For Whom the Trump Blows

"Behind every soulless heel is an unhealed soul." -- Swami Beyondananda

Even in the darkest of times, it's always amazing to me how the Universe's Sense of Humor emerges to illuminate just about any "shituation". Here is a case in point.

Toward the end of September, there was a lot of buzz going around regarding the "blood moon tetrad" as an indicator of the "end times". Out of curiosity, I tracked one of the links to the Book of Revelations, and there I found a quote that stopped me in my "tracts":

"Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality" (I Cor. 15:51-53).

Never mind that this is from a website called Rapture Ready. There are many, many other sites that offer variants of this quote, indicating that a sign of End Times is "the last trump shall blow".

Now many reading this might be saying, "Okay ... we all know Donald Trump blows, and the blowhard is blowing even harder. So what?" And what about this "incorruption" the Bible is talking about? It's good to know the dead are incorruptible ... it's those very live Congress members we're concerned about.

As for the "End Times", I prefer "apocalypse" -- which means, "the lifting of the veils." As unworkable structures fall away, and as the "yarn" keeping them in place unravels we have the opportunity to learn and transform. How well we do this in the coming months will determine whether the Trump will be blowing "Taps" for our experiment in self-governance, or "Reveille" for an awakening political spirit.

So, let's part the Irony Curtain, and as unappetizing and frightening as it may seem, let's have a look at our political system "naked".
