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.
