Superstition ain't the Way - 4oct21

Superstition can be spooky, and fun, and exciting

especially at this time of year.

It promises health, riches, and love;

but it comes at a terrible price.

By externalizing the locus of power

it can infantilize fully functional adults

and exacerbate our controlling tendencies:

greedy and frightened.

Better, I think,

to follow the advice of the Tao Te Ching

and view yang and yin not as forces

(mysterious and occult)

but merely sets of world-views or strategies.

Lao Tzu’s advice

was to be defined by Yin

the way Garfield was defined

by his love of napping and lasagna.

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.
