Judo and Meditation - 8nov21

It is said,

that during the Buddha’s first public lesson

he taught that the question

is NOT whether or not there is stress in our lives

(for there most certainly is)

BUT rather are we exacerbating it

(and we most certainly are).

He described Samsara

as an ocean filled with our resistance

and Nirvana as the mastery

of our acquiescence.

Ask any Judo enthusiast,

they’ll tell you that the question is NOT

whether you’ll get thrown

(for you most certainly will).

No the real question

is how effectively, and sustainably, and gracefully you flow

with being thrown.

Any idiot and run from a problem

but it requires true mastery to dance with it;

like the ever dignified Senator Padme Amidala

at a diplomatic event.

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.
