Lama Jigme Gyatso
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.
this noticing, relaxing, and releasing
are what we call meditation.
Let us conclude
with a simple
call to action
