In her book, Spiritual Activism: Keys for Personal and Political Success, Krause provides 12 keys for success that include principles taught by mystics and are grounded in physical laws of the universe. Through observations, interviews, and direct participation with hundreds of activists over a 12year period, she has found their challenges are becoming more and more complex, yet they are still able to discover keys to success no matter what country they are in, the various aspects of the culture around them, or the particular challenges they face.
Krause presents ten activists’ stories to show how they achieve real success. Themes include overcoming personal challenges, such as substance abuse or cancer, creating true miracles, entrepreneurship, service after a life of abandonment, postwar peace, politics around new environmental threats, terrorism, politics around nuclear programs, lessons from the Arab Spring, compassionate justice and a new world economic system. The activists provide awareness of their concerns while they provide guidance and examples using spiritual keys. For Krause, whether struggles are considered personal or political they are all embedded in power dynamics that must be transformed, and it is her belief that spiritual activism is the only sustainable way forward.
It is important to note not all of those she identifies in her book as spiritual activists affirm a religious belief – some are atheists, some are agnostic – the important message here is these are imperfect beings that truly align their goals with conscious duty and purpose with a strong inner calling and principled action.
Spiritual Activism offers the essential keys to success, with success defined as achieving all that is going to help readers live with purpose. These 12 keys include:
? Living Your Purpose
? Spiritual Intelligence
? Energy Vibrations
? The Law of Attraction
? Developing Your Whole Self
? Beliefs of the Mind
? The Law of Love
? Intention for Manifestation
? Faith in the Divine
Readers will easily identify with the spiritual activists in Krause’s book; there is nothing otherworldly or extraordinary about them other than their chosen commitment to lead a life filled with meaning and, as a result, they are helping to change the world for the betterment of everyone.
