Today is an historic day. Hearing the announcement, by President Obama, of his support of same sex marriage, I felt the blog I had previously prepared needed to wait for another day.
Why would a president, who is obviously running for reelection, make this announcement? Especially at this time. Simply and profoundly because it is the right thing to do. He was speaking from his heart and doing so at a pivotal time in our history. There will be some who will say that they don’t agree with his position. They have the right to their own opinion. I do agree with his position for many reasons. The most important ones come from my spiritual learning and awakening. “Judge not least ye be judged.” As I recall that passage, it was not situational, it was absolute. In my book, I talk about not judging others because we have not a walked a mile in their shoes. The Universal Energy/God is a part of ALL of us. Our world will continue to evolve through love of self and love of ALL others. Hate, fear or rejection are not a part of my life. When you experience the loss of a child and other family members you realize the importance of love for all and in all.
I applaud the bravery President Obama exhibited. He chose to explain that his position evolved, partially, as he worked shoulder to shoulder with his staff members who are in same sex relationships. He saw the love and guidance they exhibited toward their children and saw that love conquers all. It eliminates the fear of any differences that may exist.
My book, Just Behind the Door, is about loss and spiritualism. However, it is more than that really. It is about how unconditional love is the Alpha and Omega of the Universe. That love is in all, for all and through all. I know this in my heart.
Thank you, Mr. President.

Wow Mary, You are so right we need to stop judging others. President Obama was speaking from the heart, he really stuck his neck out. We are all children of the Universe. Instead of looking for the difference, we need to embrace those differences. What a wonderful world this could be, by just giving unconditional love to the all mankind. Thanks again Mary. CL
I agree Carolyn 🙂 love you
Aunt Mary I loved your blog tonight, I love reading all of your blogs!!! I was pretty happy to hear president Obama’s announcement today also!! I ordered your book I can’t wait to read it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Aunt Mary. Love you 🙂 :u
Outstanding post, Mary. Couldn’t agree with you more. Love wins. Still enjoying your book, trying to spread it out–but will have to reread it.
I agree with your kudos for the President. It took great courage, but it was obvious that he put politics aside and made the statement from his heart…and because it’s the right thing to do. We celebrated the event with some gay and straight friends who all love and respect one another, and appreciate our unique differences and gifts that we all have to offer!!
