Boundaries and Sustainability - 26sep21



When I first heard of “setting boundaries”

it sounded rather unfriendly,

like I was erecting a barrier

between myself and others.


But in time I’ve come to see it

as something else, altogether.


I’m NOT separating myself from others,

I’m merely identifying the border

between that which is sustainable

that which is not.


I am resolving not to cross that boarder

and I prefer that others also refrain.


For if they won’t or they can’t

keep from doing or saying

that which will needlessly harm me


then what will I have left over

to be service to others?


Respecting our limitations

reminds me of very much Obi Wan Kenobi

who fought Darth Tyrannous

but turned down an opportunity to speak to the press.


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.
