Politicians do not need to be ‘Spiritual’ to be ‘Awake’, ‘Conscious’ and to just be the Good Public Representatives that we should be able to expect them all to be.
The term ‘Spiritual’ is massively overused. It is used inappropriately in many cases and within the circumstances to which and to the behaviour of those to whom it is applied.
Awakened Politicians cannot be qualified by the group they belong to, by their affiliations, by the qualifications or type of experience that they have.
Awakened Politics is not about what Politicians say. Awakened Politics is all about what Politicians actually do and how they do it too.
Being a good person in the most meaningful way is not something that is within the gift of any other person, group or organisation to qualify in another, in any way.
Being ‘Conscious’ or ‘Awakened’ is not about being better than anyone else. It’s about being the best we can be. About seeing everything as it really is and responding and then acting in the best ways that it is possible for us all to do so.
Nobody has to be part of anything or be qualified in some way by anybody or anything else to be the best that they can be in every possible sense.
Yes, Conscious Politics could work within the current political structure.
But for Politics to be fully Conscious, it would require everyone operating or functioning with the current political structure to change the way they think. To change the way they behave. To change the way they interact. To change their experience (and therefore step aside to allow people who are better suited to Conscious Politics to take over). To basically change everything that they are and currently do.
Existing Politicians and the Political Parties they are a part of will not step aside or change. They are unconscious of the impact of their presence and what the real cause of all the problems are that they are failing to address.
Diversity, alternative Political Philosophies and differences in Politics don’t promote or guarantee fairness and balance.
Anyone appointed to a position of influence and authority because of the physical, material or ideological difference they have with others is more likely to prioritise those who they most closely identify with – or for want of a better term, prioritise the interests of ‘those of their own kind’.
The benchmark of any system of government and the political system that facilitates or leads it being truly representative, Fair, Balanced and Just, is what the politician or political decision maker does on behalf of the person they know least about, have least in common with or are least likely to understand.
A system of government cannot and will not work in the best interests of all, if it doesn’t consider and treat fairly, justly and without bias of any kind, even the very people we might consider that we have every reason want excluded in some way or to despise.
If you have read this and immediately think of someone or some group of people that you feel to be undeserving of the same care and consideration that you for yourself would like, you can now use that feeling and emotion to understand how any system of governance and politics will quickly be undone.
