Our Fear of Abandonment - 23sep21b
We are born soft, and weak, and helpless.
It is little wonder that we’re also born
with a drive to cling as tightly and as desperately
as if our life depended upon it,
for it most certainly did.
It therefore comes as no surprise
that the secret fear, hidden within each heart,
is the dread of abandonment:
be it parental, tribal, or romantic.
Take solace, my friend,
that the right partner will find it impossible
to grow weary, no less bored of you.
Like Darth Vader who whispered “Padme”
the moment, behind his mask, he was first sealed.
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.
