Find Solace in Service - 30sep21

“Gotta support the team”

Puddy bellowed

in the “Face Painter” episode of Seinfeld.

But the team didn’t care,

they didn’t even notice.

When subjected to the stressors

of late stage capitalism

adults childishly reach

for a parental figure:

real or imaginary,

celestial or corporeal.

But our favorite celebrities

cannot help us,

they’re just as fucked up as we are.

Like Palpatine,

who despite his promises,

proved unable to protect Padme.

Better, I think,

to direct our energies

to our friends, neighbors, and family.

Let us find solace in service.

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.
