Each week I will post the transcript of my podcast episode for the convenience of those who do not listen to the podcast or would like a printed version.
Welcome to Episode 69 of Mystic Musings with Tobie Hewitt. This week we will consider the Mystical Aspects of Voting as we continue our mystic journey.
I can hear some of you asking why a woman who prides herself on knowing she is a spiritual girl in a physical world is veering off the path of all things mystical, magical, and miraculous. Well, right now, it is more important to state the truth than to adhere to a theme. I promise something more in keeping with the spiritual side of life next week.
For this week, I feel the need to speak about what being spiritual beings in physical bodies means. It means we are here on this planet to learn lessons and to try to focus these lessons on raising the vibration of ourselves and those around us. For example, we practice compassion and empathy when we see someone else suffering and we offer help and solace. We practice our oneness when we create a community of inclusion and love. These simple acts raise the positive energies in and around us and allow us to grow through our time on this planet. Which is the point of being here.
The point is not to make other people suffer for our own enrichment. We may be having a physical experience, but we can take nothing physical with us when we end this incarnation and return home to the Spirit plane. This is not part of the paradigm. The lessons we learn about compassion, empathy, and love are the ones we can easily move through that needle through which the camel cannot pass. Which analogy brings me to another salient point.
The dogma espoused in all formal religions often misses the important aspect that we are all spirits and that, in being so, we are more than the rules and regulations that are created by those who, for good or not, instituted these formal doctrines to bring people together, not necessarily for spiritual growth but for other aspects of growth not necessarily conducive to the wellbeing of our highest selves. What is often missing is the call to seek knowledge of our spirit through the pursuit of mindfulness, both individually and in community. Understanding we are, above all, spirits currently inhabiting different bodies but, indeed, one larger community within the interdependent web, gives us the impetus to make sure everyone comes to the table with equal opportunity for nurturing and growth. Dogma does not do that. Acknowledgement of a shared origination does that. The differences being used to try to divide us are illusions meant to encourage learning, not distrust and denigration. We are one and we need to understand that seeking the greatest good for all means that we all raise our vibrations in and through the energy of love.
So, what does all this have to do with voting? We are currently being represented in this country by those whose egos and avarice are being fed through our reluctance to fight back against this off-the-tracks wildly veering train. We need to regain control of our government before it is too late, because I prefer to think that doing so is the lesson here and not returning to the 1930s and 40s fascist mentality that cost the loss of many lives. We were supposed to learn a lesson, one of not allowing evil to triumph over good. We are not supposed to continually repeat history and its negative consequences. We are here to create a world that more closely resembles that of the spiritual plane, where right triumphs over might and love wins over hate.
We are all, each one of us, spirits having a physical experience. Your call to experience is to vote on Tuesday, November 6. Your call is to change the current paradigm and in so doing to be the change you wish to see in this world. Please vote. Namaste!
