What will save your soul?

It is football season, and the world series for baseball is about to begin, and hockey has started. There are plenty of distractions.

The elections are coming up in 2 weeks and the negative campaigning with slander and libel a flurry in the media, stimulating, titillating, enraging, motivating.

When bread and circuses don't work, fear is injected into the body politic to condition people to react to triggers, "dog whistles" they cal them, to hate some and support others.

The drama and emotional manipulation creates a maelstrom of anguish killing the compassionate and empathic spirits of the population.

As a Unitarian Universalist I am left in the eye of the hurricane with my covenantal relationships affirming and promoting seven principles which, while they do nothing for my ego, they save my soul.
