Donald Trump inspires me to look at my own shadow. Where is my bigotry, my fear, my hatred? How do I bring those shadow attributes to the light and confront them with understanding and a desire to heal?
He inspires me to ask what kind of community I want to live in and how can I contribute to creating that community? What gifts and talents can I bring to the table?
He inspires me to have compassion for those who are hurting and fearful and have a sense of ‘us’ and ‘them.’ And to have greater compassion for myself when I feel a sense of separation.
He inspires me to manage my focus and attention. Do I choose to focus on what I don’t want or what I want?
He inspires me to love and accept myself and others even more. How can I bring more love to every situation I encounter?
Right now, I can’t use the ‘P’ word before his name. So I will simply and affectionately call him Mr. T. Bless you, Mr. T. And bless each of us as stand together in love and acceptance.
