Whether it’s President Obama’s scant uptick of 0.1% in the projected popular vote, constant election projections, electoral predictions, battleground state concerns, tight race data from scholars and pundits, incumbency advantage assumptions, snap poll results, national debate chatter, gender gaps, media posturing, partisan politics, or statistical shuffling – this year’s cookie cutter Presidential race appears to be in line with America’s collective political persona.
School classrooms and hallways are buzzing with chatter about who will become the next president. Twitter and Facebook feeds are being overrun by endless debate talk. Election blogging is epidemic and election chatter is causing ‘election fatigue’ in every corner of America.
However, that’s not the ‘election’ this blog wishes to cover. Instead, we want to cover the ‘perfect election.’ It’s the oldest election on record and it’s the newest election on record. It’s an election that can truly make this world a better place for all of us. It can bring what religious faith traditions call heaven on earth and what the political powers that be call global stability and international cooperation.
The ‘perfect election’ will put an end to world hunger. It will erase violence and crime and war. It will create global communities of goodwill, mutual aid, and peacekeeping. It will eliminate child abuse, spouse abuse, and elderly abuse. It will create passport-free borders between countries. The ‘perfect election’ will bring an end to all forms of disease and illness. It will guarantee our partnership with nature and the environment.
The national debate about the probability of such a ‘perfect election’ will most likely attract media attention. There will be religious denominational gaps in acceptance. Twitter and Facebook feeds will fill cyberspace with bits and bytes of hope and joyous personal testimony. Snap polls will report unbelievable worldwide peace and tranquility.
The ‘perfect election’ we’re talking about is each person’s election to honor his/her innate divinity and to honor the innate divinity in everyone else. It will mean that humankind has raised its collective spiritual consciousness an octave – no, two octaves, maybe three octaves – higher. There will be global partisanship because we will all realize we all come from the same Source.
The world will become more spiritual than religious. There will be no more Baptist moon, Buddhist sun, Sufi river basins, Methodist lakes, Mormon mountain ranges, Hindu savannahs, Catholic plains, Jewish deserts, or Presbyterian grasslands. The esoteric traditions from all of these religious faiths will unite us.
The ‘perfect election’ will come from a popular vote, not a polarized vote. The impoverished splendor within each of us will burst forth, uniting us as we let our lights shine. There will be no need for post-election debate or bi-partisan posturing. The results will be organic and heartfelt. The whole world will adopt a two party system: one will be our human selves and the other will be our divine selves. Our chief occupation will be to align our human selves with our divine nature and help others to do the same. When we do that out of love and respect for others it will be the second time fire has been discovered.About the author: Rev. Dr. Bil Holton is a metaphysician, prolific author, and dynamic speaker.
