I know most Americans woke up this morning to news that shocked them, whether they were happy or not about the results of the election. A man who has no military or political experience was just handed one of the most powerful and influential positions in the world. It is unprecedented in the United States.
The spiritual path comes in all shapes, sizes and difficulty levels. There are teachings on the planet geared toward every level of seeker imaginable, and each is perfectly placed to appeal to those for whom its lessons are targeted.
In this first in a series of interviews, two veteran political activists and old friends reminisce about growing up in the sixties and seventies and how they were part of a broad revolutionary movement to change the world. How has the system changed since then? How have they held on to their principles and kept fighting against oppression and high crimes?
Living in this world of opposition is a battle for everyone, and this battle is especially poignant for those who are attempting to function from a higher level of conscious awareness. For those of you who resonate with this, there are three keys for how to successfully live in the world that I would like to share with you.
IF NOT NOW THEN WHEN

A Message from The Kumara Center for Spiritual Awareness
An unfortunate byproduct of following the spiritual path, for many seekers, is the desire to leave the world altogether. In fact, it is precisely this desire that has brought many of them to their inner work in the first place. This is a trap.
The program of the ego is centered in domination, manipulation and control. It is not capable of doing anything outside of attempting to attain its personal agendas. Desire is born out of unmet needs and those desires to meet the needs drive the personality to disregard everything that is not in alignment with its quest.
It is all done from a place of pain. The unconscious need for love, money, power, control, satisfaction, etc… is what keeps us trapped in cycles of pain and suffering.
