This is the thinking that originally spurred me toward participating in the election process in the only way available to me other than voting, which was Facebook. As is my right, I saw, and still do see, Donald Trump as a dangerous and unstable human being, who does not have the qualifications or the temperament to hold the highest office in this country and represent us around the world.
During the campaigning, the teacher in me felt compelled to use my social media timelines as a platform to display information from outside sources that those who do not like to do research might fail to see and/or read. Unfortunately, the vitriol being displayed on social media, which shouldn't have surprised me, started to seep into my own nature. Upon analyzing my own reactions to these vile comments, I realized that my lifelong aversion to bullies was driving me to stop Trump and to react to such bullying by others on Facebook. At first I simply began by deleting such things from my personal timeline and refrained from getting involved in most, but sadly not all, threads, but that wasn't enough.
Now that the election is over, to be clear, I have not changed my mind about my analysis of Trump. He is definitely a user. However, I pulled myself back to an old proverb that I have applied in other environments many times over the years: A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still. With that in mind, I realized that I had done all I could in the social media arena, my most important contribution being that I voted for the person I felt would have safeguarded the future of all Americans.
As a person who believes strongly in the impact of vibrational energy, I cannot and will not let Trump and those in the political arena who are willing to take down this nation for the sake of their personal power taint my consciousness so badly that my energy unwittingly supports their cause. Therefore, I choose to return my energies to my chosen focus, writing on spiritual psychology and my novels, rather than rehashing the campaign or the past. I will stay vigilant as I mentioned in my last post. However, I must stay on the high road where my vibration can add to that of others to lift our nation upward. We must begin to fight for the values we want for America, not invest all our energies into fighting against the values we don't want. Fighting against those values is exactly how that level of energy grew during the last year and a half until it developed enough strength to win out in the election. We cannot continue along that same path and expect different results. That would be insane.
