The Chronicles is a like a field of mind stopping landmines. I noticed in the comments that some folks were a bit miffed at the fact that issues around the Regent and various letters were posted. As someone who was not around to experience this directly at the time, looking at these issues does help one trust the openness of the community and allows one to take a closer look at things that otherwise only end up being second or third hand reiterations of old memories that are charged with emotion and bias. The clarity that is offered the inquisitive student in presenting these documents is invaluable. This is not a culture of blind faith. I am on my own journey of renewing interest and commitment to the Shambhala mandala, and doing so without such resources available could only lead to a lack of properly established trust. So keep it up.
