Boulder, CO - Spiritual Teacher, Zev Tandon, told his students last week that it's important to always keep an open mind in the face of adversity. Though Donald Trump may not have been their choice for president it's their spiritual responsibility to give this "ogre" a chance before they rush to conclusions.
"It is when your patience and compassion are tested that you learn these qualities," Tandon told his students. He advised to keep their preconceptions about "this hellish beast" to a minimum and not let their belief that the "devil himself" has taken a human form in the guise of Trump close their mind.
"You don't have to go to a cave in the Himalayan mountains for spiritual lessons," Tandon said, "When a malignant spirit is elected as the president of the U.S. this is our chance to open our hearts and give this demon an honest chance to succeed. Keep the hope that he won't eat your children alive."
"He really held a mirror up to me and showed me my own bias," said student Dan McDonald. "Though I didn't vote for Trump I'm going to give the Prince of Darkness an honest shot as the leader of the free world. It's the least I can do, and the least I can do for him is what I plan on doing."
Tandon's teaching lightened the room and everyone's hearts. They realized this election is fertile ground to practice compassion and understanding. "I am not going to rush to conclusions and fear the worst," said student Jennifer Green, "Demon spirits from the netherworld deserve a shot at governing a global superpower like the rest of us."
