Hello folks, I came to you all about a year ago with my new-to-Buddhism story. I have been consuming as much Thich Nhat Hanh literature as my work/school schedule has allowed, but I know I do not meditate nearly enough. I think the largest change in my lifestyle has been adopting a different mindset. I think calmly, I am more level headed, more outgoing and willing to try new things.
However, these past couple years have been politically trying for any decent person in the US. I find myself more politically involved than ever, this my the first election I voted in (FeelTheBern), and I like to think I am on the right side of things. That being said, I find myself being angered by the political happenings of the day. I feel helpless watching Trump insult so many walks of life.
I want to be politically involved. There is no question about that, however is it worth adding anger into my life? Politics sometimes draw me away from my spirituality, and that scares me. If anyone has any advice, I'd love to talk!
