Please forgive me; I really try to stay out of politics and keep The Daily Love as unified as possible. But I am so moved by what has happened last night that I would be betraying my very soul if I did not write the following letter and share it with you. We have witnessed history on an epic scale that will change the world as we know it. This is an incredible moment to be alive. When I was at Obama HQ at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Beverly Hills last night I witnessed so many people, perfect strangers, come together, take action and unite for something I thought everyone had forgotten about. For the first time in my life, I didn't feel so alone. Standing in this crowd, for the first time I felt truly proud to be an American. I knew I'd wake up the next day to a world full of new possibilities and that what was once only a distant dream is now a concrete reality. I've been so moved by the energy of the results of this election that I cannot silence my enthusiasm.
Yes We Did!
Today is an amazing day in history and a great day in America. It's not about Republican or Democrat; this is about a psychic shift that has happened in our country. This is not about race or creed; it's about the fundamental choice - of choosing Hope over Fear. We have witnessed a historic event, something we will be talking about for the rest of our days, and when we speak to our children and grandchildren, we can tell them, "We were there..."
We were there the day we proved that the American dream is alive and well. We were there when we stood up to the status quo and took back our country from those who promote the division of "us" and "them" and ran on a platform of fear and empty promises. We were there when the first African American was elected President of the United States of America. We were there when the phrase "Yes we can" transformed into "Yes we did".
This election is a macro example of what has been happening on a micro level in each of our lives for a long time now. We made this happen. What happened last night represents a fundamental psychic shift in America that will have a massive effect in all aspects of our experience. Things that were before impossible are now possible. Tremendous change is coming. We want to feel good, we want to believe that the good guys do win, we want to come together as one people celebrating all of our diversity, we want to believe that anything that we set our minds to is possible and that we as a people do have the power to change our life by conscious choice and action.
That's what it's about, action. To create change, we must take action. Are there things in your life that you are fed up with, things you wish you could change but think you can't? Yes you can! Stand up, ride this wave of energy and make the impossible possible in your life. Take steps with hope in your heart, faith in your mind and love in your soul. Intention + action = results.
Anything is possible. Once you believe it, then you will see it. The time is now. Let's get to work.
What a moment to be alive.
