Lama Jigme Gyatso
Don't Explain - 1oct21
You are not the troll whisperer.
For some folks self-esteem
is based on denying us
the benefit of the doubt:
like Palpatine who accused his rescuer
of having the lowest motivation.
Every time we answer a pointed question
we are giving away
our time, our energy, our personal power.
But what if someone is really good hearted?
Then send them a link
to an erudite explanation of your disorder
NOT from the psychological perspective
BUT that of neuroscience.
It’s a great litmus test.
If they won’t watch it,
they really weren’t that interested
and if they do watch it (and understand it)
they are less likely to pummel you
with pop psychology: impotent, worthless, and weak.
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.
