In the war over land where the world began
Prophecies say it's where the world will end
But there's a tremor growing in our own backyard
Fear in our heads, fear in our hearts
Prophets in the graveyard
I'm sorry that my country voted for fear and hatred.
I guess the environment has been ripe for it with all the years of media fear-mongering and economic hardship.
There is no "evil external force" influencing our acts towards one another- it is humans behaving as humans do to each other and all that entails, all that is capable of, for better or worse. We have such a broad spectrum within us. There are angels and they will help us if we ask.
As a race we have to start owning it instead of passing it off to externalized forces created to relinquish personal responsibility and keep a select few in control. I think this will take a long time but we have already come a long way. Humanity moves on an individual personal level and also on a collective level.
We are all individually responsible for treating each other with basic regard at the least, and hopefully kindness. The results of an election should not change that.
Things might get pretty real, the only thing we can really do is just keep doing what we are doing and don't get personally infected by this madness. Stay safe, happy painting, meditating, yoga-ing, writing, gardening, whatever it is that you do which brings joy to you and others around you.
The Universal Law is impartial.
It will give you anything you believe.
It will throw you garbage or roses
depending on the energy you put in.
You are the one in charge,
and you must accept that and stand alone.
If you think God is coming down to fix things for you,
God is out playing golf.
The Light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness did not comprehend it.
There is nothing good or bad,
only thinking makes it so.
Tao Te Ching
The election is only four years-
Fouettes are forever!
