This article is several pages long, so I've only posted a page or so here. There's a link at the end, if you want to read the rest.
For this post, I've edited out a few political paragraphs. (The edited paragraphs are available in the main text.) They present a very simplified view of a couple political systems, and the examples given are for demonstrating the principle only. They are used mainly as a precursor to the metaphysical realities behind what makes all systems tick, whether they're our systems of politics, religion, philosophy, justice, and even (or especially) for those that govern our interpersonal relationships and how we deal with ourselves.
In any case, I hope you enjoy it. I've included several tools, which are in line with the theme, that have helped me stay centered and present. In these uncertain times, it's good to have some grounding techniques or ways to be "in the world but not of it." More >
