I think most of America (and the rest of the world for that matter) were stunned at the outcome of our U.S. election. People I’ve spoken to range in their response from ecstatic and hopeful to angry and depressed. This morning, I realized that in either case, our reactions come from the deep love we share for this country. But for those who may be in the latter category, I offer a few thoughts.
First of all, the way this election turned out – is EXACTLY the way it turned out. This is true whether I like it or not. Now the question is what am I going to do about it?
My first answer is that as Commander and Chief of my own life, I am committed to being the very best version of Randy Ferguson that I can be. This includes helping as many human beings grow in their consciousness as I can in my lifetime. It means to live from a place of strength, wisdom and loving…rather than resentment, discouragement and passivity. It means rallying my resources to contribute to my sphere of influence, to this great nation and to some degree, the world.
Secondly, just as the results of this election blew away the political experts, I am so incredibly willing for great unexpected good to unfold. I pray that President-elect Trump and his cabinet are humbled by the awesome responsibility of their new positions. I pray that a republican congress is inspired to unify with the White House and Supreme Court in ways that make us proud.
From a spiritual perspective, there’s either a God or there’s not. If there’s a God, He/She/It is either all-powerful and all-knowing…or not. And if there is a God who is all-powerful and all-knowing, then this election turned out exactly the way it should for reasons we cannot now even imagine. This, I trust.
