Self Loathing ain't the Way - 15oct21

No one makes it to the grave

without making a bad decision at least once.

To err is human

and each of us is VERY human.

What then are we to do in the aftermath

of being a star spangled bone head?

Are we to swan dive

into the deep end of self-loathing?

Are we to throw our hands in the air,

concluding that the goal

was too lofty and unrealistic?

Shall we delude ourselves

with toxic positivity?

The Buddha would suggest

that as we inhale

we vulnerably sit

with our actions and their consequences,

and that as we exhale

we physically relax as best we can,

thus setting space to mentally let go.

This inadvertently cultivates

the centered spontaneity

through which our evolution and performance

are bound to improve.

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.
