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.
