Chalica Week 5: The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process

Democracy… is a charming form of government, full of variety and disorder; and dispensing a sort of equality to equals and unequals alike.

– Plato

Chalice Lighting

This gentle flame is the roaring inferno of transformation, for only through freedom of belief may we become what we will

May our chalice melt the shackles of superstition and creed, lighting our way on the path of spiritual growth and freedom.

Action Ideas

Sometimes, the hardest thing about getting started with something like exercising our democratic rights is just taking the first step! So, in preparation for taking that step, take some time now and research some agencies and groups in your area that are working through the democratic process. This may be something like a get out the vote campaign or an advocacy group or even a letter writing campaign! The point is, once you know a few things that are out there, and if you understand what they are up to, when you are finally ready to take that step, you’ll have all that you need to know!
