Lama Jigme Gyatso
Empty your Mind
In the 16th passage of the Tao Te Ching
we read to “Empty your mind of all thought…”
but how do we view that metaphor
through the lens of Yin?
We notice our thoughts passively, and vulnerably
with each inhalation,
and we physically relax (as best we can)
during each exhalation
for doing so sets space
for our mind to release.
Thus it is not our thoughts that stop flowing
but our mind that stops grasping.
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.
