We are always growing and learning. The power of words is being very misused by both presidential candidates. These two people during the debates are fantastic teachers for all of us. I feel zero connection with both. I hear and don’t believe. Too much attacking and we the people have been forgotten. No one is speaking from the heart or what could be scary is maybe they are. However, I’m a believer this is actually great for our country. In my heart I’m not alone in thinking this is a joke. Right now there is a great leader out there that is coming to inspire us all. He or she has been waiting for this moment. Politics needs and slowly is changing for the good. There is an independent thought leader that wants to lead this country and in my heart we want this person to emerge.
The world including our country is rapidly changing and the structure of our current political system is going to be challenged to be more open. Donald Trump in his unique way is showing America and this new leader the time is coming soon. One doesn’t need to be in politics to lead this beautiful country.
A classic spiritual fitness book is The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. The first agreement states be impeccable with your word. Both candidates seem to be missing this mark here and their words are starting to feel worthless. They don’t get the POWER of words and the negative words they use against each other are causing a ripple effect on our country. The one speaking the truth and being impeccable with their word could be the leading candidate if he or she had the qualities of the Humble Warrior.
We discuss what makes up a Humble Warrior on this week’s podcast. Take a listen and let us know what you think. The Humble Warrior takes full responsibility for his or her actions and doesn’t blame anyone or anything for his/her circumstances. The Humble Warrior fights the good fight. Knows how to take the high road even though his/her personal ego may take a blow. The Humble Warrior knows we are all connected. How the Humble Warrior treats his fellow man or woman is how he or she feels about himself or herself. For the Humble Warrior knows life is a mirror.
We are all human,we all make mistakes. It’s the one who takes ownership, shows humility is a true leader.
