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.
