Blown Off Course

Daily Draw: Lojong for the Layperson ~ Guidelines, #50

On letting external circumstances alter our direction.

 We got our state primary ballots in the mail yesterday.
There is a candidate I've backed in every single position she has run for. Because I admire the strength and dedication she has shown in her personal life, which has translated to honest thoughtful service in her political journey. Until now.


She has gone with the herd 93% of the time rather than vote with her brain. I can't say how disappointed I am.

But... am I the one who has been blown off course? Or is she?

  1. I love how you seamlessly use the slogans in everyday life. :) Common sense lojong!
    I fear personal interests and peer pressure has made a mockery of politics.

  2. It could be pressure from the herd but also she may need the herd to help her pass positive legislation for the community.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
