I have spent the better part of the last seven years becoming enlightened to a way of life that doesn’t dwell in negativity or meanspiritedness. I have read books, attended lectures, begun meditating, and overall made this a conscious goal. And I am darned proud of it and the progress I’ve made.

So it is from that place, the place of my Higher Self, that I have decided to rise above the fray of our current political climate and not engage. My last week or so of blog posts notwithstanding, I’m done with the lowbrow stuff of primetime television and the political blogosphere. I’ll keep up from a distance, vote my conscience, and hope for the best.

In other words, I’m going to live my life.
