We often use to associate “politics” with interests different that have anything to do with love and the power of the heart.
We use to think that politics has to provide governance, financial measures and other laws in order to live a good quality of life in the country.
We use to think that politics is something “they” have to do from the upside down and that at least we can demand some measures to have regardly actions.
We use to think that politics is too far from the daily life.
But politics starts with us. It starts from us.
You look for the “good” candidate, but do you think about how would you like to feel in your country? How would you like to feel when they apply for some measurements that will involve you and your beloved-ones? Where do they actions come from? From a place of power, fixing together politics, social and financial topics, or from place of love, fixing politics, social and financial topics as well?
Just you to know, Jung says: “Where love rules, there is no will to power; where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.”
I started to support a politics group of local participatory democracy 3 years ago; my city has been succeeded with lots of major, none of them able to get 4 years of government without collapse. Three years ago we had a big result but not enough to let our candidate major to win.
After 3 years, here we go again. Same place, same carousel: the early end of the major.
Today, thanks to my coaching skills, I’ve realized something new.
Wikipedia says: “Participatory democracy strives to create opportunities for all members of a population to make meaningful contributions to decision-making, and seeks to broaden the range of people who have access to such opportunities”. Making meaningful contributions is what coaching does. It helps you create a meaningful life. That is also: bring your uniqueness in the society and make meaningful contributions to decision-making as well.
That’s why you should support your politics group with your heart and your coaching skills. You can play a big role sharing a different point of view, that maybe lack to be considered in the politics life.
You must let people know how much they can achieve great results acting from a place of love and how much this concerns the health of a place. The heart creates what you focus on but the mind is often not aligned with the heart. We are quickly evolving in this planet and we are called to pay more attention to a sustainability life-style. This is the time when we’re called to act with love, for a lovable result which is going to involve all the people.
Because people would love to be involved in decisions, they would love to get asked what do they think about a topic. They would love to contribute in the community life and to share their opinion. Politics is not only about social, economic and financial measure, is about how do you feel in your city too. In fact, the environment is also the result of people’s thoughts and emotions. And if they are unhappy or they don’t feel part a community, eventually they’re lowing the energy, the enthusiasm and the wellness of that place.
So, what are you waiting for? Step out and start to be supportive for your community’s self-care!
