Mayka, i apologize for my part in introducing the subject. I did not intend this to go this far. In fact, I regret that I'm contributing to the same thing I was upset about on other forums.
Originally I wanted to ask how to deal with my need to resolve these arguments, which are ultimately unresolvable. i should not have let it slip that it was specifically about religion, although it did have a zen component in that it dealt with my desire to know "the truth" and my resentment of people who claimed to know "the truth." i have no intention of pushing religion or politics on anyone. However, I am naturally interest in the ways that religion and Zen intersect, and yes, how they affect politics, both in negative and positive ways. However, if the board prefers, I will not bring it up here. --- In Zen_Forum@yahoogroups.com, Maria Lopez <flordel...@...> wrote: > > Hello all: > > Whatever them has always welcome in this forum.
