In my recent conversation with Heidi L. Sieck, the CEO of #VOTEPROCHOICE, for my Interviews with the Leading Edge video interview series, one of the things we talked about was the importance of people involved in personal transformation – which includes health and wellness, yoga, meditation, personal growth, etc. – to be civically and politically involved.
In the above short video clip, entitled “Why People Interested in Personal Transformation Must Become Politically Engaged,” excerpted from the full interview, Heidi states “Why do you meditate if you’re not willing to walk into the fire? Why are you not willing to walk through the darkness and transform it? If not, it takes over.” (As we now see.)
Furthermore, as Heidi also points out, it is utterly selfish for those who engage in practices of well-being – be it yoga, meditation, eating organically, living green – if they don’t engage politically.
If we want to create an evolved open culture and a more holistic, sustainable and enlightened world, then we need people interested in living a more enlightened life to be leaders of this new paradigm. This is how we achieve a Quantum Revolution.
Heidi’s words are wise. Be engaged. This is how we will create the world our hearts know is possible.
