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.

Through which,

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.
