The Benefits of Love - 30sep21
Good evening my fellow hedonists.
If you want short lived, spiky, and unsustainable pleasure
then the under-brain’s dopamine reward circuit
is exactly what the doctor ordered.
But if you hunger for something much more
satisfying, fulfilling, and joyful
then may I recommend
the mammalian brain’s oxytocin reward circuit.
It is rooted in love, and cooperation
and through it could be found the meaning of life.
to paraphrase what Obi Wan Kenobi said to Luke Skywalker,
you could take your first steps
into a much larger world.
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.
