The Madness Of Politics

by Nick Andrea

Last night before the election results were in, I was very anxious because I was so identified with my candidates winning. For a moment, however, I was able to withdraw from that and see the Earth as a whole, which is when I realized how identified with form I had become – my party, my candidate.

As a human being that exists in two worlds, the formless and form, it is necessary to engage with form. In other words, sometimes I have to take a stand. However, this election season has taught me how maddening identification with that stand can be. I wonder, is there a way to be in the world of form, with all its anxieties, conflicts, and dramas, but not be of it?
