Thereís only so much we can do. On the one hand, itís important to keep yourself somewhat aware of whatís going on around you and around the world while on the other, it can be dampening to ones energies. I think most of us want to feel happy and loving and discussing politics gets nasty quick. While itís not something I think we need to run away from I question if itís just distracting or effecting meditations/spiritual practices?

In this day and age The amount of deception used by our politicians and news outlets is so evident, how do you know whatís really going on anyways?

Yes. I often ponder this myself. What i have come to appreciate is your apparent tolerance of my political views. Sometimes it is good to get away from it otherwise the mind is constantly in a state of agitation over ideological differences with others. This is a type of internal need to make the world into our own image when in fact we have enough on our plates just improving ourselves. Spirituality and peace transcends ideological and political differences and i believe that many of us have limited our spiritual progress in the false notion that we can really change the world before we have sufficiently changed ourselves. It is something that has concerned me about my own spiritual progress and outlook.
