Labeling Ourselves - 24oct21

The Buddha’s path is easy.

The Four noble truths are easy.

The Eight fold path is easy.

And in none of these are we told

to consider who we are.

Contrast Mace Windu

with Qui Gon Jinn:

one dragged his identity

like the ghost of Jacob Marley

dragged his chains.

The other metaphorically

danced like a dakini of legend.

Perhaps that is why

we read in the Tao Te Ching

that he who would label himself,

could never know himself.

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.
