These past weeks newspapers and TV media have been obsessing over upcoming elections. I personally wish as much time was devoted to global climate change and the endangered plight of animal species. But what’s really relevant here is to ask ourselves if we identify with the media’s obsessions or if we are seized by other thoughts deep within us that may not have anything to do with politics? Does the spirit of the time correspond with the directives of your own soul? What is welling up seeking expression or contemplation? I believe the force of living in this time is more important than media definitions.
