We've seen this happening in our recent election and around the world. It is particularly distressing to us as Americans because we have not experienced here the horrors that Hitler brought into this world, horrors that changed the mindset around the globe after two world wars. It is very possible that our president-elect is yet another example of someone who represents the frantic, over-the-top effort of the Darkness to keep the Light in check.
If we continue to allow our emotions to be invested in reactions to the Darkness in whatever form it takes, we will be aiding their effort. Our emotions are energy. The world is energy. Let us not invest our energies in their efforts. I know this is a difficult concept because so many of the things that are happening and are proposed create fear. For those who are guided by scripture, recall Job's words that what he feared had come upon him. He added negative energy to the thing he feared until its level of energy made it possible for it to manifest in his world. The same will be true for us. Regardless of what is happening out there, we have to have faith in the high road, however you define this. Even those who do not believe in a Higher Power must trust in the power of good over evil.
After struggling to separate myself from the events of recent months, I have come to believe that these circumstances have the possibility of restructuring (perhaps through desperate times) how we treat each other, how much we begin to recognize the humanity in everyone regardless of the outer differences or inner beliefs. This could well herald a portentous time in our timeline. The outcome may well depend on how tightly those of us who believe in good, in the Light, hold to our beliefs.
