Literally, not Seriously
December 12, 2016

To explain the inexplicable – how did Trump win? This is the best answer I have come across – that while Trump voters took him seriously but not literally, those who after the result found themselves and indeed remain in a state of shock and disbelief at the result took Trump literally but not seriously.

This newsletter piece is not a comment on the election but instead is marveling at such a wonderfully perfect and complete explanation.

And the question is raised – who do you take literally but not seriously? And maybe you should change that.

    Everything depends on our own attitude towards life. Unless we learn to have faith in the higher-self we cannot create the right vibration for life to bring us what we desire. A friend of mine who already has two near school aged children recently found that she is pregnant with her third one. She called me two days ago and was near the verge of hysteria at the news. She said "I have gone through 7 years of babysitting, nappies, laundry and cleaning and all this time I was looking forward to the day when my children would be in school I'd have some time for myself. I cannot bear to go through it all again"

    I allowed her to cry and waited till she released all her anxiety. Once she stopped I said to her : "not unless you accept it as a defeat, tonight and then every night before going to bed you talk to your higher-self and feel that the greatest thing that ever happened to you was the birth of your third child"

    She was doubtful, but promised to give it a try. I will give her a call in few weeks and find out how is she doing and let you know. There is a cure for all situations, just quit feeling sorry for yourself. Thought will arise from nowhere but we are responsible to choose the way we think.

Sophia is a beautiful writer and I am happily sharing her work in my Feelbetter Newsletter.
