Do you really think sitting around and complaining is going to do anything for yourself? It won’t… And may possibly do more harm than good.
Why is discussing politics and religion so controversial? Some people don’t seem to believe in either one but can spend so much (negative) energy venting frustrations about them.
Let’s take God (religion) for example. If He really does exist, then He is outside of our ability to comprehend or understand, beyond what He chooses to reveal about Himself…. Just the nature or description of “God” suggests a “higher” order or being.
So, you make a choice to seek Him and believe what you find, or not… No use complaining that others chose to believe in Him.
Same with politics… don’t you think? If someone believes in President Obama, (and elects him), what is complaining going to accomplish? The (election) system does not make sense to me, but I’m not going to allow other people to influence “my thoughts” about it.
Ok, so I have an unfair advantage since I have spent the last 35 years practicing how to control my own mind, and not letting others do so….
It’s really pretty simple, once you get over yourself. We tend to be our own worst enemy when it comes to things within us.
Mankind knows very little about the invisible (unseen) properties of our existence, but one thing stands out as true. We all have the same ability and power “to choose” for ourselves what we think and believe…. So make a choice and quit complaining already. The best way to stay away from frustration is to make sure other people do not think for you… if it does not work out the way you want, you might start blaming, complaining and get yourself all tweaked over things you can’t control.
Now… enough of my rant… and on to the Obamanator…. Those of you that elected him are feeling pretty good right now. Those that did not, may be feeling…. not so good. This is a great opportunity to practice “taking back your mind,” which is one (maybe the only) area that no one has rights to. If he has you upset beyond your control, then keep reading.
If you have the power, money and control to change things, go ahead, but if you are like me and do not have any influence over anything other than yourself, use “this time” to your full advantage.
It has been proven (to me) that our bodies are designed to function best when calm and peaceful. It’s not rocket science to know that relaxation allows a better flow of blood and energy throughout our entire bodies. This promotes healing and rejuvenation that meds just won’t give you. We actually keep ourselves from peace by our negative thoughts, words and actions. Once you get control of your thoughts, your body will follow… and yes, I have experienced extreme circumstances, to put into practice what I preach…. The final vote is, Peace is much better than anxiety.
For more details and some tips on how to relax yourself in stressful circumstances, read the our post titled “Do you need (or want) peace that money and fame could never buy?”
Otherwise, he is in office now, so make peace with yourself and stop letting others get you troubled.
If you want to vent in a useful way by doing enough research to speak the truth about President Obama, then let us know. We are looking for guest bloggers that know more about politics than we do.
One more thing, there is a profound passage in the Bible (John 14:27) that tells us “Jesus offered us His peace, not as the world gives”…. It’s worth checking out….
