Only Three Words of Warning - 25oct21
I only get to offer
three words of warning
to my adolescent self.
I don’t know why these limitations are present.
I do not set the rules.
When I gaze upon
my eighteen year old self
and consider all
the betrayals, deprivations, and frustrations
hiding just below the horizon
of his life’s journey
this would be my cryptic charge:
“Rebellious, Taoist Buddhism.”
For if I learned sooner
that neither convention nor patriarchy
are repositories of wisdom, healing or good fortune;
how many more people
would I have been able to benefit?
Like Obi Wan Kenobi if he had learned of Anakin’s
border line personality disorder.
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.
