Today’s “Meditations on Eckhart Tolle” quote: “Unless you know the basic mechanics behind the workings of the ego, you won’t recognize it, and it will trick you into identifying with it gain and again. This means it takes you over, an imposter pretending to be you.”
Lets talk Trump and the Alternative World view that is subjective and value dominated versus the older Objective world view that is facts and process dominated. Trump is First Person I am, but the playing field is Third Person IT
I hope you pick up on this talk because it brought some important insights to me in understanding our historical moment where Trump is like a hairball we can’t cough up. No matter what we do or don’t do, Trump is the Center. Good or bad attention doesn’t matter; Trump is the center of attention. Why is that?
We need a really wide angle lens to see what is happening to us, a lens that goes back to the beginning of the Modern age at the Enlightenment, an age that has reached its limits and is evolving into the Post modern age. The Industrial Age evolves into the Information Age….And when we are in transition, you have one foot in the old age and one in the new age, and neither age can understand the other. We are in-between the worm becoming the butterfly, so we are half worm and half butterfly, half crawling, half flying.
