Review of Spiritual Politics by Publishers’ Weekly (July 11, 1994):
“This is a fascinating and involving study of the cosmic, karmic and etheric
dimensions of politics, world affairs and current events. Drawing from
the great spiritual traditions, practices and practitioners, McLaughlin and
Davidson meticulously present the role of metaphysics in the political
realm. Looking to ancient wisdom for answers to today’s social,
economic and environmental ills, they offer a new paradigm of
transformational politics: making the political personal through spiritual
practice and using this transformational paradigm to change the world from
the inside out. (“We must transform ourselves if we intend to
transform the world.”) In uniting politics with spirituality, the authors
describe their concept of the Divine (including reincarnation and a
transhuman “Invisible Government” of spiritual guides) in the solemn tone of
scholarly reportage. Information-intensive and chock full of
empowering suggestions, intriguing stories and uplifting examples of how
individuals and groups can make an impact, this thought-provoking assemblage
is an enriching, mind-opening book for seekers of spiritual wisdom and

reveals the hidden causes of world events in the light of the ageless wisdom of
East and West. Here you can learn how to "Read the Book of Life," as the Native
Americans called it, and see the effect of collective thoughts and emotions on
our collective social health and current events.
Spiritual Politics provides a sense of hope and positive vision
about how to change the world from the inside out--as well as
the outside in. It helps you heal the split between social activism and
personal growth by showing how a changed person can become a more effective
change agent. Inspiring examples of a new, third way
beyond Right and Left are presented, as well as innovative solutions to
social problems. You will learn helpful techniques for conflict resolution,
synthesizing hierarchy and democracy and other polarities,
multi-stakeholder dialogues, intuitive decision-making and meditation in
this truly groundbreaking work. You will also begin to see the work of the
inner, Spiritual Government operating behind the scenes of world events.

goes deeply into:
A New Political Paradigm
Instead of seeking to triumph over enemies and greedily achieve more power,
this new approach goes beyond deadlocked, adversarial politics to find whole
systems, win-win solutions to conflicts that deal with root causes. The best
aspects of both sides are synthesized into a higher truth for the benefit of
all. Inspiring examples of a new, effective politics emerging around the
country are highlighted.
Synthesis of Hierarchy and Democracy
The new visionary leadership expresses a synthesis of hierarchical, top-down
approaches and egalitarian, democratic approaches. This new leadership
provides a higher sense of purpose and clear direction, yet also encourages
a great deal of creativity and independence in others. It presents a
challenge that calls for the best in people and brings them together around
a shared sense of purpose and meaning.
The Soul of America
Like an individual, each nation has both a self-centered personality and an
altruistic soul that embodies its highest ideals and holds the inner pattern
for its future unfoldment. But first each nation has to face its shadow--as
we are being confronted with today in this country. America's soul is
reflected in some of our national symbols--as well as in some surprising
places, such as on our dollar bill.
The Inner Side of World Events
World crises and
current events can be a rich source of collective learning and spiritual
awakening if we're willing to 'read the Book of Life" and explore the deeper
spiritual lessons being offered through shared national experiences.
Fascinating insights can be found in the Book of Life, when we look for the
deeper meaning beyond what the media usually reports, reflecting the inner
forces of collective human thought and emotion and karma at work. The names
of people and places in the news often symbolize and reveal deeper issues.
Principles of a New Economics
What are some of the spiritual laws that govern the financial side of both
our personal lives and the "earth household"? Understanding the key
functions of economic circulation, interdependence, custodianship, faith,
and other principles will bring our personal, national and world finances
