Spontaneous Compassion - 6nov21
It is good to be authentic
and to refrain from putting on airs.
The nineteenth century Tibetan teacher
Dudjom Lingpa Rinpoche
taught that if one simply practiced
the union of mindfulness and meditation
(or Trekcho in Tibetan)
that could be enough
to set us up to practice the highest love
which is spontaneous and uncontrived.
Contemporary neuroscience teaches us
that every healthy mammal is born
with an anterior cingulate gyrus
which is our empathy center.
Thus we are literally wired
for compassion and cooperation.
The centered spontaneity
that flows from mindfulness and meditation
simply helps us to get out of our own way
and be as loving and peaceful as we were born to be.
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.
