Pet Euthanasia - 31aug21b

There are some

who euthanize their dogs

to make themselves feel better.

But that is not really euthanasia

is it?

It is just legal murder.

There are others who dearly love

the dogs who’ve adopted them,

but there canine overlord

is in utter agony,

and these humans

really want to do right by their dogs

though the very thought it

breaks their hearts.

But even with the best of motivations

how is one to know

what the dog wants,

and then they want it?

This is a case

for what the Buddhists describe

as “skillful-means.”

Our effective practice

of mindfulness and meditation

could transform our scatteredness and contrivance

into centered spontaneity

through which we can flow effortlessly

into the right decision,

at the right time.

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.
