An Alternative to Struggling - 27oct21

Greetings fellow hedonists.

Let us fear not our cravings

for they are natural.

The question

is “What shall we do with them?”

Let’s walk briskly around our block,

over and over for twenty,

or forty,

or even sixty minuets.

With each inhalation

we could silently and mentally recite

“Notice THIS…”

and as we physically relax

in harmony with each exhalation

we could silently and mentally recite


Practicing thusly,

we neither murder our cravings,

nor shove away

that which stimulates them;

BUT we do make peace with them,

and THAT’s the name of the game.

For, as Yoda quipped,

“Wars NOT make one great.”

Let us conclude

with a simple

call to action

In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported

not by monasteries but by students

as such the production of these livestreams,

blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.
