Most people may not admit it, but they are consuming Trump and his world like entertainment. Probably those who did not vote him into office. For many, it takes the place of the usual T.V. lineup. It’s got it all…scandal, Russian intrigue, chaos, character assassinations, in-wars, and porn stars.
I am enjoying it.
We stay tuned with bated breath for the next episode. We wonder, will all the seasons and episodes be available on Netflix soon? Definitely binge-worthy.
He’s become the man you love to hate…move over Dallas. J.R. Ewing Is looking more and more like a Boy Scout.
And, just like our favorite T.V. shows, we end up screaming at times into the T.V. set, or our iPad, in disbelief as to what we are witnessing. Oh, the humanity!
And even though the commander-in-chief enjoys running the government like a reality show, this is the real thing.
BEAUTY IN THE CHAOS
But, for those of us who have for the most part left our energetic connections to the matrix behind, we have the luxury of watching the drama unfold without it really affecting us or our lives.
What they are going through in that world, we have already gone through. They are in their formative stages of their own awakening. So formative that they don’t yet recognize them.
They can’t see the beauty in the chaos.
So now, we are O.K. for the most part with what is happening in the world. That doesn’t mean it won’t affect us emotionally at times, get us riled up. But, and this is a sticking point, when we do get triggered, it’s because our mind is being triggered.
Our beloved mind is still trying to hold onto its power and control. And it will try to make a reality show of it for us. It wants to hold our attention as much as possible, lest the ratings plummet.
“If I just show her, in living color, how much there is to fear in her body. With her finances. With her relationships. Let me throw in some drama…she used to really get triggered with drama.”
But what seems to be happening is we are not so much triggered like before. And that’s because we have energetically let go of so much. We don’t seem to hold on to worry and fear like before. So dear mind has to step up its game.
The mind tries to introduce more drama. Things are getting a little too quiet. “She’s getting bored because she can’t relate to the world like before. The perfect time for some drama. I don’t want to be forgotten”, says our mind. “I am afraid you will leave me behind, because I don’t serve a purpose anymore.”
This is when we reassure our mind that of course it’s coming along, but now it doesn’t have to feel responsible for our enlightenment. For our health, or our finances.
The mind now serves us, not the other way around.
So dear mind, says, “oh, great. I was getting weary of being responsible for her health, and her financial abundance. Especially considering all the rules have changed, and nothing seems to work like it did before.”
But what happens, like anything else that requires getting used to, is the mind lets go, relaxes more, but then doesn’t see immediate evidence of things changing, so it dives back in and tries to take hold of the steering wheel again.
It’s not too keen on this trust thing.
But the alternative is a whirlwind of colorful chaos. The daily world news. Very entertaining. A good distraction maybe.
But just like that news provided by various media outlets, we can choose to get invested in it or not. Because at the end of the day, it doesn’t really touch our lives in a profoundly negative way, unless we allow it to.
The stock market is a beautiful example of how market trends are directly affected by fears and insecurities. And how the mind works. As the President moves abruptly back and forth on issues and policies, it creates anxiety and insecurity in investors.
As our mind vacillates from trust, and relaxing into things, to trying to control and coerce, trying to do things all on its own, it creates chaos in our life.
Trump is in the habit of firing those who are there to assist and council him in important matters, and his pattern has always been ignoring or attacking those who work for him who are trying to direct him to the information and strategies that would best serve the country. Instead he is more and more trying to run the country from his own impulses….from the seat of his pants.
He seems to want complete loyalty to his view at the expense of the balance that would result from the give and take of those with a different perspective than his.
This is not so different from what goes on in our mind, and how it relates to our life and our soul. The mind is desperately trying to assert itself, and now it becomes a survival issue. It’s been in power for so long, and now it’s being threatened because it is asked to soften and allow another presence into the picture.
It’s being asked to relax, to allow the feminine perspective to be present and to trust that perspective. It’s a balanced feminine. It works with the balanced masculine. It can be trusted. And beyond the Feminine and the Masculine, it’s The I AM.
And you can’t get more balanced than that.
Trump’s perspective is often wildly outdated and isn’t working very well, but he still has lots of supporters.
Same for the mind.
For Trump it’s his base, those who voted for him and stay loyal to him. Some in his base support his perspective and his ideologies, and some look past them because they truly believe that he can protect them from the clear and present ‘dangers’ lurking ‘out there.’ And it’s all based in fear.
Fear that isn’t really based in fact or truth. in fact Trump is a wizard in his ability to built an entire lifestyle and reputation for being a successful businessman on smoke and mirrors. And all the fact-checking in the world isn’t going to change the minds of the fearful.
In fact, if you try to convince his die-hard supporters that he is really not there to serve them, but to serve himself and is trying to maintain power and control at everyone’s expense, what do they do?
They double down. They are even more adamant about him being their savior.
Same for the mind. The carbon-based mind is built on lack and fear, primarily. So forget about trying to change your mind. The best thing we can do is just accept it. Just as we are accepting the world out there. Not loving it, necessarily. We don’t have to love everything that comes down the pike. We don’t have to participate with it. And we don’t have to make it our truth.
If dear mind is taunting you with worry, fear, concern, guilt or self-doubt, telling you that you are not doing it right, or should be doing more, you can’t really stop it. If you do, it will just double down and try harder to maintain control of its perspective. It will find evidence of that perspective to show you the perils awaiting you if you don’t comply. So, forget about any teaching or information that tells you you can change your mind to change your life.
But, and I think you will like this….you can turn down the volume. Distract yourself. Take a walk. I do crossword puzzles.
You can stay tuned to the next exciting episode of As Trump Turns if you like, but as far as your mind goes, you can tune into your I AM.
And eventually dear mind is going to feel like maybe it better get on board because it’s not getting a rise out of you like before. And it will be like, “hey, this isn’t so bad. I can ride this wave. Whatever this is, this new kid in town, it’s doing pretty good without me. I can tend to other stuff I’m really good at, but not the stuff that I just can’t figure out.
Hmmmm, life is pretty good.”
