Are We Making Politicians gods ?

The way people often idolize political figures can feel like they're elevating them to a god-like status. This can lead to significant disappointment, especially when those leaders need to meet expectations. A good leader is often characterized by integrity, honesty, and truthfulness. However, the reality of politics frequently involves navigating complex and sometimes murky waters, where deceit and dishonesty can unfortunately be prevalent. This disillusionment is felt keenly when justice is not equally distributed, leading to a sense of injustice for all. In a world where resources are abundant, the existence of hunger and homelessness is a stark indicator of systemic failure and misplaced priorities.

Many decision-makers are far removed from ordinary people's daily struggles. This disconnection can result in policies that do not address or even acknowledge the real needs of the populace. The belief that voting will change one's struggles can lead to disappointment when the expected change does not materialize. The real power lies within each of us. By tapping into our inner god, strengths, and the resources provided by nature, we can find happiness and fulfillment independent of external circumstances.

It is important to remember the natural gifts we've been given—rain, soil, and seeds—crucial for survival and health. These resources remind us that while political systems and leaders play a societal role, they are not the sole determinants of our well-being. Embracing our agency and the divine within ourselves can help us navigate societal challenges and find a path to true contentment.

The importance of the family unit and community. The family unit has been the cornerstone of civilizations throughout history, providing stability, support, and a sense of belonging. Society thrives when families and communities work together, respecting each other's beliefs and differences.

Historically, schools, churches, and families were tightly knit, often working in unison to educate and nurture individuals. Communities were more self-sufficient, relying on local resources and trades. Farmers' markets, local trades, and communal support systems allowed people to sustain themselves and each other, fostering a sense of independence and mutual respect.

Some of these fundamental aspects have shifted as societies have modernized and globalized. There is an increased reliance on external sources for basic needs, leading to a perception that we cannot return to the self-sufficiency and community-oriented lifestyles of the past. This reliance can create an illusion of dependency, making it seem like we have lost the ability to find peace and fulfillment within our communities.

Reconnecting with these fundamentals—family, community, self-sufficiency, and mutual support—can help us regain control and peace.

We can rebuild the foundational elements that once provided stability and harmony by embracing strong family bonds, supporting local economies, and encouraging trade and skills. Respecting each other's beliefs and working together as neighbors can strengthen our communities, creating a more resilient and interconnected society.

Living in righteousness, truth, honesty, and integrity creates a foundation for positive change. Fear tactics and distractions can derail us, but staying grounded in these core principles enables us to overcome obstacles. By being the change we want to see, we contribute to a collective transformation that reflects nature's harmonious and sustaining principles.

Taking on these values and focusing on personal growth and integrity can inspire others to do the same, leading to a more just, honest, and harmonious society. Everything is possible when we live in alignment with these timeless truths.  While voting for a politician is important, it's crucial to temper expectations and focus on what we can personally influence and create within our communities.

Understand that politicians operate within a complex system with many competing interests, no matter how well-intentioned. Due to these constraints, they may not always be able to deliver on all promises. A good plan of action is to invest our time and effort into building a strong, supportive community. Please get to know our neighbors, organize local events, and create mutual aid networks.

As a community, we should focus on local projects that directly impact our community, such as community gardens, food banks, and cooperative businesses. These initiatives can provide immediate benefits and foster a sense of local empowerment—volunteer for local charities, non-profits, and advocacy groups that align with your values. Advocate for issues that matter to you and your community, from affordable housing to environmental sustainability.

By placing higher expectations on our actions and collective efforts, we can create the change we wish to see. This approach empowers individuals and communities, fostering resilience and reducing reliance on external political figures to solve all problems. Change often starts at the grassroots level, where direct action and community solidarity can make a tangible difference.
