Shoving our Way to Peace? - 29sep21

Let us not mistake detachment

for revulsion, renunciation or rejection.

Despite the ravings of patriarchy,

one cannot hate or fear their way to love and peace

any more than one can successfully

make love in the name of virginity.

One need NOT reason or self-talk

their way to letting-go

for evolution has already beat us to the punch.

During each inhalation

our body and mind are optimized

to notice: vulnerably, passively,

viscerally, and spontaneously.

And during each exhalation

our physiology is wired

to physically relax

and mentally release.

That is the secret to

the mindfulness, meditation, and detachment

which matriarchy treasures

and over which patriarchy boggles.

Like Rey Skywalker who we see

squandering her meditation

with grasping and begging

in the opening of “The Rise of Skywalker.”

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.
