The reason I am actually free to respect this man, “across the aisle” so to speak, is because of my Sufi studies now somewhat progressed. It is not because of his policies. These are foredoomed and hopeless factually and historically because they are, now, wholly out-of-time and out-of-place. It is, exactly, his hard task to teach Americans this once and for all. And this work calmly done indeed makes him a man more than worthy of the entire respect of “the handful who matter”. It is because (in some ways like myself in my outward appearance as an objective, actual, down-to-Earth and above all profoundly serene American conservative) he is — again like myself as a Sufi student — not distracted by the braying of halfwits; the howling curses of the asinine excluded who in fact are rightly so because of their jackass enormous psychological and, more importantly, moral deficits; and, the rest of the objectively “God-damned” surplusage, of a muley, failed and wholly useless generation that alone will be saved by the timely and prayerful intercession of the wise. This very salvation indeed is happening now in the hidden real story of the World, for all your sakes. So I now at least can beam this ray of light to you all in your outer darkness that you may finally see a little more of a bigger reality. And see it at last if only for a moment, and so maybe be somewhat more happy. At least for a little while. At best because of the crudity of things this can only be just a taste. However, making that same happiness completely and permanently your own is still the real work of adult men and women in this world of constant decay and collapse. It really is very hard. But you should also know that helpers are at hand, djinn and angels from all the Worlds. You only need to learn like myself to put aside fear as your daily exercise, too, and then to see. To see that it is not an unending nightmare and that you are not “all alone”. And to see more and more beyond that, and finally for once and for all. Among the first lessons of the student of wisdom, after all, is that the objectively superior men and women among us are really only those who first of all have completed their own work. They are that necessary bare handful uniformly dispersed among us, no matter what their outward role, who altogether are in communion at all times, and they are the guides of all of the lost souls also.
