Don’t Sit This One Out.
In my Facebook feed (which has been insane since the inauguration and women’s march), there is a winding thread of discussion about the role of spiritual teachers, and just us as spiritual beings generally, in activism and/or political discussion. This is my perspective:
Our human experience IS our spiritual path.
Acting for justice is a spiritual act. We are embodied beings: there is no separation of our spiritual experience from our human experience, no hierarchy of “this is spiritual, this is not.”
It is by engaging in the human experience that we are shined like a stone.
That is dharma: soul in action. Fully human. Fully divine. Yoked together, in trying times.
This is it: this is what you were made for.
Do not sit this one out.
