Woman Empowerment ~ So After a Huge DNC Loss and a New Trump Win ~ What the Dali Llama says we Americans can do.
This week, after a Trump win, we see people going through the 5 stages of mourning as one announcer said.
We also hear women wailing because she didn't become our first Madame President, and also celebrities backling HER and after she lost, telling their fans that they are moving to Canada, and the list of grieffer complaints go on and on.
We see students marching in the streets in larger cities as we see all kinds or uncertainty that lies ahead.
In fact, I received an invitation in an pop up to give the agency my email address to tell me the days and meeting times.
However, not being an extremist myself, I did not take them up to march. l also read in the paper where organizers were being paid $1500 potentially by a Communist sympathizer George Soros a week, to lead marches throughout many American cities. In fact, the ads were said to be placed in Craig's List if any radicals are interested. Sounds like democracy in its purist form?
We also see the Democrat Party of the Obama Administration crushed and almost burned.
Who is going to lead us again librals say; is the message on the street. Surely it is not the DONALD!
We further, hear pundits and the press in uncontrollable grief, even going through withdrawals, because they and everyone was else through the Polls believed SHE was ahead and would win, and the people were with HER, but their favorite, Hillary Clinton still wasn't elected.
So today, the DaliLlama has come forward to express his heart felt condolences not only to the US, but this revolution towards the right, that is going on in England with BREXIT, and many other Northern European Countries did the same with electing reactionary governments.
What the Dali Llama might say about Trump and his policies might surprise you.
“Europe, for example Germany, cannot become an Arab country,” he added with a laugh, the daily reported. “Germany is Germany."
The Dalai Lama added that “from a moral point of view too, I think that the refugees should only be admitted temporarily”.
“The goal should be that they return and help rebuild their countries.”
Many might not see his wisdom right way. But he does as an observer have a long run perspective.
But what is most important is what he suggests to America and the West to learn something from what happened and become better off from this event in the future. So I wish to share his sentiments.
The Dali Llama feels that to get quicker to mourning stage 5 he has an idea he is sharing with the West, to help us further our sense of betterment. I wish to share today his prescription so we may all put away our anger as he suggests, and replace it with a more conciliatory tone which I will share.
So what can we do? The Dalai Lama suggests two approaches.
The first is personal. “We should start each day by consciously asking ourselves, ‘What can I do today to appreciate the gifts that others offer me?’ … Each of us has the responsibility to make this a habit.” Put in simpler terms, we need to more consciously and regularly let others around us know how much we value them, especially when they may doubt it themselves.
Second create a more compassionate society.
On a systemic level, the Dalai Lama calls for a “compassionate society” in which there are “a wealth of opportunities for meaningful work, so that everyone who is capable of contributing can do so. A compassionate society must provide children with education and training that enriches their lives, both with greater ethical understanding and with practical skills that can lead to economic security and inner peace. A compassionate society must protect the vulnerable while ensuring that these policies do not trap people in misery and dependence.”
One outcome of the upward redistribution of wealth in the U.S that’s occurred since the 1970s, is that those who haven’t benefited from it are reduced to fighting among themselves for what’s left over. It’s a deadly formula for an inevitable escalation of anger and conflict among the less privileged. This means that the justification for a compassionate society isn’t just moral. It’s the only practical solution to an unsustainable and cruel cycle of anger and despair."
My idea in adding this presentation is simply this. No matter what is the circumstances that lie ahead, we can always move ahead, if we can keep the right perspective.
The Dali Llama's inspirational message is a wise one, and one we can embrace in hopes of moving America ahead.
