We, these mammals, known as human...

We, these mammals

known as human…

are neither fleet of foot,

nor strong of limb,

nor sharp of claw,

nor long of fang;

and yet we have

managed to survive,

and NOT only endure

but thrive.

Why is that?

Yes, we have thrived

partly due

to our big ol’ forebrains

BUT mainly because

our midbrains

(replete with anterior gyrate

and a firmament

of mirror neurons)

are wired for EMPATHY

as well as COOPERATION.

and (in teamwork

with our forebrain) wisdom.

These are NOT weaknesses

BUT strengths

as well as being

humanity’s only hope

of avoiding an apocalypse

of our own doing

either at the hands of industry

and climate change

or due to weapons of war

and nuclear winter.

Let us conclude

with a simple

call to action

In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported

by those who read their teachings

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.
