Not for the Faint of Heart - 3oct21

The irony is profound:

the more concerned we are,

that we might be narcissistic

the lower the chances that we are.

But the opposite is also true,

the more convinced we are

that we are not narcissistic

the greater the chances we are.

The issue is not one of belief,

it never is.

The issue is one of ruthless self-examination.

The greater our tendency to second guess ourselves,

the more willing we are to peer under

the metaphoric rocks in our heart,

the more willing we are to shine the light of vulnerability

upon the dark wriggly things dwelling beneath them

the less apt we are to be the villain.

Spirituality: it ain’t for the faint of heart.

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.
