Born to be Alive - 2oct21

Good evening fellow old guys.

In 1979 Patrick Hernandez released his only hit,

“Born to be Alive.”

Similarly, healthy mammals are born

to empathize, love, commiserate, and cooperate.

It is the spontaneous function

of our anterior cingulate gyrus.

It does not have to be forced,

it works best when it isn’t.

In Tibet it was taught that the highest love

is spontaneous and uncontrived.

To put it in terms

of Jungian psychology

the better attuned we are

to whispers

of the collective unconscious

the better we’ll meet

others needs.

That is why we practice mindfulness,

that is why we meditate.

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.

Join our nightly livestream.
