Contributing to Society

January 24, 2011

If spirituality has something to do with everyday life situations, then relating to spirituality means contributing something to society as a whole. Society is an extremely potent arena, full of vibrant qualities of energy. If we see society in terms of the practicality of work, sex, and money, we can find ways of working with it. From that point of view, we can see something relevant to us in society. We can see how we might contribute something to society, or at least how we could work along with it. The whole question boils down to whether we regard society as sacred.

From "The Sacred Society," in WORK, SEX, MONEY: Real Life on the Path of Mindfulness, condensed from pages 2 to 3.
