We’ve tried politics and religions for millennia – with utterly disastrous consequences – now let’s learn the way to live.
Everything is connected in the oneness. That’s the good news. And that’s the bad news.
When Donald Trump violated all international laws, to say nothing of decency, humanness and the law of cause and effect, he may have made your life, your work and your relationships harder as well.
While most Americans don’t go around fixated on the Iranians, Iraqis, or even the Russians and Chinese, our country has long been hated by many peoples around the world. They don’t hate us for our freedoms, they hate us for what we’ve done to theirs. That hatred just got supercharged by Trump’s despicable actions. We may not yet fully realize what it means that many, many millions of people are quite consciously directing intense anger and hatred against our country and, thereby, against…us.
But there are now processions of mourners, numbering in the hundreds of thousands, engaging in mass outpourings of grief…and anger. These are also ancient cultures which, despite having various religious and political factions, etc., have an awareness of their own much longer history, wars and invasions of their homelands. They have a certain cohesiveness and sense of identity that I doubt most Americans can understand, since we are often held together by nothing more enduring than our interest in sports teams, pop stars, etc.
Despite all of the political rhetoric about making the country great (again?) Trump is the symbolic composite of what the real underlying consciousness-illness of America has long been, i.e. a religiously endorsed, lust for profit and domination above all else.
Paint it any which way you want, cloak it in euphemisms, delusions of divine destiny, “American exceptionalism” etc., etc., when it came down to it, the best we could muster was a choice between one power-hungry, psychopathic warmonger, ready to blow the world to bits, and an equally power-hungry, mentally challenged, megalomaniac whose desperate act of murder may lead us to the same…end.
All of that being said, we may indeed notice an increase in anxiety, irritation, anger, impatience, argumentativeness, etc., in ourselves, as well as an increase in the actions of other human beings who’ve lost control over the good human nature. We are often a quick-to-anger, short-tempered people who, absent self-control and self-responsibility, all too easily resort to violence.
But, as always, we alone are completely responsible for our own thoughts, feelings and actions, even though an increase in the negative energies and actions from others, as consequences of our institutionalized policies of irrationality and aggression, may continue to increase.
Now, more than ever, we must cultivate and develop every aspect of self-control and self-responsibility. We must use our awareness of the arising feelings, urges and impulses to recognize and control our own thoughts and the feelings and actions they lead to. When the disharmony or disturbing thoughts and/or feelings arise, we must seek their origin within us, no matter what may have seemingly triggered them externally.
We need to pause, to take a deep breath literally and/or figuratively, and find the way to…relax and regain control over ourselves. While this may become an increasingly tall order when external events may seem overwhelming, there are many ways to do this.
For instance, one of Billy Meier’s meditations/affirmations is:
I always remain relaxed and thereby gain might over myself.
Stets bleibe ich entspannt und gewinne dadurch Macht über mich selbst.
The Spiritual Teaching, The Spiritual Teaching
We’ve tried politics and religions for millennia – with utterly disastrous consequences – now let’s learn the way to live. The real way to live, where we actually learn what it means to live in peace, love, freedom and harmony.
Studying the books on the spiritual teaching, listed below, is highly recommended, as is coming together to share our understanding with each other in study groups and also practicing the Salome Peace Meditation.
We can learn to internalize what we learn from our practices and study, so that we can regain and return to our inner peacefulness, and let it be a vessel to carry us onward, even when the waters around us may be swirling in uncertainty.
