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.
