as we all know what Love can do – we need Love to go into politics and Marianne into the U.S. House of Representatives.
Please support Marianne
“As you may have heard, I have officially announced my candidacy for election to the U.S. House of Representatives from California’s Congressional District 33.
While many seekers have turned away from politics, viewing spiritual and political pursuits as mutually exclusive, I agree with Mahatma Gandhi that “Anyone who thinks religion doesn’t have anything to do with politics doesn’t understand religion.” I don’t believe we can afford to be “selectively conscious,” applying more enlightened principles to only some aspects of human endeavor.
I believe the wisdom of the heart is the one thing most lacking in politics today – but how can we complain about that if we ourselves aren’t putting it there? We need to make a concerted effort now to turn love into a political force. We need a politics of conscience — a new era of public discourse in which love is not minimized, the voices of women and children are not marginalized, and the future is not bartered for a pot of unrighteous gold. Love should be our bottom line, in politics as well as in everything else.”
