“Be seen and not heard.
Do as you’re told.
Don’t make a fuss.”
These are the lies
we are taught from childhood.
For patriarchy prefers us
docile and compliant.
But what have those traits to do
with survival, no less self-actualization?
Let us take to heart the example
of Princess Leia Organa;
who when the escape
of she and her inept rescuers was thwarted,
grabbed Luke Skywalker’s side-arm,
shouted “Somebody has to save our skins”
and blasted an escape route
right through the side of the corridor.
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.
