I’m in Bali leading a writing retreat right now, so it’s been strange to navigate this polarizing election from another country, where I am surrounded by not only native Indonesians but by ex-pats from all over the world. Given that the U.S. is supposedly the most powerful country on the planet, this election is not just about the United States. It touches everyone, and the shock waves of this divisive election are rippling all the way over here to Bali.


Last week, as I was processing my emotions about the election, I was emailing with my friend and love revolution ally Charles Eisenstein. Charles wrote back with an email that I found so hopeful. “Things are going to speed up … time for a major love offensive!” I felt my whole body relax. YES! Things are going to speed up! Time for a major love offensive!

After the most polarizing presidential election of my lifetime, we are being called to unity. Now is the time for us to come together — one country, one planet, one heart, One. That Donald Trump was elected President of the most powerful country on the planet has sent shock waves around the globe. Yet this is not a time for division. We are all responsible for this outcome. The U.S. collective has sent a message to the world that, as individuals and as a collective, we have gone too long without paying attention to the pain in the hearts of so many — the inequality, the injustice, the untended rage — and it has presented itself with a mighty roar that says with its vote, “HELL NO.”
