There is a message that has been brewing in my soul since the election in the uSA. I have come across many responses of sadness, despair, shock and outrage as a result of the election results, responses that surprised me from people I respect and love, who seem to have a perspective that I do not quite share. In my innocence and naivite as a dreamer, as a “hopeless/hopeful romantic”, I have come to have a perspective that always attempts to see things through a higher perspective, through the vision of Spirit, of God’s love and of the evolution of consciousness on the planet that I have come to be a part of, to serve and experience. There is a flow of awareness and evolution that is in process and we don’t always have the ability or capacity to know the whole picture. It is my perhaps naive view, that everything, EVERYTHING, that happens has a higher purpose, however horrifying, traumatic, joyful or cruel, it may seem. I have complete trust that there is a higher purpose also in these events that are happening in human history, in the history of the planet and the current moment in the evolutionary process of our “civilization”. Empires, civilizations have risen and fallen for countless millenia. Within the framework of time (or no-time) everything evolves and is part of our soul’s journey towards wholeness, towards the recognition of God’s love manifesting in our lives and moving towards the eventual world of Heaven on Earth, a “return” to a New Dawn, an age of peace, love, harmony and cooperation on this planet. It is not necessarily given to us to see how the steps along that journey are part of this unfolding, but I hold in my heart the dearness of this vision and the Divine Purpose that is at work. Our human perspective has been conditioned heavily by the traumas, acculturation and distortions of our upbringing, of our limited brains and perspectives, and I am praying and holding space for the evolution that is now occurring to blossom into the reality of this vision that my heart tells me IS the New Reality unfolding. May it be so for you too, in whatever way it can manifest for your deepest happiness.
It’s just too bad that so many animals and the earth itself, not to mention vulnerable people, will be hurt or in the case of endangered species, eliminated. I have had similar thoughts to yours, but it seems more like a latent disease or a cancer expressing itself. The path of healing is Now.
