A common teaching in Buddhism is too see reality uncolored by one's own preconceived notions and accept it the way it really is, without projecting our fears and desires on it. Does this mean we should accept the world (and our place in it) the way it is, or try to change it?
As a citizen of the USA, I'm very unhappy with our current political situation. I don't like either of the major parties' candidates and I'm very concerned about the undue influence of moneyed interests in the political system. Yet there seems to be very little I can do about it. Should I rail against the system or put my worry down and accept what comes?
I've always hated standing out from the crowd and "rocking the boat". I do not like to draw attention to myself and seek to avoid public contact. I feel like I should do something, but I'm not sure what would be appropriate for someone who doesn't like rallies and making phone calls. Or if I should even want to get involved.
