“It’s just politics.”
No one ever says, “it’s just governance.”
Politics is organized sparring about power, without much regard for efficacy or right or wrong.
Governance is the serious business of taking responsibility for leadership.
Over the last twenty years, the mass media has shifted, from “here’s the news,” to, “hey, it’s just media.” As a result, a system has been built in which situations, emergencies and bad news have been packaged and promoted twenty-four hours a day.
In the face of that maelstrom of noise, it’s easy to come to the conclusion that the world is more dangerous and unstable than it has ever been.
When we have a chance to speak up for governance, we can strike a blow against politics.
Because even though it doesn’t make compelling TV, the long-term challenges ahead of us aren’t going to respond to politics.
Dedication, resilience and concerted effort have saved us before and they can save us again. Except once again, it’s on us to speak up and do something about it.

A Note from the Editor
This website is a labor of love filled primarily with curated content from many people and places. Any content that comes from elsewhere will be shown with quotes or links. My desire is to create a space for others to gather who are on a spiritual journey, doing their own internal work and have a deep calling to make the world a better place. Whenever possible (mostly timing), I will share my thoughts around the content I shared...add my perspective...but sometimes I know I won't be able to do this and still want to be able to share in the moment...when it feels relevant to me and hopefully relevant for you. I hope you find value in the conversations at this table and will join me on a regular basis. You can also find me on Instagram and on Facebook.
