Maybe because politics is divisive and requires that its practitioners be motivated by acquiring power? ...not exactly an old-soul style, I imagine.
Then again, I think of people like Ghandi and Mandela who did influence the world and changed the political landscape, so who knows?
I'm on the mission for light, given the three option theory (me likey!)
For now, my purpose is and for many years has been to suck it up and be responsible for, gosh, some days it seems like everything. I'm starting to
plan for the next phase. As for things that excite me, those have changed over the years. I've been excited by and involved in, at various times, in
theater, bodybuilding, belly dance, weaving, spinning, learning everything I could about certain celebrities who died young (Elvis, Marilyn Monroe,
and most interesting of all, Jim Morrison), art, music, specialty microbrews, rock climbing, and hiking. I've felt moved enough by some things to
donate or volunteer, such as Christmas Angels, animal welfare, hospice, and horseback riding for the handicapped. My purpose seems to be pretty
fleeting and transitory, if it is whatever most excites me.
I wish I could claim to be always positive, but I also have a cynical side and sometimes get depressed at the state of the world and the direction we
seem to be going.
I think maybe when I retire I would like to be involved somehow with victims' rights.
