The Hurricane Trump is visiting the Hurricane Harvey, to view the devastation both have caused. Ironic, isn’t it. This talk continued fleshing out the metaphor of the Mind as a hurricane with a name, Ed Conley, is mine. But when we begin the shift or the evolution of the opaque eye that is ME to the Eye of Awareness, that is my true eye, the old hurricane of Me begins to take on its destructive nature, and when stress and irritation and anger take over my mind, I can say…Oh, Harvey is back. I an not that! And when we can name our old hurricane, our old Story of Me, we are not that because we are not what we name. We are the creator of what we name, but by naming something we have control over it.
Notice how Trump Hurricane used that truth in his debates. He named his opposition hurricanes and by naming them diluted their strength. You can do this to your own hurricane. Carl Jung calls this Me Hurricane the Shadow.
But the true Eye of the You is God (not a thing called God but you as God. But not you as a thing, again because of the mind’s compulsion to name everything as a thing, even yourself. That is the ignorance, the warm ocean that creates the conditions for the hurricane called ME.
We have to see the Game. The Game of our Western Culture that conditions us to name ourselves as a solid thing in time. Now we are that, but the problem is that the map does not allow for a greater dimension, a vertical dimension, a clear peaceful Eye that is our true source. We have to discover IT!
But as Hurricane Trump readies to visit Hurricane Harvey, know that with the destruction new growth always comes. With death, new life. With Trump, a new America —after we clean up what he left behind.
