There is a great Eastern based story that is taught to many mindfulness students.
A man is on a hunting expedition and the party enters into enemy territory. The man is shot by an arrow in the ankle. In great pain he reacts with anger criticizing himself for being so stupid. Why was he recklessly out in the open? Why was he wearing bright clothing that made him so visible? Why did the party so negligently stumble into enemy territory? How much more stupid could a person be.
These reactions have no useful purpose and a proper and calm response would be to attend to his injury which is painful. The reactions only intensify the pain and frustrate the rest of the hunting party. The better view would be to respond to the situation by taking steps to deal with the wound.
Outgoing President Trump clearly has lost his presidential election and is reacting in an unhelpful way by lashing out with rage and fury alleging fraud, corruption and portraying himself as a victim of the media, corrupt democrats and even Big Pharma. His reactions are causing his polarized vitriol to further divide a nation that requires healing. A rational response would be to concede defeat and cooperate with incoming President elect Biden to possibly save more American lives and offer assistance to the victims of COVID.
Is it any surprise outgoing President Trump is one of the most unmindful presidents in American history?
