My Ego, Reflected in Mr. Trump

by Rev. Robin Singler, O.M.C.

Rev. Robin SinglerI attended an event by Gary and Cindy Lora-Renard recently, which was a wonderful experience. The topic of politics was briefly touched upon during their discussion, and I thought to myself how grateful I am to not be pulled into the frustration and fear that so many people experience when it comes to politics. Although it can trip my ego trigger from time to time, the daily news has not been a primary source of suffering for me, or so I thought.

Then an interesting thing started to happen as the day unfolded. As I sat in my front row seat absorbing all that I could from Gary and Cindy, a vivid image of Donald Trump appeared in my mind. His beet-red face was screaming, his hands held up on the sides of his face in a state of absolute fear and terror so extreme that it was challenging to focus on the image without crying. The fear and utter helplessness in this image hit me hard and I fought back tears as he kept appearing in my mind. He was screaming “Help! Help me!” so loudly and desperately I couldn’t concentrate on what was happening in the room. It was clear this was coming up for me to look at and share with others who might also benefit. 

This image of Mr. Trump bore a striking resemblance to another image I had experienced about myself. It reminded me of a healing session I had a while back, in which the facilitator saw into my unconscious mind and described an image of me screaming similarly in fear and pain, raging against God and my hapless plight as a body doomed to suffer and die. Boundless rage and a sense of loss so deep and dark was revealed to me during that healing session, and then here was Trump’s fear and helplessness appearing to me in the same way. This is the ego belief system we all must face, appearing as a deeply disturbing image of loss and isolation crying out for help. “Someone help me out of this!” We in the ACIM community say “It’s either Love, or a call for Love.” Well, if this terrifying image doesn’t qualify as a call for Love, I don’t know what would fit the bill. There is no other possible response to this cry for help than tenderness and compassion.

And so, the truth seems inescapable to me now: Trump is my brother, a perfect reflection of what is in my own mind. Any hate, ignorance or malice I attribute to him is mine; I am responsible. I simply cannot leave him out in the cold to be judged any longer, for I only judge myself. Now the transformation of this image can begin, from fearful monster to my Savior. As I forgive and accept that what I think he’s done has not occurred, we are both set free to reclaim the inheritance that waits silently and patiently for us: the peacefulness of Eternal Love.
