Positivity is Violent - 18oct21


Positivity is violent.

It takes whatever skitters across

the kitchen floor of our mind


and says, “NO! You can’t be that way,

be this way instead!”

But is that really the Buddha’s path?


Better, I think,

to exercise the courage

to notice whatever presents itself;

and to do so with the utmost vulnerability.


Then, instead of transforming it,

or shoving it far away,

make peace with it.


We could shed our resistance

towards that which we notice

by physically relaxing as best we can

in harmony with each OUT-breath.


This sets space

for us to mentally release it.


Together,

this noticing, relaxing, and releasing

are what we call meditation.

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.
