A Prayer for and to Humanity
Dear Humanity, and I am addressing ALL OF YOU, rich, poor or somewhere in between, religious or not so much, all colors of the rainbow, that includes LBGTQ, and every shade of skin-color. If you breathe and share this earth with the rest of us....this is for you.
I pray that you find the wisdom, and the energy to wake-up in time. If you already consider yourself to be 'woke', then you need to get busy now helping others to get there. Now!
I pray that you see the Light...and that this experience gives you the insight to know that we are at a cross-roads, perhaps the most critical one in our species' history.
If we turn down the road that Donald Trump wants us to.....we will not only render our democracy inoperable and useless, but we will also bring on a vast maelstrom of pain and suffering. And, it won't be just the immigrants and other people of color who suffer; it will be across the spectrum. There will be plenty to go around. The path this megalomaniac is trying to usher us down is the path of ultimate pain....the agony of isolation and hatred, violence and selfishness....the path of GREED, i.e. "...sucks to be you," as Ayn Rand would proffer.
I pray that all Human Beings discover a clarity of vision and insight that will cause them to see what is really happening...to our society, to the environment, to the hopes of future generations, and to all of the other species who have the dire misfortune to share the planet..........with us.
I pray that, as a society, we learn to begin treating all human beings and all sentient species with kindness and caring.....with the RESPECT that is due all living creatures, and the planet herself.
I pray that we do not have to go through the hell-fires of continued ignorance and stupidity to learn the simple lesson in front of us: love and harmony can heal and deepen the value of our lives. Hate and an absence of compassion will create only pain and suffering. No other outcome is possible with them in place.
These are simple yet undeniable truths.
I pray that the Americans who think Donald J. Trump is a decent human being who will lead us to the best possible future.....WAKE-UP!!! Any fundamental clarity of mind blatantly exposes the truth: that he is a hateful, sadistic, dishonest, dishonorable and cruel troglodyte, interested only in himself and accumulating as much wealth as he can get his grubby little hands on. It's right there for all to see....but, without openness in one's Heart, it remains invisible.
I pray that all Humans arrive at the conclusion that we need to pull together....not to continue pulling apart. If we fail to do so, we will not only guarantee and hasten our own extinction, but we will create a nightmare scenario of going down in flames as we do so. The pain of hating and hurting will become an overwhelming and excruciating closed feed-back loop.
I pray that ordinary people will rise to commit extraordinary acts of kindness and illumination. We already have examples of how this can be done with power and grace: Malala Yousafzai, Greta Thunberg and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, among others, are like stars twinkling in the night sky, leading the way towards a society where hatred and violence are unnecessary and even obsolescent.
I pray that all people who have adopted hatred of others, willingness to commit violence, and a general selfishness that excludes caring for or helping other less fortunate souls....will receive a psychic jolt that will cause them to WAKE-UP....and begin to function like decent human beings, instead of like hateful and sadistic animals, in the manner of their sicko leader, The Orange Fool.
