As a young man, I read the story (legend) about the sword in the stone. The idea was that the man who could pull the sword from the stone was worthy of being made the king and leader of the people. Strong, burly men came and tried to pull the sword from the stone and none could do so. Then a young boy came and pulled the sword from the stone and was made king and leader of the people.
The wisdom to be gleaned from this story is that the person with the highest state of consciousness is the one who should be the leader of the people. In this world, this is seldom the case. In the present presidential race, none of the candidates are perfect and we understand that, however each candidate has to work with their own individual state of consciousness, which is different for each person. The one with the highest state of consciousness is the one we should choose as the leader of our nation.
If your listen carefully to the three leading candidates, it is easy to perceive which one has attained the greater state of consciousness. The leader of any nation is usually a reflection of the general state of consciousness of the people of that nation.
If the general state of consciousness of the American people is high enough, we can have as president, the candidate with the greater state of consciousness. The elections in November will be a barometer of where the American people are in consciousness.
