Have you been following the American campaign for a new President? Or did you do your best to avoid it? Not that you can when it’s plastered every where!!
I really didn’t follow it sufficiently to know whether Hillary Clinton would have been any better as a leader. But I’ve been amazed at how Donald Trump has been able to stay on the election train given all the dreadful things he says and has done. How is it that such a man can be elevated and elected as a President?? What does it mean for the country? What does it mean for America and international affairs?
I’ve seen, read and listened to a number of posts, articles and speakers commenting on the election results. Many are shocked that he was elected and many are effectively in mourning as they feel their voice, equality and empowerment have been stripped away.
So what does this election result bring up for you? What thoughts and feelings?
How To Trump The Trump
On the surface is all the discomfort of our perceptions ie the reality we see, and the corresponding emotion that comes from perceiving something as either good or bad. However if you dig deeper below the surface on a bigger more quantum level, there’s a whole lot more going on.
We live in a universe of duality, where everything exists in pairs – masculine/feminine, night/day polarity. These polar opposites – including positive/negative, pain/pleasure, gain/loss, good/bad, happy/sad etc – exist in unison and together form the whole. You cannot separate these two parts, so both parts exist at the same time. Our perceptions however can only be experienced in one-sidedness, either one end of the pole or the other. If we feel the pain, there is still pleasure that exists simultaneously, we’re just not seeing it at that time.
This can feel very uncomfortable. However there is a divine order to everything.
The election of Donald Trump as President is no different. Where there is loss there is also gain …
Donald Trump is a very polarising man. People can’t stay neutral to him, they react strongly to him. Thus making them take a line for or against what he’s saying. Remember Donald Trump is just ONE man. I encourage you to look beyond him and see where there is a real opportunity which can empower you and others to make a difference.
Empower Yourself By Rising Above
No one can take away what you feel inside; only you can shift that. You can fall victim to this situation and what you feel. Or you can sift your focus to a more empowering one, and rise up like the phoenix out of the ashes.
You can empower yourself and triumph over Trump.
The Trump Card
According to Wikipedia: the trump card can be defined as:”Typically, an entire suit is nominated as a trump suit – these cards then outrank all cards of plain (non-trump) suits. In other contexts, the term trump card can refer to any sort of action, authority, or policy which automatically prevails over all others.”
Likewise Donald Trump has trumped by winning the election. He’s also trumped by being able to prevail over others as an elected President. But he’s not the only one who pulls the strings of governing, there is a whole Congress of people involved who assist in determining policies, legislation ……
YOU can triumph over Trump by playing YOUR trump card.
