When Wisdom Is the Source of Our Power

Whether we are sending guns or we are sending prayers, as a nation we must surround ourselves with a spiritual dome to stave off the arrows of hatred now coming our way. America needs enlightenment, not necessarily as a path to pacifism but as a path to power.

Race and Repentance in America

We need to apologize, and we need to make genuine amends. America needs to pay long overdue war reparations, and until we do, we will not move forward in any meaningful way. America needs more than forgiveness; we need genuine repentance, and restitution for our national sins.

An Open Letter to Hillary Clinton

In the final analysis, we really do love democracy -- and watching it dismantled as it's being dismantled, and corrupted like it's being corrupted, has taken a lot of us from denial to real depression to a collective "Hell, no!" that will have electoral consequences in 2016.

The Revolution of Consciousness

What is the Revolution of Consciousness, in a nutshell? Like all great movements in human history, it is based on a single insight: in this case, that we are not separate from one another. We are not material beings limited to the physical body, but beings of consciousness limited by nothing.

Bearing Witness to the Agony of Others

It's not very often that I see something on a corporate-owned American TV news channel and go, "Wow guys, that was great." But tonight I did. CNN deserves a huge bravo -- and a huge thank you -- for their special '60s episode about the war in Vietnam.

The Gnarly Psychology of Unnecessary War

Nothing the government does now -- no action or non-action on its part -- will change the fundamental trajectory of national tragedy -- and I don't just mean Iraq's -- if we, the American people, do not wake up to what has happened here.

Are You Serious?

I've heard things in the aftermath of the election that indeed have made me sad -- not because people didn't vote for me, but because of why in many cases people said they didn't vote for me.

The Perils of Groupthink

Marianne Williamson

There's a certain je ne sais quoi that Americans have in spades -- a we-can-do-anything spirit that makes so many things possible for all of us. We're rugged individualists, aspirational in nature, and we like to think for ourselves.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Primary

I am a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from California District 33. There are a little over fifteen weeks before California's primary election on June 3, and a funny thing happened over the last couple of weeks. I became a footnote!

The Time Is Now

Perhaps we need to raise the bar on what we think is brutal. Humiliating lies, embarrassing stories and someone printing ugly pictures of you shouldn't quite make the list. Brutal is being stoned to death for adultery.

Wisdom Politics

So how do we shift from probability to possibility? Surely not with the same part of the mind that directs things now. What we need is a new kind of thinking, and out of that will emerge a new politics -- a wisdom politics.

Give Democracy a Chance

Marianne Williamson

I hope that in the next chapter of American politics -- the one that begins the day after this next election -- the people of the United States will say where we want to go. And democracy, with all its grit and genuine glory, will have a chance.

May Freedom Ring, Even on This Sad Day

By attacking those whose religious orientation is not the majority, he was attacking one of the fundamentals of our liberty: freedom of religion.
