The Point of it All - 9sep21



Not all embrace

the comforting myth

that a benevolent deity

constructed the entire universe


for the sake

of one sect

of one shade


of one gender

of one species

upon one planet.


Some are quite certain

of the opposite,

that we spend an eternity in oblivion


interrupted by a lucid and tumultuous existence

cosmologically insignificant in its duration.


Could it be with wisdom and love

wherein meaning is found?


Like Princess Leia

(in “Star Wars: A New Hope”)

who asked General Kenobi NOT for her rescue,


BUT rather for the safe delivery

of crucial information

into the hands of the rebellion.




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.
