This is the time of the great changing. Where we release all that no longer works for us and we envision the kind of world we truly want to live in. Like it or not, Trump is taking us into this change.
I hear the fear, and I understand it. All that we know, our values, our way of life, are being challenged. And all human decency seems lost. But I beg you to see it all on a different level. A level that offers hope.
I look at the whole world to see the bigger picture. Since Trump has taken office, the whole world is up in arms against what is seen as "wrong" in our society---racism, bigotry, violations against women's rights, civil rights etc. But what is happening is that the rest of the world is uniting. Trump's behavior has caused us all to come together and say "NO! This is not the kind of world we want to live in." And that is what is exciting. People are no longer afraid to speak out. Women have risen up. We are coming out of our complacency and we are demanding a world that works together, that offers compassion, and that cares for one another.
Changes are always difficult. There will be chaos, there will be human suffering, there will be times we want to give up. But hold onto the vision of a world united in equality and love. A world where there is no war, only diplomacy. A world where there are no poor, there are no starving children, and all are cared for. We can move toward that world, if we have the courage to use our voices and say "No more. I stand in peace and love."
To quote from Mother Teresa, "If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten we belong to each other."
Blessings to you,
