Comes a Time

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed everyone’s life and some of us are filled with darkness, or despair because so many of us have suffered a loss.  It is hard to find a bright side in these painful moments, especially since most of us are feeling a deep sense of meaninglessness about all of this senseless death.  Disasters have a way of invalidating the meaning that your life had before things turned dark.  It would be nice if I could emerge out of this with a deeper sense of purpose in my life and transform into the being that I am supposed to be.

It is not just the pandemic; it is also that idiot that we have for a president and his loyal following who seem to think that he is a good guy and they ignore all of his lies, that also upsets me.  I see Trump as being the Dark One, a primordial, sapient, cosmic force of evil in the universe, that only cares about himself.  He is the Dark Lord, a powerful villain and an evil henchman who has a history of speech and actions that have been widely viewed as racist or racially charged.  It seems that he wants to divide our country by inciting hatred, which no president has ever done before.  Racism has been around a long time and the way things are looking now, maybe things will actually change for the better as no particular race is superior or inferior to another, and no person’s social and moral traits are predetermined by their inborn biological characteristics.

Written for Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Sunday Writing Prompt where we are supposed to use the following quote for inspiration, “The Dark Night of the Soul is a purging process that calls us to release all that is unhealed or unnecessary— releasing all that is in the way of our highest good” and this challenge is hosted by Yves.

  1. The thing I pick up on is that we are conditioned to think we will have a long life these days, almost as of right. And things like COVID come along and remind us we’re not in charge.
    As for Trump, I can only agree.

  2. Trump isn’t the Dark Lord. He is the idiot caricature of a Dark Lord. Still very dangerous but not nearly as competent.

    What is driving us bonkers is all the time available for introspection. We spent our previous days fretting about this or that trivial thing, engaging in this or that activity. Without that structure, our minds wander into strange places, places we wall off from everyday life because of what is there. Scary places where our demons live.

  3. You say here what a lot of us are thinking. My kids came over today and we sat outside in the lawn chairs. It saddens me because they are afraid they will give me COVID-19 if they come into the house. On the other hand, sitting outside and enjoying nature on a beautiful day with loved ones isn’t all bad.

  4. I am an American living in Sweden. I moved about 10 years ago. I have only been able to go back once to visit my family. Why do we allow bullies to make the rules/set the example in our society? It happens all the time in schools too. We allow that one disruptive child to deprive all the other children of many valuable experiences. For example Johnny graffitis the school bus, so the teachers decide to cancel the class field trip. It is not the bully themselves that is powerful, it is fear. We are afraid and instead of claiming our power/taking responsibility for ourselves and our actions, we give that power away to the very person who is most likely to abuse it. The teachers who should be in charge of the classroom instead put that responsibility on the loudest/most obnoxious kids. Trump is like that loud obnoxious kid. Trump is weak and incompetent and the sooner we see that, the sooner we switch from the fear mindset and stop deifying him the better off the situation will be. Trump is one man. One man. And not even a very good example of that.

    1. Thanks for the inspirational prompt Candice and thanks for sharing your thoughts. My only hope is that Trump will be voted out of office in the next election, as one term with his as our president has done enough damage.
