Elections, a blessing in disguise?


Elections USA

Until now I steered away from anything to do with this. I don’t live in the US but have a lot of new (online) friends that do, so I have seen their struggle. This couldn’t have been easy. Especially the people I am attracted to must feel defeated right now.

But yes, the unthinkable happened, or is happening. Donald Trump will win the election. That’s it. The world is ending. It’s over. Done. Humanity is f*cked. I feel the hate, anger, frustration, fear, defeat, sadness. Will it divide the US? Who knows.

The general energy the world is sending out to the US right now is terrible. I have come to know many Americans as wonderful loving people. Something I thought I would never admit, just because I only knew America from television and film. And thought they were all loud mouthed air heads. Kind of like Trump 😉 But this is really not the case. It’s all about the not knowing….

But is it really over?

What if we think about this another way? As a “blessing in disguise”?

What if, people who are more like me did not vote at all. Because they felt they had no choice. I would not have gone voting, as the things that matter to me the most, nature, animals, environment, weren’t very clear on both agendas. But maybe I would have voted for Clinton, because then maybe my favourite idealist Bernie would have had some influence…. I haven’t voted for years in my own country, simply because I no longer believe that politicians in general have the best interest at heart for the people.

The president is kind of like a puppet, the PR person for the whole government. I really thought Obama was something else (and I still do as a person), but in the end, all the promises they make? Hard to keep. The only danger with Trump is that if he doesn’t get his way he might go into a fit like little children do….

Is it bad for the world? Really? Us=the world? I think not. That’s kind of arrogant to say. Maybe it’s bad for the US. Maybe even not. What if other countries are like, ok, time to stand on our own feet and no longer be an US groupie….

Universally: what if we see this like the last cramps of the patriarchal system. To hold on to old systems and beliefs. People like Mr Trump are gaining ground everywhere! He is not the only one. Why? What if it’s a test. To see if we are ready for this new paradigm? Living from the heart? Are you able to give love and compassion to anyone? Even the ones like Mr Trump?

The people in general are giving out a signal by voting for him or not voting for any candidate because they felt they didn’t have a choice. No matter the outcome, this signal must be addressed. This is a symptom of our diseased society. It’s time to look at the underlying problems going in. Loss of a feeling of community, the difference between classes. The people who blindly follow people like Mr Trump, or on the other side maybe even spiritual gurus, they play the blame game. They are the ones that don’t take responsibility for their own lives and choices, they act like victims. People like Trump, Le Penn, our own Wilders, they know how to speak to those people. Basically they are excellent at marketing, because they see the gap. And they promise to make it better for you. Not with you. For you. Come here. Daddy will take care of everything. Sit back and relax. You don’t have to do anything. I will fix it. The people don’t see that this most of the time is a “quick” fix. They don’t oversee the long-term effects, and more important, the underlying feeling of void and emptiness isn’t addressed. It’s like taking drugs, or alcohol. Underneath the wound will fester on. But for now, they have put a band-aid on it for them.

What if this has a what I call Cesar Milan effect. People with dogs will all know who that is. I really don’t like him very much, or how he handles dogs. It doesn’t mean he doesn’t believe in what he does. I’ve seen him in interviews and he just doesn’t know any better. And he is also a quick-fix giver. People like that. Not much work put in, just overpower and put a band-aid on it. We gave him the power. We let him grow. But…. On the other hand, the dog behaviour specialists and trainers that used other methods, they united, made more and more people aware there is another way. Most of them even not by putting down Cesar, but by showing the people the other way! Maybe this whole Trump thing will give the people who were lurking in the shadows the courage to stand up for what they believe in, and join forces in a positive way.

Maybe it’s all a test to see how strong the power of positive thinking, law of attraction, love really is. I have seen lots of people sending their condolences to the US, it’s almost like a grieving process. But…. What if we started over showering Mr Trump with love, send him massive healing and love, break down the wall around his heart before he starts building them in real life. What if we could show that the collective way of doing this is stronger than negativity and hate. Let’s show that the power of the heart will change the world. And are you ready to fully embrace the shadow side? I feel that people like Trump are getting stronger just because the people who live from a place of love deny their shadow sides. And isn’t it the best test ever if you can show as much love and compassion to the haters, to the “dark ones”, as you would to like-minded people? People you love. Maybe it is even so, that these “dark ones” even need your love and compassion more. Let’s show that the power of the heart will change the world.

Don’t get me wrong. I dislike the man, always have. But it’s not about him really. Something bigger is going on. And yes, you can just sit still and trust that “this is just as it is supposed to be”. Or you can take action. And not by taking up arms or  and blocking each other on Facebook. But by showing love and compassion towards each other. Show real interest, find out why someone has certain ideas. Start building a community based on understanding, respect and love. Share what you have abundance of. If that is material of not, share.

Don’t go along in this negative, fear based, panicky energy. Let’s keep sending love. And I know, even though he is a “bad thing” for the things I stand for, I have just put him in a blanket of love and approached this from a whole different perspective.

I wish all of you, either in the US or elsewhere, the strength and wisdom to deal with this, but don’t feel defeated….

Love and light,

Diana

Ps. there is something with these numbers….. 9-11, 11-9?? Big changes and shifts…. We notate November 9th as 9-11 in our country…. Weird right? I know 9 is about endings and new beginnings, and it’s also a 9 year this year…. Mmmm…..

Ps 2: this too shall pass 😉 Remember Rome, Napoleon, The German Reich… in the end it will crumble and fall….

Back!


It’s been a long time since I did some blogging. With studies finally finished I hope to get back to writing, every now and then. Setting up my own practice also takes time, but I want to do it the way it feels right for me, so on my own time 🙂 Lots has been going on these last 2 years, also inside of me.

I started with cleaning up this blog, and will ad some more and new links soon. The music blog I participated in has changed and the collaboration on it has come to an end, so all the reblogs I did on here didn’t work anymore. I will definitely share some of my favourite music on here from now on 🙂

That’s it for now, hope to do some writing and reading again soon!

Love and light,

Diana

Mooi…. (Dutch only….)


Er moeten mensen zijn
die zonnen aansteken,
voordat de wereld verregent.

Mensen die zomervliegers oplaten
als het ijzig wintert,
en die confetti strooien
tussen de sneeuwvlokken.

Die mensen moeten er zijn.

Er moeten mensen zijn
die aan de uitgang van het kerkhof
ijsjes verkopen,
en op de puinhopen
mondharmonika spelen.

Er moeten mensen zijn,
die op hun stoelen gaan staan,
om sterren op te hangen
in de mist.

Die lente maken
van gevallen bladeren,
en van gevallen schaduw,
licht.

Er moeten mensen zijn,
die ons verwarmen
en die in een wolkenloze hemel
toch in de wolken zijn
zo hoog
ze springen touwtje
langs de regenboog
als iemand heeft gezegd:
kom maar in mijn armen

Bij dat soort mensen wil ik horen…

Die op het tuinfeest in de regen BLIJVEN dansen
ook als de muzikanten al naar huis zijn gegaan

Er moeten mensen zijn
die op het grijze asfalt
in grote witte letters
LIEFDE verven

Mensen die namen kerven
in een boom
vol rijpe vruchten
omdat er zoveel anderen zijn
die voor de vlinders vluchten
en stenen gooien
naar het eerste lenteblauw
omdat ze bang zijn
voor de bloemen
en bang zijn voor:
“ik hou van jou”

Ja,
er moeten mensen zijn
met tranen
als zilveren kralen
die stralen in het donker
en de morgen groeten
als het daglicht binnenkomt
op kousenvoeten

Weet je,
er moeten mensen zijn,
die bellen blazen
en weten van geen tijd
die zich kinderlijk verbazen
over iets wat barst
van mooïgheid

Ze roepen van de daken
dat er liefde is
en wonder
als al die anderen schreeuwen:
“alles heeft geen zin”
dan blijven zij roepen:
“neen, de wereld gaat niet onder”
en zij zien in ieder einde
weer een nieuw begin

Zij zijn een beetje clown,
eerst het hart
en dan het verstand
en ze schrijven met hun paraplu
“i love you” in het zand
omdat ze zo gigantisch
in het leven opgaan

en vallen
en vallen
en vallen

en OPSTAAN

Bij dát soort mensen wil ik horen
die op het tuinfeest in de regen BLIJVEN dansen
ook als de muzikanten al naar huis zijn gegaan
de muziek gaat DOOR
de muziek gaat DOOR
en DOOR…

(door Toon Hermans)

Blogging?


This is a new adventure for me. Writing blogs! Giving you a little peek into what’s going on inside my head. It’s a mess in there so maybe sometimes you aren’t able to follow. That’s ok. I can’t either 🙂

The next days I will try to find out how this all works and then I will cover you in useless crap about what’s driving me nuts everyday. What keeps me going. What keeps me sane or just drives me insane. About my passions, my deepest hopes, my darkest corners. That is…. if you are interested ofcourse.

So, this is it for now. I will be back to bother you later on!
