Just Ignore Them? - 14sep21

In this interdependent universe

in which we dwell

we can effect things, beings, and phenomena.

And they can effect us.

Even if we ignore them.

Hey, isn’t that how an ambush works,

or Ninja?

Giraffes can decapitate a lioness

with a single kick.

Unless the giraffe chooses to ignore the predators.

If she does,

the pride will eat well that night,

of that you can be sure

dear one.

Or consider Darth Vader’s

corridor carnage

in Rogue One.

If the crew members of the Profundity

had ignored him

would they have survived?

Better, I think,

to allow our choices, utterances, and deeds

to flow from centered spontaneity:

the fringe benefit of effective meditation.

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.
