Vulnerable to emotion...

As Contemplative’s

upon the Buddhist path

of liberation

our job is NOT

to flee from some emotions

and chase after other emotions

au contraire…

our job is to simply be vulnerable

to whatever emotion comes up:

to simply notice it

without analyzing it,

without labeling it,

merely calling it “THIS”

if we must call it anything at all

and then to physically relax

as we breathe out

which creates the propensity

or supports the tendency

of our mind to release.

Think of it this way

we have been conditioned

to not just observe our emotions

but get involved in them

like two children

playing in the sandbox

at the park

and getting rather filthy.

When we get good at meditation

we become like their grandfather

sitting on the park bench

watching in amusement

as they play in the sand.

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 webinars, and videos, and livestreams,

and podcasts, and blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.
