 You are right...it is a spiritual exercise trying to keep such beings in the light. Can't think of anything better to do about it.

Yes, yes—it's OK to see things from a different place. I'd love to live in a world where that was the norm. I'm puzzled about what to do with the far right wing who can't and seem to delight in making anyone who thinks differently WRONG, or worse unpatriotic. Sad to say, some are in my family. They didn't used to be that way. I suspect right wing talk radio and Fox News as prime cause. There's no tolerance there. The last time I tried to express my perspective as only the way it seemed to me, I was told "Your are delusional." When I suggested to this person that they check out PBS's New Hour and NPR's news shows, the answer was "They're communists." Hard to think all that's OK.

 Right now being on a spiritual path means reading and appreciating these open hearted soulful responses. They stand in stark contrast to the toxic hateful comments I've stumbled upon on the internet where people seem to find pleasure in attacking others beliefs. When I read a political article, I rarely go near the comments because it's certain that poisonous responses will follow. It's so satisfying find a site where hearts and minds stay open. And yes, Jan Phillips is a wonderful writer. Check out her other books. They're equally amazing.
