Between Sarah Palin and Nancy Pelosi there is plenty of opportunity for spiritual growth!

Why? Because both women are vehemently hated from both sides of the political spectrum!

Like many good things in God’s universe, each woman is a blessing in disguise.

It seems that few people are willing to look deeply at themselves and explore the very nature of their hatred, which has its origins in spiritual murder. But when the Lord was in the world He clearly promoted introspection over finger pointing—even if you believe you are right.

Angels know a big secret—that it is better to be good than to be right.

Truth condemns but Love saves. This is self-evident when we acknowledge that we evaluate others according to our worldviews and belief systems. Love, however, changes the whole landscape—from how we deal with others to who we really are.

Therefore, the very people we hate can help us the most to rise above our biological selves. If we learn to treat our “enemies” as a treasure chest of opportunity for growing the heart,  then everything in world magically becomes a path to heaven.  

So every evening, when we say our dinner prayer, we should humbly thank the All-Wise Creator for bringing these two women into our lives to piss us off—and offering us a real opportunity to become the highly evolved, heavenly creatures we are meant to be.

I know this is difficult. But if you at least try, you will get a real visceral sensation of going through a metamorphosis from top to bottom!

Screw self-esteem. Challenge yourself!

    It’s time for a real revolution! When the citizens rise up against the corruption and inside political dealings, then we will have FREEDOM again, the kind of freedom our forefathers had for a very brief period of time.

    Down with LIBERALS!!
    Down with CONSERVATIVES!!

    If you identify with one of these groups, you are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

    GET WITH THE SOLUTION!!

    Liberals seek to imprison your thoughts through such fascist tactics as Political Correctness and social blackmail.

    Conservatives seek to imprison your body through tactics like the ruthless perversion of our capitalist system and an over-abundance of laws that only the insiders know well enough to manipulate.

    Revolution is coming.
    Revolution is coming.
    Revolution is coming.

    Dear fullsun,

    I like passionate responses!

    All the “evils” you describe in both Liberals and Conservatives are symptoms of the “fallen” human predicament, which seeks domination over others, from the hellish principle of self-love and augmented vaingloriousness.

    The only true and lasting freedom comes from resisting the oppression from our own INNER slavery. Yes, revolution will come – in the form of a paradigm change in each of our hearts and minds.

    This movement for real self-change and spiritual cooperation is called the “Second Coming” and it is happening now!

    It is happening now!
    It is happening now!
    It is happening now!

    Spiritually yours,
    TheGodGuy
