Pseudo-spiritual Parlor Tricks - 17sep21




One could develop quite a few psychic abilities

by implementing the Buddha’s meditation techniques

on a twice daily basis,


but that’s not really the point of the Buddha’s path,

now is it?


Oh sure, in Tibet it is taught

that one could pacify sufferings, increase blessings,

practice the Jedi mind trick, perform exorcisms,

and even portend the future.


But the pursuit of such things

often increase our resistance

to the presence of things we dread,

and the absence of things we desire,


thus exacerbating our stress,

as warned in the Buddha’s second noble truth.


Some futures are not worth knowing anyway.

But don’t take my word for it, ask Anakin.


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.
