Contemplation makes it almost inevitable that your politics is going to change and the way you spend your time is going to be called into question. — Richard Rohr Read Economy: Week 2 Summary
I am encouraged to see many Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and Buddhist brothers and sisters engaged with the political realm. Being political is a basic civic, human, and spiritual duty! — Richard Rohr Read Connecting Inner and Outer Worlds
There is no such thing as being non-political. Everything we say or do either affirms or critiques the status quo. To say nothing is to say something. — Richard Rohr Read Contemplation in Action
Only the contemplative mind can hold the reality of what is and the possibility of what could be. Unless our hearts are transformed, our fears will continue to manipulate our politics. — Richard Rohr Read Creative Political Tension
Truly transformed people organically change the world, while fundamentally unchanged people can only conform to the system and wholeheartedly cheer it on. — Richard Rohr Read Questioning Our Loyalties
Jesus insists that we love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us. Prayer is waiting in love, returning to love, trusting that love is the unceasing stream of reality. — Richard Rohr Read Radical Politics
Transformative change in politics depends so much on having a clear view of the desired end. Where does that vision come from? — Wes Granberg-Michaelson Read From Mysticism to Politics
We need grace to change our thinking and seeing so that we can work for the good of all rather than demonizing the “other” — Richard Rohr Read Politics: Week 1 Summary
As a follower of both Jesus and Francis of Assisi, my primary moral viewpoint is not based in the well-being of those who are on top but at the bottom. — Richard Rohr Read Another Power
Without the nondual mind, it’s almost impossible for us to find another way of doing politics. Grounding social action in contemplative consciousness is not a luxury for a few but a cultural necessity. — Richard Rohr Read Service Instead of Domination
The real conversion confronting humanity today is a transformation of consciousness rather than mechanistic changes in human or social behaviour. — Diarmuid O'Murchu Read The Politics of Connectedness
