The political season.
Have I said lately how much I absolutely HATE politics and politicking?
Recently I heard a speaker say that "if you are a truthful person, you would never go into politics because politics and truth simply do not coexist". You don't necessarily have to be a politician to play politics. The fact of the matter is that in this society, politics and business go hand in hand, with one hand always washing the other. Same people.
One thing I've learned in life is to be very careful of what you accept from people. Whether it be a job, jewelry, car, phone...anything. 9 times out of 10 there is some type of string attached - something that will be expected from you to express your "gratitude" for "everything that someone has done for you or given you". This is magnified 10 times in the world of politics and business. The old saying "selling your soul to the devil" comes to mind.
Now, I am not saying that being grateful for assistance is something you shouldn't do. However, you should remain mindful of the type of person who is bestowing gifts and privileges upon you, and their motives for doing so. Be mindful not to sell your soul to the devil for some ole materialistic bullshit. It ain't worth it. You can't put a pricetag on your soul, your dignity, your self respect or your peace of mind
Just a thought to all my political people and those in pursuit of the next business opportunity. When you lay down with dogs, most likely you will get up with fleas.
Politics - it's a dirty slimy game, but I guess somebody has to play it.
Peace and Love.
