Post-Erection Reading Wrist

 

First, read these words by Jack Kornfield.

When times are uncertain, difficult, fearful, full of change,
they become the perfect place to deepen the practice of awakening.

After viewing the elections….whatever your point of view,
Take time to quiet the mind and tend to the heart.
Then go out and look at the sky.

Remember vastness, there are seasons to all things,
gain and loss, praise and blame, expansion and contraction.
Learn from the trees.
Practice equanimity and steadiness.

Compassion

Then try to understand what happened.

How did a demagogue get elected president?

The working class was abandoned by the DNC long ago. They are a party of self-serving neo-liberals, who cater to the masters of mankind.

The DNC suppressed their own populist candidate because he wanted to upset their power structure. The working class, who have been getting the shaft for over 30 years, had nobody else to turn to.

Also, the US is full of guys like this:

trump-supporter


Compassion.

Happy Blackout Day

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.
~ Aristotle

Hey friends. Wikipedia’s down. Reddit’s down. A slew of other sites are down. You know why, and you know what to do about it.

But, think about the bigger picture. Why are we fighting tooth-and-nail against bills that should have never gotten this far? We all know the answer to that question.

Voting them out won’t solve anything. Those who are in: they’re golden. Go ahead, vote them out. That’s probably their plan. They keep their health insurance for life. Their careers as lobbyists and consultants are set. They have bigger fish to fry; bigger yachts to buy.

And there are plenty of tools, just like them, itching to slither their way onto the gravy-train of oppression.

Election reform is the only solution. Shrugging my shoulders and clicking around the Internet isn’t going to help now, is it?

What can I do? What can we do?

We all know the answer to that as well.

Peace,

J
