Lions Roar : July 2010
A DIFFERENT SPIN I read your article Buddhism in the Spin Zonewith great interest. It gave us a chance to see what others think about Buddhism. In the tradition and spirit of the Buddha, let us show Mr. Hume compassion. I enjoy Shambhala Sun very much. The articles have been a very pleasant and inspiration- al part of my journey. May I recommend that you send Mr. Hume, and others at Fox News, a complimentary subscription? Thank you. Michael J. Whartenby Voorhees, New Jersey THE MORAL EMOTION In Polly Young-Eisendrath's article, The Hidden Treasure of Anger (March 2010), she opens with the assertion (borrowed from "the Greeks") that anger is a "moral emo- tion" because animals allegedly do not pos- sess it; animals show aggression and "flight or fight reactivity" but with no reflective component that they have been wronged. This assertion is patently untrue. It's a symptom of human ego to be- lieve we're superior to other beings-to believe, as many have throughout history, that we're the center of the universe. If an individual considered our relationships to other beings objectively and with humility, our sameness would be evident. Animals share a great many emotions with us, and anyone who has had an inti- mate relationship with a non-human being knows this. This commonality should not surprIse anyone, as we are, after all, animals ourselves. The belief that they're less than human beings is exactly what allows people to torture, exploit, and kill them for food, clothing, research, and entertainment with a clear conscience. It's a terrible injustice. But with every person who decides to treat animals with respect, the world becomes a more compassionate place. Wendy Wolf North Bend, Washington THE SUN'S THE ONE If the gods said, "Betty, you must give up all publications except one;' 1'd choose Shambhala Sun to read forever. It's to be savored from cover to cover. I particularly liked the relationship article (Romantic Vision Versus Everyday Disappointment) by Judith Simmer-Brown in the March 2010 issue. How right on it is! Keep all of that good stuff coming our way. You are certainly a gem of a maga- zine. Thank You!
