Replying to LO21938 --

Thanks for that, Ed.

You know, I've been thinking a lot about beliefs. I have plenty of them.
Sometimes I get ensared by them -- especially when that special case
called reality just doesn't seem to want to align with them.

I've come to think that it is perfectly fine for people to hold different
views, even contradictory ones, provided that their work together is not
about debating views but is, instead, about looking for leveraged actions.
It seems to me that so much human suffering continues to be perpetuated
when it is more important for people to debate beliefs than it is to look
for actions to reduce that suffering.

May all beings, wherever they may reside, be well and happy.
