From the beginning of his presidency, Donald Trump has been the most difficult person in my life. On February 13, 2017 I began sending him a message with a loving-kindness blessing every day via the White House contact page. Starting with the February 20th message all of the letters are reproduced here, and I plan to continue sending him daily letters and posting them on this blog for the duration of his time in office.
These letters are my attempt to say out loud what I see happening to our country and to navigate these challenging dark times without losing my humanity and integrity. I offer them here in the hope they might be of use to others, whether as a springboard for developing or maintaining your own practices or as ideas to bump up against and engage with in some way. (For more information see the About page.)
May we all be safe and free from harm.
May we all remain open to infusions of joy.
May we all be healthy and strong.
May all of our lives unfold and intersect peacefully.
