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.
