Yesterday someone asked me if I was following the latest Trump “scandal”. I’m not, not really anyway, here’s why.
Mr. Blond was a psychopath in [the movie] Reservoir Dogs, but he did see this point clearly. While everyone was driving themselves batty trying to figure out if Mr. Blue was alive or dead, or free or caught by the cops, he just shrugged as he drew some milkshake up a straw: “He’s either alive, or he’s dead, or the cops got him, or they don’t.” All true.
His perspective on many things was bent, but on this point he was being sensible: We don’t have the information to answer that question, and sitting around yelling at each other and trying to puzzle the answer out from the same three pieces of entirely-inadequate information is a huge waste of time as well as one’s limited supplies of psychic energy. I don’t mean like psionics. I just mean the whole combination of emotional/cognitive energy in the brain.
So anyway: Trump may have done something very wrong. Or something somewhat wrong. He might be in trouble, or maybe he’s not.
Mr. Blond would recommend that no amount of deductive brainwork can gift someone with the clairvoyance to see remote places, and no amount of emotional investment can sculpt the stone of reality.
So, just sip the milkshake, and think about the things within your direct power to discover or alter.
I was going to add to this but it’s been a busy week so I am just going to say that this is great food for thought, especially if you are someone who is usually inclined to invest a ton of emotional energy into something you can’t possibly know much about and definitely can’t change.
