We also have an occupant of the oval office coming off most recent business dealings inclusive of fraud as a delusional strong-man bully. When he flaunts his business experience - you’re talking the equivalent if not real mafia. Karma and the ‘what goes around comes around’ does not hew to the linear dynamics of the otherwise chaotic ‘face’, such as the women it flaunts as spokespersons for this cabal.
All dimensions of empire in demise, above all the motivation of the exceptional legacy of testosterone poisoning shaping its sexism and violence, swirl and twist to gain advantage from destabilization.
The task would seem to be to center down and jujitsu what is also the dynamics of the above of a duopoly pretending to be two different entities. The circus today of the hearing of Peter Strzok seems an example.
Similar to the concept of karma, the concept of the TAO - The Way - has been lost. As individuals we must be attentive to exercising our minds like containers. What internal and shared principles shape our presence in this situation? These are worth being part of community and praxis and exercised before crisis. I am partial to the translation by Herrymon Maurer - but there are scores of other translations at the link for any who are interested.
