Fox Hole Friends - 7oct21

Yes, two strangers may enter a foxhole,

but if the barrage is heavy,

they leave as siblings.

Why is this?

As mammals we evolved to cooperate,

and our cooperation evolved

to ensure our survival.

The more profound the peril

the greater the trauma bond.

But let us not confuse that bond,

or its empathy,

for fate, or compatibility, or destiny, or love.

Especially if the trauma we experienced

was at the hands of the narcissist

we’ve bonded to.

For such a thing

is but a quirk of evolutionary biology

and not an exoneration

of abusive behavior.


not at all,

not even a little bit.

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.
