  1. I loved seeing you on Super Soul Sunday with Oprah. You reminded me that we are all connected–I knew it but it’s kinda hard to think of myself connected ti Donald Trump. I will try to not hate him as a person even though I really dislike some of his actions. Thank you!

    • The fact is that every opportunity he gets he shows what a horrible person he is: devoid of compassion. incapable of empathy. He is literally incapable of inhabiting those basic human traits. He is a sociopathic, pathologically lying narcissist. I want to think we are all connected as well, and that compassion and empathy can change our relationships, but in this case to have someone so fundamentally toxic to a basic functioning society as the leader of our nation can’t be solved by the rest of us bending over backwards to try and relate to him, his party or to show him compassion. He is a black hole of a human being. Evil should not be embraced or encouraged and he is doing that daily.

      • It is also too easy to label something or someone evil. Keep creating or start creating the sequel to this culture now and allow room for the likes of Donald to come and share a cup of tea too. Never know what you might learn (even if it is how NOT to be).

  2. FANTASTIC interview with Charles Eisenstein! ! ! Loved every thought, story of how we all seek love, understanding and connection! To our world and each other.
    Love, love, love this interview! ! ! !

  3. Yep; this doesn’t take into account that there are psychopaths and sociopaths and that you cannot follow rational thought on how to deal with them – it’s not enabling them or bending over backwards. You can see their woundedness along with our own, yet not let them walk all over humanity, the environment, or make governmental decisions. to endanger and trash the planet. Of course, this would have to mean that the majority of the populace has done their own individual “self” work to even see the forest from the trees. We’re all connected, yes. Love one another, yes – but don’t allow psychopath billionaires to control the lives of the many and destroy the planet.

  4. Dietrich Bonhoeffer (the German Lutheran pastor) struggled with how to address the problem of evil epitomised in the person of Hitler and the Third Reich and eventually aligned himself with those who believed the the assassination of the dictator was necessary. Sometimes there is no “right” decision; it comes down to choosing the lesser of two evils.
    Was his decision based on love and empathy? I think he concluded it was; for the ultimate good of all, a sacrifice has to be made.

  5. Nicely done Charles
    The separation is lessoning and the possibility of this unravelling of the broken record story seems to be stepping out to the light.
    May your opportunities to be a wick in the candle of light continue and may you be well .
    Loved seeing you at the Imagine Convergence.
