It seems to me that we ALL voted our values… that’s why we react at a visceral level to the prospect of another four years of this administration.

I, for one, find that my core values are being severely violated by this crowd.

Values like:
–Stewardship and protection of the natural world;
–Preserving the dignity and equality of all humans;
–A fair and open society;
–Civil liberties;
–An open and honest Government;
–Civility and collegiality in public conversation.

Some of the values are spiritual:
–each human reaching their full potential
–holding creation as sacred
–Compassion for the weakest in our society;
–Humility, particularly in foreign policy;

I believe that our current culture conflict is, at its heart, a values conflict.

The more I reflect on this, the more painful the prospect of the next four years of societal and environmental degradation. I need to go back to the Principles of Spiritual Activism again and again to maintain my center.
