While there is a lot of upset regarding the new president elect the most important factor (no matter if you voted for or against him) is that we don’t allow these results to further divide us from our fellow human. More than anything this election has reminded me how critical it is to accept and love everyone equally and that there are many more qualities that we each share than which separate us, for example, the desire for safety, security, jobs and other basic human rights. If you are deeply triggered by this election be sure to take care of yourself, seek out community and engage in body/mind practice to help reconnect to your strength, love and purpose. Then be sure to put your positive energy to good use by actively and intelligently standing up for what you believe in. As Gandhi said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world”. At the very least, this election is mobilizing forces inside many of us to a degree which we had never accessed before. Let’s just be sure to use them in a loving, respectful and humanizing way. At the end of the day, we are all in this together.
