Don't Fight your Mind - 22sep21



Don’t force your mind to still,

it wastes your time

and harms your mind.


To paraphrase Ray Charles,

let it “…do what it do.”


It’s all relative anyway:

sit for 20 minuets and your mind calms,

sit for 40 minuets and it calms further,

sit for 60 minutes and it grows yet calmer.


The question is not,

how calm are the coarser portions of your brain.

The real question is,

“How nimble is the subtle portion of your mind?”


Can it simply observe

our emotion, intention, cognition,

recollection, and imagination.


Can it accept whatever comes up,

be it as grotesque as Jabba the Hutt

or as glorious as one of his Twi’lek dancing girls?


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.
