Today we might get an opportunity to answer some big and very important questions... They are-
Is this real?
Is it in my control?
For example is widespread "voter suppression" real? Or is that just something spoken by non-experts and trolls to rouse emotions and divide? Are rednecks surrounding the polling locations in makeshift buses and 4x4 trucks with guns hanging out the windows???
Is widespread "Voter fraud" real? Or is that just something spoken by non-experts and trolls to rouse emotions and divide? Are mail trucks full of ballots being dumped in the river where you live? Are non citizens and dead people swinging the vote in your community?
Is a cold virus killing us all off? Or is that just something spoken by non-experts and trolls to rouse fear and divide? Are "cases" resulting in deaths? Have you ever had a corona virus before? What happened when you did?
Is there widespread belief Black Lives don't matter? Or are trolls orchestrating from far off places to push divisiveness? Are we being played like impetuous puppets??
Are the polls, politicians, media and trolls trying to help us or divide us? hmmmmm..... We will perhaps learn more about the folly of polling models today. Trust in the media will also be either further eroded (its already low) or might be redeemed.
DON'T BE A PUPPET!
Perhaps some of this is real... depending on your perspective and observations. Then that leads directly to question #2.
Is it in my control?
Can I control the ebb and flow of respiratory viruses? NO... so... What proactive steps can I take to strengthen my immunity and that of my family? What steps can I take to shield the ones most vulnerable?
Can I control the election or politicians? VOTE.... then step away.
Can I control the rampant divisive propaganda spewing non stop 24/7 from both sides? NO... I can turn that nonsense off!
What are proactive things I can do to decrease fear, divisiveness and the effectiveness of trolls and politicians? In myself first and then others....
Look for opportunities everyday to use the 2 important questions. Particularly if something triggers you emotionally. Set these questions up as your constant watchdog. It is a great filter...
