Powerful Empathy #2

President Elect restated his pledge to roll back abortion rights and used Twitter to lash out at his critics, leaving open the possibility that he would continue using social media in the Oval office and radically change the way presidents speak to America. I’m not sure how I feel about that.

I would never purposely attempt to thank Donald Trump (I can’t even type his name without cringing and recoiling in my seat). But I may want to thank him for bringing out the masses to the streets in cities of the U.S., for unfolding the evil, and for calling reform to the potential rise of fascism. We, the People will voice our positions and stand for our rights and nothing can stop us. We call against this endless war and against the annihilation of world peace. We call for justice and judgment to bigots and cowards, and justice will be served soon, I promise you. We stand, as a global nation, united, impatient, ready, undefeated, and we shall never tolerate the consequences of wall building and alienation. Our voices will be heard through vast mediums, we will march, organize, write, post online, and share our thoughts as a single entity.

United we stand. As a nation, as a people, and as a whole single global unit. Let us utilize our potentials to maximize our strength and to minimize our systematic beliefs. We share common grounds in being created from the same materials, and most of us call for peace, action, and justice. Our American nation is experiencing a powerful Left – Right distinction in ideology and thoughts; a labor versus capital rhetoric whereas the middle class is left to hinder processes of growth in the social sciences of diversity.

In this piece, I outline a proactive guide in how to unmask feelings of disgust and hate and to allow them to transform into Powerful Empathy. Are you empathic with those who face poverty, discrimination from race, gender, lgbtq, religion, global economy, and foreign policy? Are you mad at those at hands and in control of most of the world’s valuable resources keeping all selfishly to themselves? Do you feel disgusted by those who share different values and do not see eye to eye with your personal point of view?

I call for Humans to exercise a new type of Empathy. Based on Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: Empathy is the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another of either the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner. The excellent challenge of showing empathy is to those who share different values and reservations.

Reactive Depression is a common state many of us may experience yet not realize during our busy lives. Nonetheless, we refuse to become a depressed nation, we will not stand for it. But most of us Americans were robbed of an idea on the wake of the 2016 U.S. elections. I have suffered from anxiety at some points through my adulthood life, but I have learned through meditating and mindful thinking  there are present ways to control the overflow high-tide of emotions by transforming thoughts into peaceful reactions, abundance, and positive affirmations.

The main question lies: are we, as a people, drawbridge-uppers or are we drawbridge-downers? In the Social Sciences of diversity, humans tend to politicize certain ideologies that can lead to positive organizational creation and economic growth. Groups can also construct anti-public procurement systems, where one believes in global governance, no nation states, and no borders. This dream has been concocted for decades and to quote John Lennon: “Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can, no need for greed or hunger, a brotherhood of man, Imagine all the people sharing all the world… You…” Right?
