The Spiritual Is Political The On Being Project The Spiritual Is Political That attempt to demarcate the involvement of civic and political institutions in electoral politics becomes all the complicated, all the murky, and yet, perhaps ironically, all the urgent, when we have candidates who raise the demonization of African Americans, Muslims, Hispanics, poor people, Spirituality in Politics HuffPost Apr , Spirituality in Politics In the current uproar of American bipartisan politics, present are the true elements of the egotistic mind selfishness, lack of consciousness, and prejudice in harmony with utter disunity This is not the country, let alone the world, that we desire to create for ourselves, our brothers, or our Creator. Spirituality and Politics Politics as Spiritual Practice Spirituality and Politics Politics as Spiritual Practice And this time I m choosing to flip the script Rather than observing and participating in the contempt and vitriol that is so often the focal point of the American political process, I ve decided to incorporate politics into my spiritual practice I realize that may sound like an oxymoron, and stay with me for a moment. Spiritualizing Politics Spirituality and Politics Spiritualizing Politics And he went on to tell the minister, Politics is mainly about caring for people and their welfare If everyone understood this very purpose of politics, the country will gain a lot Over the On Spirituality Politics The Spiritual Naturalist Society Politics is necessary for achieving positive social ends and that can be a healthy part of spirituality but politics is a poor substitute for spirituality Yet today the two are often so muddled that it s hard for people to understand the difference. Political Spirituality Research Papers Academia Whereas some have characterised Foucault s work on ethics and spirituality as a retreat from politics, the chapter argues that in fact this work calls for a profound and revolutionary politics, seeking to teach anew the vision of a future. The Bond of Spirituality and Politics Conscious Bridge The Bond of Spirituality and Politics As we look out at the political debates in our country from the role of government, to the size of the military, to our rules and funding on education, immigration, business, race relations and, well, basically everything consider how the speaker s beliefs their spirituality are driving their positions. Archangel Michael Political or Spiritual Commitment Era As long as there is no balance between politics and spirituality in the individual, it is of great importance that everybody contributes to the shift in any way currently possible What matters now is to find one s place in society and contribute to the whole from that place. Spiritual Politics The Center for Visionary Leadership In actual practice, true spirituality can ennoble politics and politics can ground spirituality Spirituality can help people leave ego and power trips at the door and truly serve the good of others Politics can provide a practical arena for applying spiritual principles such as compassion, as instant feedback is given if someone doesn t walk Article A Note on Politics and Spirituality Populum Politics is not at bottom about the struggle for power, but rather calls for an international social movement whose goal is to nurture our souls As Rabbi Lerner astutely frames the heart of the matter, politics is above all else a manifestation of the spiritual and ethical consciousness of humanity.
This book hunts and gathers across different historical epochs and situations, juxtaposing biblical materials and hip hop, Christian colonialism and vodou, personal experience and racial politics, poetics and high theory It is compelled by a desire to challenge the current crisis of sustainability from the point of view of indigenous communities and deep ancestry AuthoThis book hunts and gathers across different historical epochs and situations, juxtaposing biblical materials and hip hop, Christian colonialism and vodou, personal experience and racial politics, poetics and high theory It is compelled by a desire to challenge the current crisis of sustainability from the point of view of indigenous communities and deep ancestry Author James W Perkinson ably synthesizes material from a diverse range of fields, including anarcho primitivism, biblical studies, and history of religions in order to argue for a turn to indigeneity The book s motive force is a deep concern for humanity s future in the face of eco disasters like climate change and population overshoot as well as the compounding problems brought on by political economy calamities Given the growing trend toward a turn away from institutionalized religious commitment and toward a generalized and post modern mix of practices and interests typically styled as spiritual, the work proposes political spirituality as a theme for investigation Throughout the book, Perkinson raises the question What does it really meant to be a human being This query is posed not merely as a philosophical inquiry or existential musing, but as a personal and political conundrum arising from the overwhelming crises now engulfing our global reality The book constitutes a poetic walk about across quite different historical epochs and disparate contexts Creatively foraging for indigenous memories and insurgent energies to help us live and cope in our modern state of unsustainability, the work aims to re animate love of the wild and interspecies listening for the sake of survival The text articulates a deep suspicion toward our growing fascination with a kind of techno messianism, while nonetheless exploring some of the artistic innovations and meanings emerging from industrialization and digitalization.

A DNF for me. There were some good points here, but I couldn't reconcile the fact that overpopulation wasn't addressed well enough. Basically, not at all. In the index, "overpopulation" isn't even mentioned. Instead, you find an entry for "Population overshoot." What a polite way to dance around the fact we're already overpopulated. It's *overshot.* Not overshoot. If we want to avoid total eco-apocalypse, then birth control and natalism need to be addressed as basic talking points (also not entr [...]
