Could President Donald Trump be part of God’s spiritual plan for this planet?

To the readers of MaryElizabethSings:

My first analysis was posted on Maureen Downey’s “Get Schooled” blog on the evening of January 19, 2017. It is below:

Donald Trump has shown me that he is a man with a corrupted soul. I will not be watching his inaugural tomorrow nor his celebrations, thereafter. I try to keep as much corruption from my spirit as possible. I will walk my granddog in the park, instead, and feel much more refreshed and rejuvenated than if I watched Donald Trump’s inaugural ceremony on television.

I have a good memory. Donald Trump’s actions and words, which were so destructive and divisive to our nation throughout the Republican primaries and general election, can never be forgotten. He owes this nation an apology for what he has done to wreak havoc in the emotional lives of so many Americans, and if he does not check himself, I have no doubt that he will, also, be wreaking havoc in our physical lives.

However, everyone is able to be redeemed, and I hope he finds redemption after he seeks penance.

In the meantime for the readers of this blog, I offer my reflections on this election from a spiritual perspective, as I have given its meaning thought, below:

MLK: “We will either learn to exist together as brothers and sisters or we will die together as fools.”

Most people never reach the higher consciousness of King. I hope that it is not too late for us to see that. As a matter of hope, God does work in mysterious ways. As much as I disliked the hierarchical and macho vision of George W. Bush, I can see how God may have used the erratic Bush to open the problems in the authoritarian Middle East to become humankind’s problem.

Likewise, I can see that it might be within God’s plan to use the erratic Trump to bring the darker elements in us all up to the light to have those darker elements (dictatorship/hierarchy) in our natures to be worked out to the (en)light(enment) of democracy and egalitarianism in our individual spirits and in our collective consciousness. Only God can put this together through all of us on Earth. Otherwise, we will all destroy our planet and ourselves, equally well.
================================================

Please, also, read my response, below, to another poster’s remarks on Jay Bookman’s blog entry of January 8, 2017, to comprehend how I view God’s possible spiritual plan in the election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States. Link to Bookman’s blog: http://jaybookman.blog.myajc.com/2017/01/07/opinion-were-missing-something-big-in-the-trump-putin-relationship/
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

My thoughts below, summarized: The “something big” that Putin and Trump have in common is a valuing of a hierarchical consciousness, which this nation has opposed from its beginnings. Imo, both Putin and Trump are on the wrong track in their value systems but, through God’s grace, Trump and Putin (and all of us together) may work back to seeing the value of egalitarianism, or the belief in the inherent dignity of every human being, aside from his/her wealth, and his/her inherent right to personal liberty, as a result.
========================================================

The “something big,” that we are missing in the relationship between Putin and Trump, as I see it, is the following. (I answered my thoughts on this in response to another poster’s thinking):

———————————————–

The other poster’s thoughts, essentially: “How rich is Vladimir Putin? . . . .

What was that Michelle said? When they go low, we go high. Sounds good in theory, but it’s hard to go high when you’ve just been kicked in the groin.”

—————————————–

Mary Elizabeth (edited for clarity): “What you have just described, as I see it, is the ever present dilemma of self-survival (survival of the fittest) vs. survival of the species as a whole which entails self-sacrifice to some degree when promoting the common good.

Yes, it is hard to go high when others go low, but nothing of value is easy to come by. We are going, eventually, to have to choose between an egalitarian world (which values the humanity in every person as well as personal liberty) or a hierarchical world (which values personal wealth and status more than anything else).

When we come to see ourselves, with conviction, on this small planet, relatively alone together in this enormous universe, we will better be able to see the value of egalitarianism over hierarchy.

MLK: “We will either learn to exist together as brothers and sisters or we will die together as fools.”

Most people never reach the higher consciousness of King. I hope that it is not too late for us to see that. As a matter of hope, God does work in mysterious ways. As much as I disliked the hierarchical and macho vision of George W. Bush, I can see how God may have used the erratic Bush to open the problems in the authoritarian Middle East to become humankind’s problem.

Likewise, I can see that it might be within God’s plan to use the erratic Trump to bring the darker elements in us all up to the light to have those darker elements (dictatorship/hierarchy) in our natures become forced to be worked out to the (en)light(enment) of democracy and egalitarianism in our individual spirits and in our collective consciousness in our world. Only God can put this together through all of us on Earth. Otherwise, we will all destroy our planet and ourselves, equally well.

    The world has had a lot of problems and failures because it is dominated by bad ideas. All these problems and failures lead some people to conclude that only “God” can save the world. But there is no “God”. What can save the world is better ideas. Ayn Rand has provided us with the better ideas we need. Sooner or later, her ideas will save the world. What is uncertain is whether her ideas will be understood, accepted, and implemented in time to save our current civilization, or whether people will have to endure another Dark Age and wait for the next civilization.
