Lama Jigme Gyatso
Stink'n Think'n - 25sep21
How long will well-meaning fools
try to convince us that our suffering
is due to stinking thinking,
all the while neuroscience teaches us
that striving to think ourselves out of what we feel
is a cause of the kind of forebrain exhaustion
that leads to depression?
Evolutionary biology teaches us
there are stressors in our
environment, body, society, and brain.
The Buddha taught
that living in resistance to those stressors
exacerbates our suffering.
Neither the Jedi nor the Buddha taught self-talk
but rather the coordination of observation and relaxation
with our cycles of breathing.
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.
