Is God Pro-Choice??

   I've noticed recently on many spiritual blogs, twitter, facebook..etc.. many who are suggesting that if you are a deeply spiritual being that you have some kind of obligation to vote for a certain candidate or party platform or you are somehow not in line with God/Goddess....I cannot disagree more. First off as a deeply spiritual being, I would never presume to tell any other human being who they should vote for. I personally do not believe that God/Goddess cares one way or another who I vote for as long as I am using my inner intuition in the process.
       Who is anyone to tell me that the Divine is pro-choice or pro-life. What makes my views righteous and someone else's evil? That smacks of dogma if you ask me. Also, I find it distasteful for someone to give personal attacks against  a political candidate and in the next breath say that we should love all human beings. It is one thing to disagree with someone's political views and  another to vilely attack their character. I happen to believe that the two men running for president are good and decent human beings, wonderful husbands and fathers, and genuinely want to do what is best for their country. My responsibility is to listen to my 'higher Self'' when deciding who I would choose to be the leader of our Nation.

   “Making others happy, through kindness of speech and sincerity of right advice, is a sign of true greatness. To hurt another soul by sarcastic words, looks, or suggestions, is despicable.”
Paramahansa Yogananda

    It might be wise for us to heed the words of Yoganandaji and take a look at our own character before judging the character of another. We can disagree with others without holding them in contempt and spreading negative hearsay  in regards to their character. We should listen to the Spiritual Masters and Gurus  of the past, whose very lives were shining examples for us in how we should treat our fellow human beings, and yes that does include politicians:)

Jai Mata Di!



  1. One thing I have never understood is how the candidates who claim to be 'Godly' are the ones who have little interest in taking care of the people. Those same candidates want to promote big business. If these candidates wanted to follow what the Bible should they not want to feed the hungry and clothe the poor and care for the sick? Maybe I am just ignorant because I don't follow American politics. I have trouble enough keeping up with what is going on in Canada!

  2. Thank you for this post! I have noticed the same thing, and bugs the crap out of me. I feel how I feel about certain issues and I vote my conscience on them. How I vote is no one else's business. Asking a person: "Who'd ya vote for" is like asking a woman: "When's your period?" How heavy was the flow?
    It's nobody's bloody business. The Gods are above our petty concerns, really, but they created us with the miracle of Free Will, so they want us to exercise it and vote on what we believe in. It is WRONG is put down people who feel differently than us or vote differently than us. It pisses people off so much that they can't figure out which side I lean to. Neither. Bright Blessings on the pivotal day in American politics. Thank the Gods that the negativity will soon end.
