Your attention please
Now this from The Huffington Post is important, and I'm not usually one to say a political column is important -- insightful, significant, infuriating, all sorts of other adjectives, but rarely important. This is seriously one of the best takes on looking at politics I've read in a long while.
I firmly believe that there is a spiritual element to everything we do, and that life is lived more richly when we make that a conscious part of our lives. I personally cannot separate morals and ethics from either politics or spirituality, and that makes my political decisions weighty personal decisions. I put the essence of myself on the line when I pick a political side and cast a vote. That's definitely one of the reasons why I'm so frequently disappointed in politics and government, but it's the only way I know how to be.
I want to give a nod to The Quaker Agitator for directing me to the article.
