Lama Jigme Gyatso
Emotions and Decisions - 26sep21
We want to be the good guy,
we want to do the right thing.
But it is not always easy to know
what the right thing is, now is it?
If doing what we think is best
makes us feel even a little bit sad,
is that a red flag?
a reliable barometer
No, not at all,
not even a little bit.
Emotions are flighty, dodgy, tricky things
and are seldom grounded in reality.
There is one way to really know,
for you could always find a cheer leader
or a neigh sayer.
If we wish to avoid the extremes
of being either scattered or hyper-analytical
then cultivate their antidotes
of mindfulness and meditation,
like our friend from the “Clone Wars,”
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.
