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.
