Spiritual Activist with Rahasya Uncensored
Guest, Lewis Elbinger
OK…I have to admit that I am a optimist, albeit a reluctant one in today’s world. I haven’t really been fired up about politics since JFK, but then we know what happened there. Then Bernie Sanders came along and once again, the police machinery came along and robbed him. But then came Lewis Elbinger to my attention and he made me realize the world has many people out there who can actually make changes in the government if…and only if, we get behind them. As Lewis told me in this interview, “It’s not really about me, it’s about a movement.” Lewis lives in Mt Shasta and has a background that is stellar for what he wants to do…run for Congress.
I fully embrace the values for which Bernie Sanders stands and with which most people would agree: compassionate caring for Life, for the Earth, and for each other.
Almost 50,000 people in this district voted for Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic primary. Bernie won 10 of the 11 counties in this district. That means a growing number of our neighbors are choosing a new direction, where elections are fair and free of corporate money, where Medicare is available to all, where regenerative agriculture heals and repairs the soil, and where the wealth we create serves the well-being of all rather than a privileged few.
I am running as a Green Party candidate because the words “People, Planet, Peace” are prominent in the Green political platform and my own. The Green Party bridges the red and blue ends of the political spectrum, finding common ground to replace conflict. For the many conscientious voters who are deeply disappointed by both major corporate parties, my candidacy offers a real choice.
I am a retired diplomatic officer who holds two Masters degrees and has 28 years of experience in international management and conflict resolution. My message is:
- Government with Heart,
- Vote your Conscience,
- Bridging the Divide.
I stand with the Green Party, I stand with the progressive Bernie Sanders movement and I stand with you in our efforts to create “the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible” (economist Charles Eisenstein).

This page is the beginning of me, Rahasya, telling it like it is, which is not meant for everyone in today’s sedated society. But if you are reading this you should bookmark this page and come back frequently because this is the “Uncensored” section of Lotus Guide where we are allowed to do that lost trait called “Thinking for Ourselves.”
I’m in the process of starting an Internet Live Radio show that will be a community supported non-profit endeavor once I can get my non-profit status. To talk about the things that need to be talked about I need to be free of commitments to advertisers so it will be entirely a non-profit mission driven show. The show will be called “Spiritual Activist Radio with Rahasya…Uncensored.” The reason for this is because after many years of looking, and dealing, with life’s problems I have come to understand that they are by their very nature, “Spiritual” problems which means that the solutions need to be Spiritual solutions. When I use the word ‘Spiritual’ I could just as easily use the word “Consciousness.”
Albert Einstein once said that we will never find the solutions from the same level of thinking/consciousness that created the problems. I’m sure you have noticed that no matter what we do we end up making it worse or the situations connected to it worse. Over the past few centuries the only thing we have progressed at is to come up with more efficient ways to annihilate each other and destroy the world around us. Martin Luther King once said that “We have guided missiles and misguided souls.”
We have cut ourselves off from the very nature around us that supports us and we need to reconnect. Without an evolution of consciousness…this will not happen. The answers we seek lie within.
So we all need to be a “Spiritual Activist” which simply means that we need to take action in the world around us using a higher level of awareness. Our world leaders, sorry to say, are on legal and illegal drugs and for the most part are sociopaths making decisions about our lives. It’s time to Wake Up from THEIR madness!
You are not alone when you get this feeling that something amazing is happening even in the face of all the chaos and destruction in our world. Our strength lies in our ability to come together with other like-minds and together we can and will change the world…Join Me and millions of others.
Thank you, Rahasya
