I have long felt that people in the transformational and higher consciousness, religious and spiritual communities are the last people who should be standing on the sidelines in regard to the great economic, political and social questions of our day.

Because if you know what changes one heart, you’re the one who has a clue as to what would change the world.

Throughout our history, some of the greatest social justice movements have emerged from religious and spiritual circles. What is happening now is an aberration. The way the left has pushed to the sidelines a larger spiritual perspective — at least when that perspective is articulated by me — is an aberration.
