573. A particular area for discernment on the part of the lay faithful concerns the choice of political instruments, that is, membership in a party or in other types of political participation. A choice must be made that is consistent with values, taking into account actual circumstances. In every case, whatever choice is made must be rooted in charity and tend towards the attainment of the common good. It is difficult for the concerns of the Christian faith to be adequately met in one sole political entity; to claim that one party or political coalition responds completely to the demands of faith or of Christian life would give rise to dangerous errors. Christians cannot find one party that fully corresponds to the ethical demands arising from faith and from membership in the Church. Their adherence to a political alliance will never be ideological but always critical; in this way the party and its political platform will be prompted to be ever more conscientious in attaining the true common good, including the spiritual end of the human person.

Buddha, wrote: Start Yoga
"...[T]here is the cultivation of meditative and contemplative techniques aimed at producing what might, for the lack of a suitable technical term in English, be referred to as 'altered states of consciousness'. In the technical vocabulary of Indian religious texts such states come to be termed 'meditations' ([Skt.:] dhyāna / [Pali:] jhāna) or 'concentrations' (samādhi); the attainment of such states of consciousness was generally regarded as bringing the practitioner to deeper knowledge and experience of the nature of the world." (Gethin, 1998, p. 10.)

A man is not a measure of his might, or he would be fighting with might.
Compensation is when you have people believe the size of your machine is in proportion to your manhood.

see with both eyes
In bygone days I had a publishing gimmick called "seeing beneath the line". It was an alternative view. Single vision is using one side of the brain to interpret reality and make decisions. Historically a ruling imperative allows leaders is to adopt such a viewpoint. Having to take into account both sides of the brain, using both eyes to view their piece of the world seems to clash with the idea of who they are, or want for themselves and those that matter - the ones in power who support them.

Our Leaders the puppet kings sling mud
that others dare not sing
The lies the flies of who did whats
tis enough to make you duff
Where has character to hide that they can live
but not abide in truth and valor worthy fame
That makes them all revere their name
Be this a worthy game – no tis our lives that remain
