Boy, did I get some blowback on this piece. Stuff like:
“Waaaay off topic. I thought this YouTube channel was about cannabis. Turns out it’s irrelevant psychobabble. Consider me unsubscribed.”
As you likely know from watching my videos, I’ve pivoted over the last several months from ‘general’ coverage of our cannabis culture to what calls to my heart – and that’s the pursuit of personal transformation and how the Plant supports us in doing that. I knew when I made this thematic shift I’d likely lose some folks and gain others.
My decision was based on realizing that we need to engage our own individual personal transformation in order to create a climate for social transformation.
I understand that this particular video is not about cannabis. Well, not at face value anyway. I’m foremost a student of emotions, particularly difficult emotions that keep people in a spiral of inauthentic and destructive actions to both themselves and others.
Because I was in a place of deep inadequacy and low self-esteem for most of my life, now that I’ve healed I find others’ woundings and how they play out endlessly fascinating and instructive. Another commenter, who dismissed my video along with the idea that Mr. Trump likely had an abusive childhood, called him “a predatory animal devoid of any genuine concern for others.”
True. And I’m driven to discover what made him that way. And what can we learn from it. After all, how many people do you know who really don’t give a shit about other people? Mr. Trump happens to be one of the most visible.
Spiritual teacher Deepak Chopra also ventured an analysis in this 8-minute interview pointing out that Mr. Trump suffers from fear, guilt, shame, depression and very poor self-esteem.
I believe many who desire to pull the curtains back on their own emotional woundings may find their similarities to Mr. Trump’s intriguing – and maybe even helpful to their own journey of recovery.
And, as for our beloved Plant, you can see by reviewing my last 3 months of videos that I believe cannabis can amplify and support our process of emotional healing (although probably not for Donald Trump – but you never know).
I’m sending you my love and support in all ways, Becca
