Goals are the Fire in which we Burn - 28sep21

Every human brain,

is equipped with fault-finding circuitry.

This exists,

not at the whimsy

of some malicious deity,

but rather was selected for,

by evolution,

as one of many tools

to keep us alive.

But it does not always

feel that way,

not at all.

From the reptilian perspective

it evaluates our wealth and safety.

And from the mammalian perspective

it evaluates our relationships.

But from the perspective of meditation

it could simply ask

if we are flowing from the centered spontaneity,

that the Daoists call simplicity

and that the Buddhists call Buddha Nature.

The latter

is much better than the former,

much better than being burned alive

in the fires of our reptilian goals,

like Darth Vader’s defeat on Mustafar.

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.
