Beware the Quagmire of Minutia - 12sep21

“Could ‘prattling on’ include

unskillful use of social media?”

she intelligently asked.

“It could,” I responded,

“but in our good hearted enthusiasm

to work out all the practical applications

of spiritual principles

we could find ourselves

stuck in analysis

as if in a quagmire.

Like Luke Skywalker’s X-wing

sinking into Yoda’s swamp on Dagobah.

Much better it could be to practice

mindfulness and meditation in such a way

as to nurture the centered spontaneity

through which the best

choices, utterances and deeds

could flow,

like water

through a garden hose

on a hot summer’s morn.

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.
