While I’m not ready today to take on the topics of the border wall, the me too movement, the opioid crisis or state of our union, I did hear something interesting yesterday I wish to comment on. During a panel discussion on the current state of politics, one of the panelist commented that President Trump was not as interested in healing as much as he was stirring things up and that strikes a chord. We see politicians acting like school children, we see people protesting and fighting, people losing their jobs as a result of inappropriate behaviors and organizations we’ve always held in high esteem being discredited. We’ve had some people even blame the President for our extreme weather!! I’m sure some of you (and you know who you are) could add more to this list, but that is not my point. My point is, the world we live in has changed and changed dramatically and while I don’t have the answers, I also don’t blame anybody. I do however see the need to step up, and I see where my part and responsibility is.
I believe my responsibility is in the healing. All of the issues I have with myself, our world and some I didn’t think I had are being presented to me daily, to actively heal. It is my responsibility and I believe all of ours to do the healing work. All of those on the right and left, the deplorables and the intellects, the men and the women need to have a dialogue, not a shouting match with others but a dialogue with ourselves. We need to hit the reset button and really look honestly at our feelings, because it is our feelings, created by our thoughts that we need to be responsible for and heal. Perhaps in time we can honestly have a conversation about these things, I hope so. If we have hatred and fear in our heart and thoughts we will have hatred and fear in our world.
To create a new world is hard work.
