Why We Should Mix Spirituality With Politics

Masters of Life on Meaningful Living

The following article is extracted from
the book "Masters of Life on Meaningful Living"
by Dr. Tommy S. W. Wong

Tom: Well, I’ve been told that we should not mix spirituality with politics.

Guru: Well if you do that, isn’t that politics in itself?

Tom: Hmm, you have a point here.

Guru: And then if we take politics in its broadest sense.

Tom: Okay, let’s take politics in its broadest sense.

Guru: It covers everything, right?

Tom: Right, it covers everything.

Guru: And if we take spirituality in its broadest sense.

Tom: Okay, let’s take spirituality in its broadest sense.

Guru: It also covers everything, right?

Tom: Wow sure, it also covers everything.

Guru: So, how can spirituality not mix with politics?

Tom: Or politics mix with spirituality?

Guru: Exactly. So the best place to practice spirituality is actually in politics.

Tom: Fascinating!

Guru: And then there is a saying.

Tom: What is the saying?

Guru: Politics is spirituality demonstrated!

Tom: So, politics is the best place to demonstrate our spirituality.

Guru: And there is another point about spirituality and politics.

Tom: What is the point?

Guru: The practice of spirituality is to help humans to build a “better” society through an inner path.

Tom: How about politics?

Guru: The practice of politics is to help humans to build a “better” society through an outer path.

Tom: So the two paths lead to the same destination?

Guru: Yeap, they actually serve the same purpose.

Tom: Wow, this is mind-blowing!

Guru: You sound surprised?

Tom: Yeah, nobody has put it like this before.

Guru: And there is one more point about spirituality and politics.

Tom: What is the point?

Guru: Spirituality and politics are two main pillars of society, right?

Tom: Sure, they are.

Guru: So, it’s better for them to support the same platform, right?

Tom: You mean it’s better for them to support the same ideal?

Guru: I mean it’s safer for the two pillars to support one platform.

Tom: Rather than for the two pillars to support two different platforms.

Guru: So, it’s better for spirituality and politics to work together.

Tom: Rather than for them to work separately.

Guru: Now you see the power of politics with spirituality.

Tom: Yeap, I see that the mix of spirituality with politics can be really powerful.
