What Else She Said

I think the bottom line of a spiritual journey is to be able to experience yourself as someone of real worth. And I think that's necessary for political expression. I think there's so much overlap between those two realms. I'll flip it the other way: I don't really understand what political activity is about if it's not grounded in some sense of the importance of spirit in people's lives. And I certainly don't understand what spirituality is about that has no connection to or bearing on how we live in the world and what's happening to the people around us.
