There is Hope! The Hidden Gem behind the US Election
As I contemplated the outcome of the US Election, moving beyond shock, a voice of wisdom stepped in to remind me that everything happens for a reason. Albeit, we may not see the logic of any occurrence right away, be comforted to know that the universe knows what it needs. Mr. Trump’s victory will be short-lived (4 years is not a long time in the history of change). By the time the next presidential election rolls around, he would have completely decimated the Republican Party. All the Houses will be Republican during this period. In order to cleanse the ugly, horrifying underbelly that we had so carefully tucked away in America, it has to float to the top. Foam, grime, grizzly matter are now completely visible. We will stick together and pray, and cleanse and heal. We will march inwards quietly like the dawn stepping into the day. We will open our heart to the universe and ask for guidance. We will not allow hatred, angst, flight, fight, fear and force -our reptilian brain to take over our thinking. We will meet the dark bravely, with open arms so that the light we exude becomes so bright that it vanquishes the detritus of darkness.
Let us chant this Vedic Peace Prayer
Oṃ saha nāv avatu
saha nau bhunaktu
saha vīryaṃ karavāvahai
tejasvi nāv adhītam astu
mā vidviṣāvahai |
Om śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ ||
Om! May He protect us both together; may He nourish us both together;
May we work conjointly with great energy,
May our understanding be vigorous and effective;
May we not mutually dispute (or may we not hate any).
Om! Let there be peace in me
Let there be peace in my environment
Let there be peace in the forces that act on me.
