Heroes and villains in movies and real life
Frankly, I am getting tired with Donald Trump obsessive fascination. James Bond will always prevail against his nemesis who plans to dominate the world. In movies, the hero wins and the villain loses. For half the American people, Trump is their hero and for the other half he is the villain. The confrontation between the two has became more and more violent. Being worried about where this fight will lead to is legitimate. As we are not consulted about worlds affairs, being obsessed about it can become very toxic. Obsessive worries is a bad use of our imagination. We need to reframe the Trump effect. By focusing only on the outer world we are neglecting our inner world, that could help us keep things in perspective. We do not belong to the elite clubs and they couldn’t care less about you and me. However we can be there for our own club members. Helping and assisting our loved ones and all others within reach will enrich our soul. Harmony results from the balance between our inner and outer lives. Isn’t being united in greater harmony worth fighting for? Harmony existed before and can happen again. It all starts with every one of us awareness. Let’s Make Harmony Great Again and start with a playful approach for a change to access ours and others inner lives.
The twelve inner heroes – Who’s yours?
By analogy with the twelve months in one year there are twelve archetypal heroes. The year can be divided in three sections: beginning (March 21 to July 21), culminating (July 21 to November 21) and changing (November 21 to March 21). Each of the three sections can then be divided in the four elements: fire, earth, air and water. Three year sections times four elements equals the twelve heroes.
