Lions Roar : November 2006
SHAMBHALA SUN NOVEMBER 2006 19 no lack of these people, all claiming a spe- cial insight into God’s will and intentions. At times, some of these people claim ha- tred and intolerance are part of a divine plan. It also subordinates those who have a view similar to that mentioned above to those who view God as a petty autocrat. It basically decrees one view of God is supe- rior to others. Bob Bennett Reno, Nevada I was delighted to read the September is- sue on Mindful Politics. An absence of this kind of discussion among political pro- gressives is a large part of the reason why the Religious Right has assumed the posi- tion of power that it has. Barry Boyce’s ar- ticle mentioned the agenda of the Religious Right as one of “a language of meaning, caring, concern, and faith.” I think it needs to be noted that the spiritual progressives also have a similar agenda. However, for progressives, faith, caring, concern, and meaning are experienced quite differently than they are by those on the Religious Right, and hence they lead to a different vision. This vision is one of interdepen- dence and inclusion rather than exclusiv- ity and intolerance. I believe the vision of the spiritual progressives is needed as we face quickly changing and often frighten- ing challenges in a complex world. Robin Majeski Columbia, Maryland EUREKA! I have been studying Buddhism for only four years and have read most of the prop- er beginner books explaining the falseness of the “I” and all other phenomena. Mat- thieu Ricard’s excellent article “Why Can’t ‘I’ Be Happy?” (July 2006) tied together succinctly and understandably every book that I’ve read on the topic and simplified a lot of esoteric ramblings that were beyond my novice understanding. Now I think I’m really starting to get it! Lou Dorse Scranton, Pennsylvania ♦
