James Hillman said that Religion is an instinct, and certainly, it has been an important element in organizing structure from chaos. I think what is disturbing to me right now is the fundamentalism that is hijacking our right to awe, ritual, belief, myth, tolerance, and the true values which seem to me to be universal to all religions. I struggle to understand what is going on when people who espouse the Bible, which so clearly states, "Thou shalt not kill," seem to be in favor of so much killing. I am unable to understand the disconnect. For me, right now, the words of the Dalai Lama are what support me. "My religion is kindness." For me, right now, that is enough.
