Some soul-searching advice for Trump

Dear Mr. President,

I sometimes wonder if you have a relationship with your maker. I wonder if you ask that the Lord’s will be done every day and not your own. To just get out of your own way and allow the creative force to move through you, to be a clear channel of blessings to all that you meet and to those you serve.

You have so much positive and creative potential, Mr. President, but you do not nurture that still small voice, the inner you, the innate knowing that will remind you we are all here to serve the least among us and to strive to be worthy of and companionable to the creator. That is the goal. And the blessings roll forth and that is the gift. It’s a reciprocal relationship with the most high.

It is no small task to humble oneself before the infinite one or anyone, to subdue one’s personal will and choose to be divinely guided and serve for the greater good. But that is exactly what we, children of God, us humans need to integrate into our lives. Like oxygen, we need to be reliant on the guidance from spirit, which is our ground.

While I am concerned about your lack of empathy and insight and support for our vibrant and culturally diverse nation, it makes me sad that you do not value and seek to know your true self, the one you’re not letting come out to play and the one that has great depths of untapped potential. Please, let ‘em out!

When one’s time is done on this earth, Mr. President, and we stand before the Lord to take an accounting of our thoughts and deeds, we will be presented with the question, “How have you served”? Please consider this and start preparing, one good thought and deed at a time.

Lisa DiNardo
