What if we had a mindful nation? What if we brought mindfulness and meditation into the political arena? Would politics even stand a chance? It often seems like politics is based on being the opposite of mindfulness. Yet, there are politicians who are embracing the practice of self compassion and self awareness.
Watch a short 4 minute video and read about Congressman Tim Ryan who is advocating for mindfulness within our school systems and government. He leads a daily mindfulness meditation with other government officials and administrative staff, as well. This is inspiring! Imagine the difference in decisions that could be made in the political arena if goverment officials made choices and decisions from true wisdom instead of a place of power or control? The more True-Self centered the person, the more likely decisions and actions will come from a loving place versus a fearful place.
