In this profound and revolutionary work, veteran social activists Corinne McLaughlin and Gordon Davidson shift the focus of political dialogue from the "evening news" to the hidden spiritual causes of world affairs. We begin to understand what events like the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the Clarence Thomas hearings, and the national health crisis can tell us about deeper forces at work—including karma, reincarnation, and the "soul of nations." The key is recognizing the Divine hand behind human evolution. In the face of profound human crises, we learn to ask what spiritual lessons are being taught. SPIRITUAL POLITICS shows that each individual's inner work—meditation, prayer, visualization—can affect outer events. There is something each of us can do right here, right now, to change the world.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This is a fascinating and involving study of the cosmic, karmic and etheric dimensions of politics, world affairs and current events. Drawing from the great spiritual traditions, practices and practitioners, McLaughlin and Davidson, cofounders of the New Synthesis Think Tank and the Sirius Ecological Community, meticulously present the role of metaphysics in the political realm. Looking to ancient wisdom for answers to today's social, economic and environmental ills, they offer a new paradigm of transformational politics: making the political personal through spiritual practice and using this transformational paradigm to change the world from the inside out. (``We must transform ourselves if we intend to transform the world.'') In uniting politics with spirituality, the authors describe their concept of the Divine (including reincarnation and a transhuman ``Invisible Government'' of spiritual guides) in the solemn tone of scholarly reportage. Information-intensive and chock full of empowering suggestions, intriguing stories and uplifting examples of how individuals and groups can make an impact, this thought-provoking assemblage is an enriching, mind-opening book for seekers of spiritual wisdom and political solutions.
