With reference to yesterday’s post regarding possible 4D chess . . . The following comment, sent to my email address, provoked me. As well it should have. Grateful.
This comment comes from Sue M, who was a friend of my deceased sister Mary, in Seattle. I’ve always taken Sue’s views with a grain of salt, since I find her attitude unreservedly cynical and critical, and prefer to remain open-minded, unknowing, though of course having tendencies and preferences — in my case, aligned with my openness to an organically evolving, flowering future rather than continuing to feel trapped in a dead-end mechanism that has imprisoned humanity for centuries. Even so, this particular comment from Sue did catch my attention. So thank you!
Please consider this point of view (below) on QAnon.
IMO Caitlin nails the problem with Trump followers belief
that T will take care of everything because QAnon said so.
It makes me wonder if Catholicism (having “faith” in”father” and Jesus)
still affects you more than you will admit. IMO it isn’t
working out very well for Catholic church followers and
it won’t work out well for QAnon worshipers–or the rest of us–either.
Before I get to the post she recommends me reading, let me say here that I let go of the judgmental “god” of Catholicism back in my 20s, and that this led to an ideological standoff with my archetypally patriarchal father for 30 years. However, he and I did finally manage to dissolve our struggle. How? We made an agreement to move from our minds into our hearts. That herculean task took a number of more years. But: we were both successful — something for which I am profoundly grateful.
Now, as to whether or not I have projected onto Trump, or any authority figure, that same early childhood need for a strong father figure, I don’t really think so, as, to me, the primary question is, as Caitlin points out in her extremely provocative post, Is Donald Trump a good man? She doesn’t think so. Nor does Sue M, apparently. I do. At least 51%! (See below.) Plus, I am very aware that the deep state prison we all find ourselves in requires an immense struggle, with many players, and many years, to transform.
Meanwhile, I find it extremely valuable to see each and every human being as first of all, a suffering soul, partially blind, learning how to see via the lessons life offers. Some of those lessons require many years, even decades, to even recognize, much less learn. Which is why wisdom tends to be a feature of those who grow old while consciously processing their experiences over time.
Even so, a tiny percentage of souls seem to be dedicated only, as the Law of One would put it, to “service-to-self;” a vastly greater number are at least 51% “service to others.” And I would cerrtainly land Donald J. Trump, as well as most people I both know and don’t know, in that latter category.
So, here’s the post Sue M was referring to, from Caitlin Johnstone, who is a powerful writer. Very much admire that aspect of her production, though I find her intensely superior, dogmatic attitude distasteful.
BTW: Johnstone says we all need to get out in the streets to protest Assange’s extradition. I’d say that at least I, for one, while attempting to remain clear-eyed and balanced regarding all sorts of injustices, need to continue to focus my own creative efforts on providing one template that can help transform this ravaged, poisoned planet into a world of abundance for all.
