An Open Letter To McCain & Obama

Sep 11, 2008
As Commander-in-chief and as president of the greatest democracy on this planet, one of you will control and influence the destinies of not only the U.S. citizens but every being on this planet.

Our country needs a change. We need a president with a different mind-set,a president who is awakened and responsive to the planetary needs of the 21st century world. Each president that comes into power has a responsibility to the next generation that will follow this generation.

Can we have peace on this planet so long as we have human suffering? Hundreds of millions of people are starving across the planet while a privileged few live in sinful luxury and unthinkable opulence. We need to bring out the individual and collective consciousness of the human species and spur them to choose between life and death.
Our economic, social and political lives have to be guided by higher spiritual values, using not only our heads but hearts as well. What good is to gain all earthly treasures and pleasures but no peace -it is like having the most luxurious bed to sleep on, but tossing and turning all night long and not getting a wink of sleep. Accumulation of wealth and material comfort is not the cause of human sufferings; it is the lower values of greed and selfishness in the pursuit of wealth, which are to be blamed.

Shift From The Heart

We cannot become better citizens of the world unless we become better individuals at heart based on more spiritual wisdom and believing in the oneness of human race. The goal is to love others as ourselves, unconditionally, to share our joys and sorrows with our neighbors. These are the basic values of unity and peace in the family, in the community, in the nation, in the world and in the oneness of the universe at large.

Globalization Through Heart-Based Life

Social devastation and mass killings in Iraq by vested interests on both sides and silence by the media on both sides , underscore the complicity of us all. It is crime against humanity of catastrophic proportions, where cruelty, violence, mass murder and social upheaval is being perpetuated by both sides. We must help Iraq in its stabilization efforts using the huge oil revenues that they are generating. Similarly we must crack down on radical terrorists, whether they are in USA, Europe, Middle East, Iran, Africa, Russia, India or Ceylon not only with weapons but by spreading goodwill to change their minds and hearts and by reforming them to be the citizens of the world.

Children of the One Universal Spirit are we all men of diverse religions, and no religion, believers and non-believers , says Lord Krishna in Gita.

There is no difference between two human beings, the only difference is the wisdom and purity at the heart level, highly expressed or poorly expressed, radiating with His light or missing of His glow, the difference is only of degrees not of kind. There is no difference between the rich and the powerful or the poor and the weak. The universal spirit is ever present in the depths of every human heart.

I would rather see a candidate who is all hearts, one who is concerned about 24,000 hunger related deaths each day, who can awaken our hearts to universal love, who is willing and able to minimize social inequities and who sees the danger of poverty as weapon of mass destruction and one who has the vision to care and foster love and understanding from the heart, to bring peace and joy to all, by honoring the earth and its people of all lands and cultures and celebrating the unity of human spirit.

Unless and until we get deeply anchored into the heart and its eternal springs of kindness, generosity, truth and unconditional love, there will be no lasting peace on this planet.

'Follow Your Heart' should be the slogan of United Nations. This is the only prescription the world needs. Follow the dictates of your heart. Purity resides in your heart; when you get anchored there you become one with love; loving thoughts, loving words and loving deeds. Feel that love, that energy, that vitality, that light which emanates from an awakened heart.
The unforgivable mistakes of the past can be best rectified if the collective wisdom of the modern age is best used to mingle the conflicting ideologies by being flexible and understanding each other from the heart and the understanding the other point of view and developing a sense of empathy and caring for others.

Be The Change

The question is not what the United Nations can do for us but what we, each individual who inhabits this planet can do or should do. Be the change, said Mahatma Gandhi that you want to bring to this world. The world is full of rich philanthropists and generous entrepreneurs, but they only touch 1% of the population with their contributions. What is needed is to create a model at the grass root level in every remote village and every remote outpost where there no access to even clean water facilities, much less hospitals or educational institutions.
As Dalai Lama puts it very empathetically : to develop scope of ones empathy in such a way that it can extend to any form of life that has the capacity to feel pain and experience happiness.

What The World Needs

What good are the booming economies across the planet, if we cannot feed the hungry masses and put food on their plates? Big corporation and vested interests behind every government are only interested to take care of their own interests. There are more than one billion people across the third world countries that are slowly starving to death and facing permanent disabilities. The so called progress is destroying the resources and needs of the poor. The need of the day is to educate and feed every child that goes to bed hungry, create housing for 800 million plus homeless across the planet, clean water facilities in each village in every third world country, not just the cities alone, providing permanent security for every elderly person who cannot take care of himself, providing free medical aid and dignified living for those who cannot afford.

. We need people like Bill Gates, Warren Buffet & Oprah Winfrey, who are the new faces of Capitalism. But that does not stop us from meeting the challenge of radical terrorism head-on with all the means at our disposal.

We Are One!
We are one one as the rainbow colors in the white light, one as in universal oneness of mankind and one with universal divine intelligence. Universal love has no barriers, makes no barriers and knows no barriers of language, race, color or creed. It is delusion of separateness that is the root cause of all evils and misery. We cannot be really happy if our fellow beings are suffering. We are all one, connected together from our hearts with the same infinite Energy. Oneness of mankind is linked from the purity of the heart. We are one with the universe. We need a leasder who can mend the broken hearts and build bridges of love and understanding.
