Who is Trump and the Make America Great Again movement really fighting against?
Now is the time to look within, just as you look plainly on the ugliest of external truths

The laws that held you prisoner to pain and death must be forgotten. (A Course in Miracles)

The thought system of the ego is held together with rules that can only result in misery. One of the fundamental errors of ego is belief in salvation through sacrifice. With the principle of sacrifice in place, what else but pain, misery and death can follow? What is sacrifice, after all, but the exchange of what you do want for that which you do not?

The only justification for such an insane belief is that somehow, magically, in the future, you will have sacrificed enough and will be somehow rewarded with your treasure. Yet the treasure you seek is forever within you and was never lost (only sacrificed). Here there is a clear problem with cause and effect. If you look logically at this, your ego cannot survive.

There is a voice in the head that drives us mad with a narrative of fear and guilt. This is the ego. The voice is silent, yet still loud enough to fill the mind and body with enough negative emotions and suffering that we are driven to madness. The purpose of the ego is always your enslavement.

What is astounding is that this insane thought system is not yours at all. The voice in the head sounds like yours, but the ego’s thought system was relentlessly taught to you through endless repetition by those who have attempted to enslave you. The ego is the conditioned mind, and the conditioning was never meant to work in your advantage.

The Great Awakening is the recognition of this enslavement, the full withdrawal of attention and authority from those who never deserved it, the end of sacrifice, and the beginning of joy. This undoing is a slow, frustrating, painful process. But the time has come that we break free from the chains.
