The Prison of Quid Pro Quo - 5oct21
Should we only be respectful
of those who are respectful of us?
Quid Pro Quo, this for that,
does a very good job of describing
a transactional exchange.
But it does an appallingly bad job
of describing the essence
of a fulfilling life.
The path of greed
and the path of love
are not only two different paths in life,
but they depend
on two very different regions
of the brain.
As men and woman of yin,
who choose to rely upon our anterior cingulate gyrus
may our lives be the epitome
of empathy, kindness, and cooperation.
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.
