Dealing with adversity, whether it's political or physical, cultural or personal, is a great opportunity to understand that creation begins and ends with each of us as individuals, in the moment point... in the now.
We get the chance to put into practice everything we have learned about staying present, about not indulging in negativity, about avoiding "us vs. them" thinking. We get to experience immediately how much worse our lives become when we indulge negative emotion.
We get to be, in our own little worlds, the change we wish to see. It's not by action from the top down that change happens. It's by vibration from the bottom up.
Look away from the external manifestations, to which we have contributed, and into your own heart. That's the only place that matters. It's how your new world will be created.
Act from the impulses you receive in the silence of your own Being... not from the impulses coming at you from anyone else or anywhere else.
Come back home to the safety of the present moment. Let go of all the stories about the future and past. Create a qualitatively clear, trusting, loving, joyous present. That will take care of the future.
