OK, the election is over in America, and many of probably are more than a little surprised at the outcome (which is sorta like saying that someone is a little pregnant I suppose).
So now what do we do? Do we go further into our practice and still hope that one person, or a group of like-minded people, can make a difference in a world that is going in a different direction than we want? Or do we let go of even that hope and just do what we can and let go of the outcome? Do we push it away and seek escape through the usual means that we have used in the past? Do we move to another country? Does this motivate us to work more diligently within the system of governance, or push us to protest what has happened?
Hopefully someone can give me a clue, as I am not sure what to do. The outcome was an eventuality which most of us never expected, and I am not happy, which points to the suffering caused from expectations. This is foretelling, but I had awakened on the eve of the election yesterday morning w/ an alarming thought....I don't have a Plan B if this goes wrong. I still don't.
