PERSPECTIVE

Found on a friend’s FB wall. I’m going to add the title: 

PERSPECTIVE

This post is about Donald Trump and the sense of threat he either elicits or soothes.

.

One of the first times I recall feeling a sense of threat I was in first grade.

.

We used to have what were called shelter drills. An alarm would go off in the middle of the school day and we had to march out of our classroom into the hallway and crouch down on the floor hugging our heads between our knees.

.

This position was supposedly the safest thing to do just in case a nuclear bomb hit our city.

.

One day I read up on nuclear bombs and learned how they vaporize human beings instantly, no matter what yoga posture you are practicing in the classroom or hallway.

.

Mushroom clouds nightmares plagued my night life as a growing boy. That shit was whacked!

.

Teachers of Zen used to whack students on the head with a stick when they got distracted, as if to say, “Wake up! Pay attention! Be here now!”

.

Here and now we appear to have a Zen stick occupying the oval office, whacking humanity with his every tweet, and masses of people are waking up and paying attention.

.

Welcome to earth 2017, currently populated with humans dealing with the latest installment of PTSD, President Trump Stress Disorder.

.

Questions That Improve Digestion

.

Having trouble digesting it all? Me too. Here are some questions I’ve been chewing on lately that are helping soothe my digestive system.

.

Could Donald be playing the part of a colonic that is helping to get the crap moving that’s been stuck in our system, igniting masses of previously apathetic people to participate in the political process? 

.

Could this Stress Disorder somehow be a part of Divine Order?

.

What would Jesus do if he were around in this time in history? 

.

Might he be advising us to love our enemas, or might he he be helping us to kick the money changer out of the temple?

.

Or perhaps a bit of both?!?

.

I like to see adversity as intensive therapy in which everything that is brought to the table can serve the personal growth and evolution of humanity.

.

“It takes great learning to understand that all things, events, encounters and circumstances are helpful.”

~ A Course in Miracles

.

Donald J. Trump is providing enormous opportunities to bring up Daddy issues and lessons in discernment for all of us to process.

To many he’s an abusive father figure, a bully that we need to stand up to. He is inspiring us to find our voice, speak up, and take our power back.

.

And to some he’s a protector/savior type, a hero with the balls to say the hard stuff, make the hard decisions, and shake everything up.

.

It’s like there are two worlds.

.

In one Trump is grabbing our collective pussy, violating our sacred feminine energy.

.

And in a whole different world, right here on the same planet, Trump supporters are experiencing a violation that has already occurred, the threat coming from foreigners invading our country through leaky borders/boundaries, taking our jobs and terrorizing our nation.

.

Here comes Daddy Trump to the rescue!

.

I love what Emmanuel, channeled by Pat Rodegast, says in one of his books:

.

Fear says I will keep you safe. Love whispers, you already are safe.

Those who feel threatened by Trump and those who feel he has come as savior to prevent further threat are currently camped out in two diametrically opposed worlds.

.

Can we agree to disagree? Can we respect our differences? Is there a rational conversation available when a sense of threat is so active in both camps?

.

The Chinese symbol for crisis consists of both danger and opportunity.

.

We called this in for the opportunity. The greater the sense of threat, the greater the healing opportunity available.

.

But what does one do if you, like me, just want all of us to just get along?

.

I’ve been a peacemaker my whole life. I’m not a fan of strong conflicts, people being hurt. I make my living building bridges, not walls.

.

But I recognize that forces of nature sometimes separate oil and water, and that trying to get in the way of that is foolish.

.

A forest fire destroys the old and decaying, and new, lush life rises from the ashes.

.

It’s lovely that a Course in Miracles says “Nothing real can be threatened”, but then what do we do with our sense of threat that our ego believes is real and valid?

.

How do you heal, personally, when your nervous system is so freakin’ nervous?

.

For me, meditation, practicing the lessons of A Course in Miracles, EFT tapping, inner child work, and regular weekly coaching/therapy is all helpful.

.

But I’m also a big believer in saying “NO!” and even in some cases, “NO FUCKING WAY!!!!”

.

If you were a child and you were violated in some way by a parent who used their authority and their power to keep you down, then this Trump Presidency is your breakthrough choice point, a chance to reclaim your power, to heal the energy of past violation by standing up to present abuse.

.

If you feel inspired to shout “NO!” at perceived violation, I would suggest you shout it with all your heart and all your resources. Liberate your passion and get creative about it.

.

No slumping shoulders and or head hanging low. This is an uprising. Time to rise up.

.

But don’t stop there.

.

Let your ’NO’ lead you to your YES that you also express loudly and boldly.

.

Be the change you want to see in the world, as Gandhi suggested.

And when you are planted in your passionate yes, focused on your positive vision, you no longer have an opposition to oppose.

.

“The opposite of love is fear, but what is all encompassing can have no opposite.”
-A Course in Miracles

.

No opposition. No enemies. Both Trump supporters and detractors have all been feeling threatened.

.

A sense of threat is fueled by the adrenal glands, and adrenaline offer us two choices: fight or flight.

.

Those choices are whacked. There is so much more to humanity than fight or flight.

.

We have grown beyond that in many ways. Evolution is with us.

People like Jesus, Martin Luther King and Gandhi brought to our awareness a choice besides fight or flight, one that activates the pineal gland and opens the heart.

.

It’s called being a love activist.

.

Make a stand for what you are marching towards, and pay no mind to what you are against.

.

This is what we are here learning at Trump University, to take the high road that’s already been paved by Gandhi, King, Jesus, etc,

There is no opposition, just an opportunity for masses of people to stand up and reclaim Lady Liberty, the feminine energy of inclusiveness that made this country what it is.

.

Trump and his belief system has bitch slapped the rising feminine energy on this planet. And she will not take this lying down. Her time has come.

.

Hey, we stood up to a tyrant king once before, and it worked out pretty miraculously.

.

Fear says I will keep you safe. Love whispers, You already are safe.

These are exciting times…
