Dear Light Group,

 
One of our Light Group members, Truman White, sent me a message a few days ago that puts our upcoming mid-term elections in a spiritual context: 
 

 November 6th [the date of the 2018 mid-term elections in the U.S.] is probably the most important mid-term election day in our lifetimes, but it is also my birthday, so I wish to comment.

This special time of season has great spiritual significance to most ancient cultures and is the greatest fire festival and feast day of the Celtic, Pagan and Hindu religions.  It’s a celebration of the victory of Light overcoming the Darkness.  They light bonfires, lamps and candles at this time to drive away the Darkness of winter and remember the return of the sun.

For many it is considered the fulcrum, or turning point of time, when we are suspended between the old and the new.  It is a time when the veils between dimensions become very thin and transparent and we can  better access the spiritual realms.  (This is where the traditions of Halloween and All Hallows originated.)

Astronomically, this is the cross-quarter day (mid-point between solstice and equinox) that marks the Celtic festival of Samhain (sah-ween, or Summer’s End).  The five-day Hindu festival of Diwali(festival of lights) starts on November 5th of this year.  So, this is a very beneficial time to pray for the good of the world and the triumph of Light over darkness.

If this is a time when “the veils between dimensions become very thin and transparent and we can better access the spiritual realms” and if you agree that this mid-term election is critically important for our nation (and the world), then let us in our prayers this Saturday “pray for the good of the world and the triumph of Light over darkness.”  
 
You might want to try a prayer such as: “Let there be Light.  Let there be Light throughout my being.  Let there be Light throughout my home.  Let there be Light throughout the city where I live.  Let there be Light throughout the United States.  Let there be Light in all candidates for election.  Let there be Light in all campaign advertising.  Let there be Light in all campaign debates.  Let there be Light in all media commentators.  Let there be Light in all voters.  May the government of the United States rest on the shoulders of the Christ.  May the government of the world rest on the shoulders of the Christ.  May the hearts, minds, and souls of all people be filled with Light, Love, Peace, and Truth.  May Peace and Goodwill prevail on Earth.”
 
Love and Light,
Tully
