Spirituality and Politics

Jack Kornfield leads a guided meditation about Spirituality and Politics. It’s a lengthy broadcast starting with a beautiful song you may want to skip the intro part.

Spirituality and politics may not at first glance appear to fit together naturally, and yet the two are inextricably intertwined. The politics of the world today are highlighting our current state of disconnect – our disconnect within ourselves, from the natural earth, and from others. For countless centuries, spiritual groups and Indigenous cultures have understood our deep interconnectedness and have used spirituality and prayer to help heal the political turbulence of the world.

Spirituality in a Political World 

In order to positively transform the political state of the world, we need to take a holistic approach to the challenges we are facing. Spirituality helps to guide us towards a new way of viewing the world and the problems we face, offering us the insight to find creative solutions to what we’re up against. Albert Einstein once wrote, “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used to create them.” When it comes to the political divides and paradigms that guide us through this modern age, his quote rings true. By embracing a new outlook on our struggles, one that we can achieve through awareness of our divine interconnectedness and through meditation, we stand a greater chance at healing the planet we live on.

Meditation for Healing Political Divide

To transform the world outside of ourselves, we can first begin by peacefully navigating the world within. Through continual mindfulness and meditation practice, we gain insights that can help us to bridge the divides between individuals, groups, and nations. If we are in leadership roles, we can also explore the possibility of teaching mindfulness to help balance the world through each individual we come to work with.
