Think About This: Don't Be An Idiot


Jean HoustonMost people know Arianna Huffington for her career as a politician and political pundit. Her website, the Huffington Post, is one of the most popular sources of progressive news on the web and she is a frequent guest on political talk shows like CNN and Fox News. But much less is spoken of her spiritual life, which, in the following excerpt from an EnlightenNext interview she credits as the source of her passion for social change:

There are a lot of religious traditions that require isolating oneself from the world and praying—the monastic traditions. My form of spirituality is not a form of withdrawal but of engagement, personal and collective. And that comes partly from my own Greek tradition. The word idiot comes from ancient Greek—an idiot was someone who was not engaged in public life. So there is a deep Greek tradition of engagement. It's part of what has shaped me. For me, engagement in the world is an extension of my spiritual life.

Arianna Huffington will be moderating a live public dialogue between Deepak Chopra and EnlightenNext founder Andrew Cohen in New York City on Sunday, December 5th, 2010. The event, which is titled "How to Co-Create a Spiritually Inspired Future," will also be live streamed via the web.
