Contrast

Contrast

The first time I saw President Obama he was in an interview on the Oprah Winfrey Show. I didn’t know much about him at the time but I was immediately struck by the qualities he exuded and seemed to embody. I am always looking for the qualities he exudes and in my experience I do not find these qualities with much frequency. I do not experience many people who are this refined and integrated.

As an artist I have several tools I can use that can serve to show contrast. I can use the contrast of different shapes and sizes. I can make use of different colors that will accentuate contrast but the most clear means of describing contrast is the contrast between dark and light.

President Obama embodies the refined qualities that can be seen as aligning themselves with light. He exudes dignity kindness decency and compassion and other qualities that uplift and inspire.

In contrast we have the infestation that now occupies the seat of the presidency. He along with his enablers express the vulgar qualities of destruction exploitation inhumanity and all the rest of the list of dark degrading coarseness that are devoid of compassion.

There is an extreme contrast of polar opposites between the finer qualities that align themselves with the light that we experienced during the presidency of President Obama and the extreme darkness that now seeks to envelop us.

What we now have is toxic and poisonous and when people are repeatedly experiencing toxicity and poison they become ill. Unless a person is highly disordered when someone is ill they seek to regain health as one of the most powerful instincts is the will to survive which can be seen in all of the life forms around us. When we are ill we seek well being. When we are being chronically poisoned we want to be cleansed. When we find ourselves enveloped by the darkness we seek the light.

The qualities of light and healing were exuding during the presidency of President Obama and that caused the things that want to hide in the darkness and continue to do damage while in hiding to come to the surface. When you shine the light on the darkness the darkness vanishes. The light transforms the darkness and it becomes unified with the light. Darkness can't continue to exist in the presence of light.

What we are seeing at this time is change of direction and a transformation due to the experience of feeling the toxicity of the qualities of darkness causing the longing for something better that will enhance well being. This a natural reaction which stems from the will to survive.

Trump is doing the job of exposing the darkness of the past that is still infesting the present. We are now having the opportunity to experience a clear contrast and it is moving us toward change. This is not happening all at once but it is a movement and a trend and it only makes sense that this would be happening when you look at the bigger picture. Other than when joining the military relatively few people are willing to actually die for a cause, they would prefer to seek healing than to die from toxic poisoning.

If we take the time to observe we can see this trend or transformation taking place. We can assist by looking for the little green shoots of change and nurturing them. That is how change can take place. We can discern the difference between the qualities of light and the qualities of darkness and we can nurture and assist the qualities of light. This is more than ethereal. We can aid in exposing the contrast between the qualities of light and the qualities of darkness and we can grow the qualities of light and bit by bit transform all of our structures and systems.
