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?

Are emotions

a reliable barometer

of reality?

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,”

Asoka Tano.

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.
