Ignoring Overwhelming Evidence - 2sep21

Why is it that so many posses

the unfortunate talent

of being able to overlook

overwhelming evidence,

especially when that evidence

runs to the contrary to the means

by which they turn a profit?

A vibrant relationship with the truth

requires a commitment

to vulnerability.

A vulnerability

that is willing to question

our preconceptions,

no matter how dearly they are cherished.

Rigidity is antithetical

to this vulnerability

and is integral to the defense

of our most cherished

hatreds and cravings.

Who can forget the Emperor,

within the second death star’s throne room

unctuously encouraging Luke Skywalker

with the now famous words,

“Yes, let your hate flow!”

I wonder,

what would he say

about our denial?

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.
