I will not tell you who to vote for, or who not to vote for. If you ask for my opinion or advice, it is my duty to respond in a way that empowers you and respects the larger sphere of life. If the words I speak or write seem a bitter pill to your ego, you are free to reject them, or, to consider whether your ego may be standing in the way of truth, conscious evolution, and inner liberation.
We need both hope and personal action. There is always hope in the goodness of other human beings, in believing that others can learn to care about others (including animals, insects and all life forms) as much or even more than oneself. But hope alone is of little help. We must lead by example, inspiring others through our actions.
