Impermanence & constant change is a part of life & an important part of Buddhist thought.
Only Enlightened Mind is lasting we are taught.
Recently HH Karmapa 17th Trinley Thaye Dorje gave an interview about this.
In this an interview HH mentioned deep respect for Pope as well.
Blog author's approach.
i accept life's changes, without losing my priorities, focus & view;
i focus on attaining Enlightened Love as a Way for Enlightenment as a priority, i know for whom i'll fight for as well.
Everything else is optional, every other change is acceptable as a part of the Way.
Respecting Pope & Other Ways.
While i respect Buddha Karmapa's words, i have my own way.
i think i'll try to respect Pope & Church more than before, even if i'll help 'beings in hells' more - because of my friendship with pagan & wiccan people - with witches, esoterics, parapsychologists & magicians, etc.
i'll still try to be a compassionate, altruistic, idealistic & good a person, i'll still try to persuade these people to not go too much into 'the Evil' & 'Moral Decay'; i'll still try to turn 'Black Magick' into the 'Art of Magick & Light' that aims to be as White, Moral & 'of the Light' as far as i can.
i'll need help of Good & Altruistic, Buddhist & Esoteric, friends & teachers - if/when i go too far into darkness, to drag me out - and i wish to repay my karmic debt for that if/when this occurs.
i won't accept this kind of help however from beings who 'try to drag me out from darkness' without at least trying meaningfully to understand, care & respect me, my friends, our Teachers & our Ways, or if they try to abuse the 'rescue' in any way.
i don't want to go away from Buddhism, nor from our Sangha of the Karma Kagyu Lineage under HH Buddha Karmapa 17th Trinley Thaye Dorje.
i'll try to be open-minded & antisectarian still.
By 'Esoteric' word - in a context of this article - i mean: 'Following a Spiritual Way other than of our Way'; in other contexts an 'Esoteric' word might mean 'Inner, Secret Lessons of Our Way' as opposed to an 'Exoteric' word, that means: 'Public, Open Lessons of Our Way'.
i wish our efforts to bring Spiritual people together instead of separating.
i wish for the Truth & for Honesty, including Self-Honesty as much as i can.
i wish we all prosper together, and grow together in understanding, wisdom, compassion, skillful methods & power.
i wish for true freedom, lasting peace & lasting happiness for all of beings.
