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.
