The Second Coming
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity. (first half)
Trump as President is the Center, and the center is not holding. Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world. When our personal center (our ego ) cannot hold, we have a nervous breakdown, commit suicide, or become a shooter. Violence is a failed way to restore center. But the President is the National Center. He gives America’s center flesh and blood through his sacrifice of his personal power for the Office. Trump never made that sacrifice. He kept his personal power. And now…..the gathering fear is that Trump has given his sacred center, Our sacred center, to Putin. This is a psychological 9/11. This can’t be happening.
The gamut goes from certainty that Trump is compromised to the absolute trust the Trump is not a puppet:. “Just let Trump be president.” But the real crisis is in our own personal trust. Who do I trust? Do I trust what I see with my own eyes or do I trust what someone else tells me I have just seen? As the gap increases between wheat I see, the actual behavior of Trump, and what I’m told he is doing or did, the greater that gap the greater the tension if feel in my own center, my own self. Who do I trust? Am I being dumped? Am I being conned? No….that is not possible because I believed in Trump with my whole heart…but my mind is saying…wait..what’s going on here. Doubt is the enemy of certainty and the security of certainty. So we double down on the story we are told to keep the growing doubt out.
America is in a spiritual crisis, not a political crisis. The Second Coming will be the America that is born out of this chaos.
