"Character is what you do when nobody's watching. This is Trump, sober, mid-day, with someone he barely knows, while wearing a mic." - @johnavlon
A year and a half ago I had a divine revelation; "When I see the divinity I am, I see the divinity within others", I shared this with a community of friends because for me, as a man, it was a moment of transformation. It was at that time that I began to see women as the strong divine beings they were. I expanded or raised my consciousness from the lower vibration of before, where I saw a women merely as objects.
Realize, I am married. This changed my view of my wife and changed my marriage. I apologized to her. I have women friends. This changed my view of those friendships. I apologized to them. I came to realize the most sacred thing I could be for these women in my life, was a safe man. A man who worked to be worthy of their trust. A man who held a safe space and allowed them to be at peace with who they were without risk or judgment. Years prior I would have never really thought this was possible. This moved me.
I have been around the block; I have hung out with guys and had, and participated in, "locker room talk". I suppose I participated in those conversations because I didn't know any better at the time. I didn't see myself as much, so I didn't see others as much either. I participated in these conversations, in these views because I was unaware and unconscious of who and what I "really" was. I was internally lost and disconnected from my own truest self.
Once I discovered "Me", once I changed the "position" of the platform from which I created my reality, I changed my reality.
Once I raised "my" platform up, by getting to know myself truest self through inner-work and self-discovery, meditation and contemplation, I saw others as the divine beings they are.
I understand Donald Trump. I do not condone him in any way. People will read this I am sure and disagree with my view, feeling that poor Donald got caught talking the way guys talk when girls aren't around. I pity them. There may even be women who feel this behavior is ok based on their view of themselves. I have compassion for them too, pity. I have never been as arrogant and narcissistic as Donald Trump, but It is through my own experience that I can have compassion for him, because I know how lost he really is. I was lost too. Deep down inside the light he shines on himself is just as dim as the light he shines on others, on our mothers, wives, daughters and sisters. I feel this is where his narcissism stems, from his attempt to alleviate the misery he has of self.
Donald is embodying what he knows to be true about himself. He is in pain and his actions show this. There is true misery there. True suffering. For those that agree with him, I can, we can, see your true suffering too. It is displayed so clearly with your reactions of anger.
Most likely he will be back to work through this again in another life. I wish him the best.
My you be blessed to see the divinity that you are. May you be blessed with the awareness to speak and act from your highest form of self. May you be blessed with the strength to endure your path to You. It take courage. It takes humility. May you be blessed with all it takes.
