How Anastasia’s GRAD Theory Offers Hope In These Troubled Times
Also posted to Exploring Your Dark Side: The Adventure Of A Lifetime
Do you wonder, these days, how we, as Americans, are ever going to get through these troubling times with Donald Trump in office?
It would be hard to be fully present to what is going on around us, day in and day out, under Trump’s administration and be completely at ease.
But I am here to tell you, with all my many years of experience working with individuals, couples, families, groups and organizations, added to more than forty years of research and strategic intervention development, based on what Watergate taught me, that we, the citizens of the U.S.A., our Congressional representatives and our courts, are on the right and proper track.
Do you want to know why I believe this, so wholeheartedly, even though I, like yourself, am struggling most days to remain “tranquil”?
The bottom line for me can be found in the almost bottom line of my GRAD theory.
Interpreted it goes like this: The Dark Side (i.e. addictions and/or any other manifestation of the RSC) cannot hide out, indefinitely in a community. Community life will not sustain it!
The reason being: Over the long haul the character aspects (of the Dark Side Warrior) are antithetical to community life – and – humans are, by nature, communal animals. Thus, in a democracy, to go against that which builds and sustains communal life cannot sustain itself, indefinitely. The weight of the majority will not tolerate it.
Trust in this! And, do your best to be the best you can to be a part of the healthy whole!
To the end of strengthening your resolve -- and – your efforts to hold on to your hope, your highest ideals and your everyday commitments, today I am editing and adding to my description of the GRAD theory to provide you with highlights and guidelines to help you navigate this challenging era.
The Power of One is what I am stressing, added to the power of the many.
Please use what I am offering!
