The Heart of 80 million Patriots are Broken By a Few Evil Overlords. What Happens When Evil Wins? Keep the Faith, God Providence Is In America

January 9th, 2021

Very painful to see what is happening here. The conservatives lost the senate, dems cheated again, and Trump will probably be out, unless he declares martial law. The dems pulled off the greatest crime in history. Stealing the presidency from 80 million people who love Trump – by a dedicated coup by corrupting our voting system. Trump has been the best – all time superb greatness for God – and the people of faith have been great, but many in the Republican party betrayed Trump. It’s shameful. Now they are taking away the ability to communicate, taking our voice away if they can, taking away freedoms, relentlessly trying to discourage the heart of the people. We the people can’t let them get away with it.

A patient told me the other day (as many have in varying ways over the years), ‘Why is my mother dying and suffering like this, she is such a good person, why would God do this’. I have addressed this question very well for a long time. But I feel like that, ‘Why did God allow evil to win, and take away from Trump and the people what he rightfully won’. Its painful, it’s not right, but I am not losing faith or anything. It’s just hard to understand why evil would get away with this. I keep the faith and trust in God.

Right now without the Trump movement in power the world just became a much more dangerous place. Deep state socialist in America, globalists around the world, and communists in China are trying to take over America and all the good, freedom and Godliness that she is about. But I believe God has a plan and we will keep up the good fight and prevail in the end.


But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7 Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes!” (Matthew 18: 5,6)
For peace of mind I find it invaluable to see God knows our will, and the love we have for him and our country. This is not an escape from reality for He still wants us to act on our will and do what we can. For instance, I do what I can to take action, I consistently donate to Trump movement, and conservatives fighting for justice, I let my voice be heard, share on forums and help to build people’s faith. In God We Trust.
On the contrary side, as the scripture above tells, its one thing to aline with evil forces, but to willfully recruit others into evil is crossing a terrible line, and this is what the dem leaders have done and are doing.
The dem leaders don’t represent or care an ounce about the people but serve an agenda that is nothing less than evil, and they will not change. History and spiritual principle confirms that; they are too far gone. They have shown over and over how completely dedicated they are to a destructive agenda. Some GOP leaders are like them, but they still care about appearances to a degree, the dem leaders don’t even care about appearances anymore. Keeping up appearances used to keep them in check to a degree but not anymore. Hard core Evil doesn’t change, but seeks deeper and deeper destruction. That is what we are up against. But, many of the regular people who don’t know what the ‘bought’ may change. It’s strange how many intelligent people support the dem leaders (who do and care nothing about them), and how they blindly hate Trump (who loves them). People I know here in the bay area fight for the dems, justify their actions; some people at work laugh about the election, delighting in thinking they humiliated Trump.
It is very disturbing, never thought America would come to this. How we Feel is part of it, because we have suffered real loss of something we most dearly love; it’s also an injustice, and we have to deal with the consequences of all this. Without fair elections that are just our country is not what it used to be. Painful to take in. Hopefully we can fight to get back to where we were.
In Lamentations (from the Bible) the response to deep suffering is modeled for us; the people wail with complaints at God, and wrestle with what God is doing, but they are taking their feelings to Him.
Lamentations shows how God is big enough to handle all our anger and despair, and that these feelings are safe with him God is not the cause of evil and never inflicts evil on anyone. Man is the cause of evil because he is in freedom; man’s freedom is in the balance between good and evil – for this is the only possible way a person can have self agency, an identity, sovereignty – to ‘become’ – to bond with God from himself. Freedom is the means of salvation and the cause of hell! Evil comes from a man’s capacity for selfishness and greed and hate.
The universe would quickly cease to exist if God were ever less than love – just as in a sun, as soon as it begins to produce iron in its core it is a matter of seconds that it will explode. It is the love and wisdom of God alone that creates and sustains the universe, if he is anything less….
To think God is the cause of evil inflames the negative and self-destructive impulses in the suffering person. Imagine telling someone who is struggling with the feeling that God is punishing them that God is the one who inflicts evil. If they really theologically believe that God is against them, then there is nothing that can help – self destructiveness is justified. Such a notion arises from external thinking. God never causes evil, but allows evil for the providential purpose of removing evil. The Lord is the redemptive force of love in our hearts and minds. He is the comforter; and His love is closest when we are most ill and suffering. We don’t see it with our physical eyes but we can feel it if we but seek it in humility. It is irrational, an (understandable) emotional reaction to blame God for the evil that happens. We can take all these feelings to Him. He wants what is real, and to process with us. God is good itself.

A Glimpse into the Nature of the Life and Ways of Angelic Wisdom, and the Lessons We Can Learn From It.

July 23rd, 2020


The wisdom of angels surpasses that of Man manifold for many reasons, but in this post, I would like to offer an insight into the psychology of angels that keeps them connected to the Lord, how our psychology is based in these principles, and the lessons we can learn from it in our life.

The wisdom of angels surpasses that of Man manifold for many reasons, but in this post, I would like to offer an insight into one of the reasons how the psychology of angels keeps them connected to the Lord, how our psychology is based in the principle, and the lessons we can learn from it in our life.
Swedenborg gives us a great clue into the psychological source of angelic wisdom and peace:
“As for the pictorial speech of the angels, anything whatever that is encountered is taken as an object, whether it be an affection, or an insight, or anything of that order; and by means of these, delicate displays are created. So the objects are realities apart from objects of the senses: such as an affection, an insight, a color. These objects then arrange themselves according to the subjects being thought about”. (Spiritual Experiences, 450).
This is so extraordinary because it allows angels to see clearly what is of themself, what is from others, and thus they can distinguish what God is teaching them with supreme clarity. We can do this to a degree in this world, but here things are muddled as to what is our own and what is from others. In human communication people project their own feelings and emotions, and we react to others emotions; thoughts and reactive emotions sick like mud and glue and cause confusion and annoyance. We easily take on other peoples thoughts and feelings, acting and reacting without knowing where it comes from. By being able to see an idea or feeling as an observable object one is not subject to it but can discern its source and draw from it with enthusiasm and skill for the sake of bonding with the Lord and others who have the same quality of love. If it is of some ill intent it is seen and rejected. Seeing thoughts and feelings as objects doesn’t mean one is ‘a cold distant intellectual ‘ (although it includes intellectual objectivity). It means not being hooked into emotional entanglement, but to see thoughts and feelings for what they; they see the use and origin of a thing and can relate to it from their own core receive the wonders of God in a wonderful way. To address the particulars of truth in ones life, to see and feel the real causes of suffering and of joy, pain dissolves and joy magnifies. It makes it so one does not have to react to the idea or feeling but can respond in a skillful way, and be very clear with their companions.
In hell it is the opposite. Hellish people are masters of hiding and the arts of deception and causing harm by getting into people heads and causing destruction to each other.
Our saving grace is we are all in relationship with the Lord from our core, and He works to keep His relationship clear with each individual, and He seeks not to allow others to obstruct this privy relationship.. This is important because it is the truth and it helps people ‘to keep their peace’. When Jesus is teaching His disciples and sends them out for the first time he tells them that if they enter a house and are accepted to then bless that house; but if they are thrown out He tells them to wipe the dust off their feet and keep their peace. It is important to not take on other people’s negative feelings. This is not easy, it is a common part of human nature to compare and be jealous, but this brings other peoples problems and feelings into one’s self which disturbs and disrupts. In the Bible when Peter tries to ask the resurrected Jesus why John was not going to die as a martyr as Peter was told that he would, Jesus says, “If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me.?” (John 21:22). Jesus teaches that by being in our own core, and receiving from Him we will receive all the good we can handle. We don’t need to compare to to others. (The above verse is particularly potent for those who know Swedenborg for Swedenborg reports that in heaven Peter failed to do this. He writes that Peter took the saying that he would have the keys of heaven literally and was jealous that he did not have the power he thought he would. This serves as a great warning to us to not let pride rule.)
C. S. Lewis makes this point of wisdom several times through the voice of Aslan. Aslan admonishes people to not stick their nose into lessons that are between him and the individual concerned.
Developmental psychology, pioneered by Robert Kegan’s, shows how important it is to be able to perceive the difference between ourself and others for the sake of caring about others. His work reveals the developmental process of discerning the difference between object and subject, that is, of what comes from within and what comes from without, and how this is the basis for growing into maturity. Psychologist call it differentiation. Kegan describes how the ability to discern between one’s own needs and those of others, and then to care an do for others, is the essential skill of maturity. He identifies five levels of consciousness based on this skill. At the higher levels, one is able to see whole systems operating within a person in a society, and, the ability to observe the difference between their own system and that of others. An example of this is a good therapist who knows their own system and can see the framework of others and the patterns in their life, and from this skillfully guide them through the problems. The highest level involves all of this and being able to be self revealing in deep intimacy with another, to see one another and reveal like this builds a deep love. Even this is probably rudimentary compared to angels but it gives us an idea of how the same principles are at work. The quote from Swedenborg at the beginning describes the same kind of idea except in a more advanced way.
Finally, Swedenborg describes that in heaven the angels are always facing toward the spiritual sun, in which is the Lord. This is not a saying but an actuality. No matter how they turn Angels are always facing toward the Lord, and thus their minds are not easily obstructed by others, or from their love to the Lord. This is possible because there is no time or space in the spiritual world and all is based on the affections of the heart. So no matter how an angel is turning and interacting with others they are oriented toward their ruling love, the deepest of which is the Lord. Love is the gravity that orients them, in fact gravity corresponds to love. This allows each angel to be of use and a blessing to each other.



Jesus, The Inner Teacher: The One Who Works The Transformation of Our Soul

February 13th, 2020

Getting one’s own sovereignty right internally helps transform things within us and thus in our life. It may or may not change things around us, but it allows us to see what is ours and what is not. Being able to see this is very important for then we are able to develop and retain our inner treasure. Jesus said, “if they do not receive you, then shake the dust off your feet – and KEEP YOUR PEACE”. This seems selfish to the outside, but it means being in the core self where our connection with God is, that’s the elixir that changes things from the inside. This takes internal homework – a lot of people don’t do it.
At some point we see Jesus is the inner teacher, the only inner teacher, others help from the outside. All others, including all angels, like us, have sin and hereditary evil, and cannot see or be what Jesus is. He is all loving, all peace, all wise – with knowledge of every particular process and change that we need. He went through them all for our sake and produced the path, the way, so He knows. He is the master of masters, the king of Kings, the hero of heroes.
We go through trials, temptations, fits of anxiety, fear and anger. All temptations produce anxiety by nature because the outcome is not known whether good or evil will win. But while we are deep in it, we who love God, part of us has an inner awareness, we keep the faith, and we come through to the other side. This is how He removes hereditary evil in us. He is closest to us during the trials of our life. It’s like giving birth, its hurts like a son-of-a-bitch, but in the end it produces life and great love. It is like riding a steep roller coaster, we know the vertical fall is coming and it’s going to be intense, but the level swing produces great joy.

“For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39

Two, Small but Telling, Real Life Examples of Life in Heaven.

January 19th, 2020

When we walk into a new house or room, consciously or unconsciously, one can tell  a lot about the person who owns it; we can usually tell if that room is a man’s or women’s. We observe this by the types of objects and their arrangements, by the colors and quality of presentation. We can also see a lot about the persons character and interests by the type of books there; we can tell by the decor, furniture, and useful objects indicating hobbies, moral or religious values. In heaven the indicators in a person’s dwelling are a hundred times more telling because everything there has direct correspondence to the state of a person’s mind and soul. In the spiritual world it is not even possible for anything to be in a persons home that does not have use toward, and correspond to the person’s ruling love and affections. In the spiritual world things in the environment come and go based on how they correspond to the persons desire and state of being at different times. Every color, every piece of furniture, or shape has correspondence to the person’s or couple’s soul. I give this example as an everyday glimpse into an angelic life.

Here is another example: when angels or good spirits enter a room for, say a concert, a church service, or social gathering, they know inwardly where they are to be seated, and cannot help but do so. To our natural mind this sounds like obligation or external pressure, but that is not the reason. In heaven this has to do with one’s internal use and purpose to the whole, and to know ones seat is felt as a supreme belonging in the whole. It is a consequence of ones quality of love and use to the community. This phenomenon is a manifestation of one of the great ruling principles of heaven, that is: ‘the more who enter heaven, the more complete it becomes’. Heaven is an immense diversity in harmony; the greater the number that enter, the more perfected is the harmony, and thus the heavenly joy. The angels are in true freedom, for true freedom is to do that which is good. This is obscure here, but it is very clear in the spiritual world. The more one is in harmony with the whole, the more one is in a profound self empowerment and spiritual intelligence. The more one is led by the Lord, the more you become your own. It is infernal freedom to do that which is self willed and evil. So the angels knowing where to sit is an act of fulfillment and harmony that brings great joy and peace. In contemplating this the earthly mind tends to see the situation I described as automated, but in reality heaven is utterly organic, fluid, creative, fresh, surprising, an expression of internal skill and ever increasing joy.

The Development of an Inner Sanctuary: Interpretation of Psalm 23

December 4th, 2019

Psalm 23

A psalm of David.

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
    he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
    for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,[a]
I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord


The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. The Lord Jesus is our guide and inner teacher, we are meant to be led by Him. He is the living Word and teaches us through the Word and by the Holy spirit, which is His presence. He teaches those who genuinely yearn for good in their life, church and country. The Lord and the life He gives restores our wholeness in spite of circumstances. The inner life He offers us is the greatest treasure, but we have to fight for it. The more we allow ourself to be led by the Lord the more we become our true self.

He makes me lie down in green pastures. The 23 Psalm is a lot about having an inner sanctuary. In love and faith to the Lord we can have a sense of inner peace. This is an inward resource that provides direction, and self-agency in spite of what problems may come. I am a hospice chaplain and hope to help others find this inner pasture as they pass the days in bed. One can see the kind of inner resources people have and I help them to develop their inner life as best I can. Green pastures represents spiritual nourishment; and the whole phrase means peace that comes after trials. In John in regard to pasture the Lord says, “I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture.  The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full”.

He leads me beside quiet waters. This also refers to inner sanctuary and the mercy the Lord gives to all who go through trails.

 He refreshes my soul. My sense of this is that for those who yearn for God, they receive an intimate love for Him, and with that the light of wisdom. I have often experienced that when I read the Word and seek to understand the scriptures, I feel a palpable light enter into my my mind and body and brings a sense of joy and purpose and relief from stress and anxiety. My soul feels refreshed in a spiritual way, very much like our mind and body does at the sight of a calm body of water, or at the sight of a flowing river in a green valley. God can be seen in nature, the innate moral yearnings of man, and in the Word.

Our psyche lets go and receives the Lord when we come into humility. True humility never remains unknown like a spring flower hidden within grass that releases its fragrance far and wide. Humility is the soul’s true beauty because beauty is the form of love. It makes it possible to find strength and rest unlike pride which is wearisome to the soul

He guides me along the right paths. In the spiritual world there are paths that lead to heaven or hell. In the world of spirits one is being constantly vastated either toward heaven or hell according to one’s own loves and inclinations. The Lord and his angels also walk with us in this world in the sense they are constantly trying to guide us to the heavenly path. Swedenborg writes that the ‘stone along the path’ spoken of in the Bible is a real place along the path that leads out of the world of spirits to heaven or to hell. Those who cannot see the stone in the path stumble on it and fall the wrong way. Those who can see and accept the guidance of the angels from their inner love are guided to their place in heaven. 

       This phrase also has to do with the way ‘paths’ are built in our psyche. Paths our built in our mind by the union of exercising our love and intelligence in union for a useful life accomplishment, whether that be big or small. The path is formed by exercising our skills and inner gifts from the love of being useful, and becomes a bond with God particularly when we realize the good we do comes from God. The path is laid when action is taken.

 For His name’s sake. By the word “Name” (including Jehovah, the Lord, and Jesus Christ), is not meant just the name of one person, but the whole infinite Kaleidoscope of truths and loves of which Jesus Christ is the source, and for which He is worshiped. The power in the Name of Jesus Christ is not in the mere name but in loving and understanding who He is and what he did for us. He redeemed everything by His supreme acts of love. The resurrection can be compared to the dynamics of Supernovas, where all the elements on the periodic table are produced in the moments before and during the explosion, and where immeasurable heat and light are produced and distributed to the universe. In the resurrection Jesus renewed all things, He distributed spiritual gifts to the souls of man, He paved the paths to heaven that had been lost in the psyche and soul of man. In Him are all the infinite and interconnected truths and loves of life. He is the source and He is the way, and we have the opportunity to know the way by the gifts he gave us to use.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.  Jesus gives us the eternal promise that He is closest when we are lowest, undergoing trials and temptation, and most in need of him. Trials will always come in this world, but we can always trust in the Lord that He will be with us, and that he is just. There is no greater power than divine truth from Him.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. In correspondences the table is a container of celestial truths, because good food means spiritual nourishment, and the table holds these in abundance. Our soul is made to be a receptacle of wisdom from the Lord, as a plant receives light from the sun and converts it to life energy. The anointing of the head with oil also corresponds to the taking-in of spiritual nourishment. This verse is reminiscent of Mary of Bethany anointing Jesus. She was so filled with love for Him and the revelation that He is God that her ‘cup overflowed with Joy’. Love elevates perception, and perception elevates love so she was on fire with the union of love and awareness. In spite of the difficulties of the circumstance Mary seized the moment and anointed Jesus while he was alive. For her incredible act of love – being the first to understand that He is God – Jesus memorialized her action for all time.

Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. The Lord gave us life from the moment of conception. From His infinite wisdom He made us to fill a unique need in the universe at the time of our conception. We have to live into it from our own will. Everyone ever born is meant for heaven (chosen), but because we are free many choose poorly. (Freedom is both the means of salvation and the cause of hell). Nevertheless, all life is sacred, and all are meant for heaven where God wants nothing more than to prepare a place of us at the table.

The Form of our soul at death is determined by the concordance between our external and internal self. What this means is there is a union formed between faith and charity when we act on them together, but not so if we make them separate. From the union of love and intelligence (charity and faith) springs forth renewed life like water from a fountain (as it did in Mary). At the same time, in this process, we also bond with God (to the degree we developed it) for He is the source of the good we are expressing.  The constellation of this union at the time of death does not change. This is the meaning of ‘As the tree falleth, so it lies”. Bringing our internal and external into harmony by the way we lived is a spiritual practice. Our internal and external being in harmony speaks to being genuine, honest, humble and strong. If they are separated we have been dishonest, avoidant, lukewarm and cannot be in the light of heaven. The practice of union is the source of all genuine spirituality. The constellation of this union at death is like a seed which, when exposed to heavenly light, will grow in magnificent ways we cannot conceive of now, and it does so for eternity. (In my house I will build you many mansions.) He is with us always. 

As Much as Their Personalities are Different Trump Brings the Best of MLK, Reagan (and Others) to the Table: The Meaning of Non-violence and How Trump Lives it and the Left Gives Lip Service

August 24th, 2018
Martin Luther King’s non-violence was the union of compassion and strength; it was not passive nor avoidant, but brought the power of presence, or conscience, to people and an issue. It brought the focus of being right with God, not the intent to beat others, and thus possessed the potential virtue of winning others over. In didn’t seek or settle in being above or below others. Being present in this way guided and/or forced people to face their conscience, a conscience that they had been avoiding, and unspokenly agreeing with others to avoid. Seeking this path effectively aligns a movement with the power of love and wisdom which God can honor and work through. Jesus said it in many ways; here is one: “He who is without sin…throw the first stone”. In saying this people were convicted by their own conscience from within which is transformative. Jesus never dissociated from anything, but was present to all no matter how great the conflict or the intimacy.
The democrats claim MLK as their own, but do it in image only, but inwardly are doing the opposite. Their socialist bent is the spirit of being lukewarm; to be lukewarm is essentially being avoidant. What people don’t think about is that being avoidant takes more energy then being present. Being present takes courage, being avoidant is giving in to fear or even cowardice. In their actions the democrats have proven to not be responsible to real dangers and problems. Their leaders sold them on the lower, dissociative impulse; on the promise of free rides, and on compassion to all without discerning the quality of things. Now they have a platform of emotion and obstruction, and have little vision or reason. As they double (multiple times) down on this position we are seeing that it harbors violence with those that take it too far.
The Trump movement is much more in line with MLK. Trump and America when acting from wisdom have always said that we seek peace through strength. This is exactly what Reagan did and said. It is the correct spiritual attitude when we have peace as the end purpose and strength as the means if necessary. This is the meaning of the Eagle in our national emblem that holds an olive branch in one talon and arrows in the other. Trump faces and deals with small and huge problems with confidence and presence. He has shown Americans where we have been negligent and avoidant; and the conscience of Americans has been peaked, and our hearts repentant of this neglect and lack of courage, but from this our hearts are now strengthened.
Look at what he is doing with tariffs and with the UN. It doesn’t take a genius to understand that tariffs should be balanced between countries and that the UN members should pay their fair share. Any kid playing marbles knows this, but a ‘culture’ had grown around this that allowed tariffs  to become way out of balance. This is the nature of evil that worms its way in and normalizes itself, even though it defies all common sense. We have the same problem now with the double standard in the way the left is treated in the courts and in the news and the way the right is; its a terrible bias where there is not supposed to be any bias, but its very hard to change. These things are of evil; and evil always tries to hide itself by snowing the mind. Obama and Hillary fed into this mindset. Trump is bringing back common sense with tariffs, which is having, and will continue to have huge implications for the future good in the world. It doesn’t take a genius to see what is fair, but it DOES take a genius to change it!
      Trump is facing the problems when everyone else before him just let them grow. There are many types of geniuses; Trump is a genius of spiritual practicality, dealing with power and conflict, and standing up to evil with composure – and even care. He demonstrated this well by standing up to the nations of the UN that were not paying their share; he did this forcefully, AND he did it with the other parties interest in mind. We especially see this in the way he deals with the very tricky problem of Putin and Kim. People were upset, especially the left that he was trying to be in rapport with Kim and Putin, that he liked them. This is where he is a genius in manifesting and others are not. He sees the evil, and potential evil very astutely; he also understands the nature of the other parties ego and needs. Kim is a single man doing very evil things, but he is a man with an ego, much less mature and much more insulated than Trump. Trump knows how to use his person and position to appeal to this mans ego, and how to leverage Kim’s weaknesses for the sake of doing good for the world. He genuinely wants to help him, and he worked every angle, including the power to completely destroy him and his power, – in order to bring about peace for the world. Though the following is not a perfect comparison, the situation with Kim reminds me of something in the movie ‘Schindler’s List’, where Schindler very carefully dealt with the nazi general that had power of his realm. Schindler played to this insane man’s needs; he reasoned with him in moments of rationality, but he also took advantage of his vanities and weaknesses to acheive a great good. 
The Trump Train movement is not about trump; he is the leader, but its about the conscience of the people coming alive, and in this God can work and bring about much good.
Trump is also like MLK in that he is doing a great good for the black community. He doesn’t have a consciousness of favoring or disfavoring, he simply does the right thing for the people and respects people to be responsible – and they usually respond with their best self. The left tries to manipulate empowerment by enacting regulations like affirmative action. Affirmative action inherently assumes blacks are disadvantaged and lesser by giving them a handicap advantage. This kind of regulation rarely works, but backfires because it assumes lack, it hinders responsibility and freedom so there is not the need to learn that people grow from. Another example of this is Obama’s bail-outs that were a complete waste of money and had no good effect, but bred and rewarded corruption. These kind of regulations are like introducing an invasive species into a eco-system that causes unseen negative results.  Trump works within the eco system of the free market! Trump upholds the merits and talents of people and their good traditions that breeds confidence and self-agency. This is why people at rallies love him so much, and foreign nations respect him. He demands respect, and gives respect, and he calls out people and nations hidden inequities. He demonstrated this very well in his visits to the Arab countries early in his presidency. You also see in meetings he always praises the good of others, but if there is an elephant in the room he calls it out. Also in official ceremonies he upholds deep traditions that mean a lot to people and that affirms their best self; the weight of his authority makes this very special for people.
       Trump also forgives quickly which is a very important quality in the MLK skill set. There are many examples of this; here is one: During his candidacy Haley said some very bad things about him, potentially undermining him at the time. But Trump saw the good in her, and when he became president he made her the ambassador to Israel, and she has done a great job, showing great courage in standing up to entrenched prejudice against Israel.

          MLK himself was reputed to be a big womanizer, yet he did great good. Schindler was also a big womanizer in his life; he was also money motivated, but God gradually changed his heart to save many Jews. Trump seemed to have these qualities in his life also to some degree, but God grew a rough business man to become a truly great man leading America back to its great identity!

     Notice Kanye didn’t kiss Trumps ass while he gave him the most powerful endorsement ever. Man to man respect from those who walk the walk. Kanye rejected group think and gave recognition to the good Trump has done for blacks and all of the USA. The Left was shocked at his expression of truth to power. What Kanye said costs a lot for a man in his position, but everyone knows African American unemployment is now the lowest ever recorded in the history of our Country. MLK’s idea of non-violence has the same spiritual quality to what Kanye called ‘Dragon energy’. Dragon energy, as Kenya used it, refers to a spiritual bad-ass, like Bruce Lee, which is standing up and respecting one’s own internal genius and that of others. That he invoked this term is great for all people and cultures. What Kanye did was a huge leap in empowering black people and all people; it was great moment of cross cultural integration. This is how the spirit of genuine unity comes about – to see and respect the good and abilities of others. Exactly what trump and MLK are about.
