Trading Fulfillment for Predictability - 8sep21

What was Luke Skywalker’s reaction

to Obi Wan Kenobi’s unexpected invitation

to journey with him to Alderaan

and learn the ways of the Force (in Star Wars: a New Hope)?

Did he exclaim “Hell yeah!”

or did he whine “Alderaan? I’m not going to Alderaan,

I’ve gotta get home, it’s late, I’m in for it as it is!”?

Are we any better?

When life offers us a fulfilling adventure,

how often have we enthusiastically opted

for: something else, something safe, something predictable;

even if it is boring, and dismal, and soul sucking?

May our hearts

fill with the courage

of the heroes and heroines of legend!

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.
