An Open Letter to the American People

Dear America,

I know you’re scared. I know you’re hurting. I know that you feel like you have no control anymore and no one is listening. I know that you feel like we have no direction. I know that you are tired and disillusioned from everything that this election has brought up. I know you’re sick of all the hate, anger and fear. I know you’ve been scared by all the dark parts of society that you wish would just go away. I know you’re scared for the future. I know you’re not sure what’s going to happen next.

American people I tell you that all is not what it appears to be. In order for peace to truly come about, all this darkness and fear has to be addressed. In order for the world to truly change, it has to come out into the open to be looked at and accepted. This is what is happening now. This is what you are seeing everyday in your newspapers, television reports and internet media. I know that underneath all the anger and fighting, you can feel the fear. This hidden darkness that is in society and in each one of us is being brought out to see the light of day. You can never make darkness go away by fighting it or resisting it. Only in the acceptance of it can it truly be transformed.

American people I see now more than ever a beautiful time of transformation. Always, always before things can really change, the darkness comes up. You feel all the fear and pain that has been underground as it emerges from deep within you to be accepted, for this and only this reason. I feel so much hope for the future because I can see that we are allowing these parts that we pushed away and ignored for so long to come out into the open. This is what brings true, lasting transformation.

If you are scared for the future, know this. Everything is happening for a reason. All that is in your life and the world around you is exactly as it should be. The world is ready for a new way of living and things will be changing in the future. The changes are happening to make way for what we have been dreaming of: A world where there is true peace and acceptance of every human being and way of life. A world where there is no poverty or inequality. A world where we live in harmony with nature. A world where you can create anything you dream of. This world is coming. We have asked for it. Accept that the chaos you see around you is just the birthing pains before a brand new world emerges. The darkest night always comes before the dawn.
