Reading the book Radical Forgiveness (by Colin Tipping) again this morning, pages 278 – 281, I realized that I have been making the situation with the presidency and the Republican Regime and all of the fascist horrors they seem to be bringing down on us so quickly, I have been making it personal. Like I am the one who has to heal something in myself for it to be drained of its power. But I wonder if it’s National, or global?
The book keeps reiterating that you don’t need to know what the souls desire is behind the situation, why the situation has manifested, or what it’s trying to teach you. That asking why is a victim mentality question.
….But speculating on the possibilities of the idea that it might be something national, or global, feels helpful for me. It allows me to not beat up on myself, or put all of the burden on me to fix it, because I am just a part of a much larger group of souls, that chose to live during this time for a reason.
If I was able to speculate on what could be in the process of national or worldwide healing, what might it be?
Compassion? Cultivating empathy for others?
Treating people as commodities, or nothing more than tools of commerce?
A history of oppression (middle passage, Trail of Tears, Jim Crow, reproductive slavery) in the USA?
Moving beyond dictatorship to personal sovereignty?
Being forced to learn the divinity and spiritual truth of who we really are on a grand scale?
I’m really asking here.
We have created this, our souls have created this, in concert with one another for some magnificent transformation to be able to occur. So what might it be?
