Does spirituality have anything to do with politics?

Spirituality and politics?

Recently, I received an email from a reader of my publication New Spirit Journal. She had read my most recent column Wednesday Inspiration. This is an email I send out to my email list on Wednesdays - thus, the name (you can sign up here.). The topic was Transgender people and my position that we should be supportive of these folks as well as other people who might be outside what the mainstream society deems acceptable/normal.

She would quit reading

She said she would quit reading my articles if I didn’t stay away from politics. I told her I couldn’t promise I would do that and I didn’t consider this a political issue as much as I did a social one. And, I went on, I believe people on the spiritual path need to be involved in politics, that these two things belong together. In fact, I think this is one of the reasons, I wrote, that we have the split in our society we do right now. I believe people on a conscious spiritual path need to speak up more, not less.
