Why Meditate? - 6nov21

Ask a biologist,

they’ll tell you,

there are stressors.

Some are circumstantial,

some are physical,

some are social,

and some are mental.

All complex lifeforms

tend to exacerbate their stress

by living in a state of resistance.

We resist the presence of the dreadful.

We resist the absence of the delightful.

The opposite of resistance is acquiescence:

loving and centered.

When we make resistance habitual

it feels like we’re living in an ocean of stress.

The liberation that the Buddha taught of

is simply getting so good at loving and centered acquiescence

that we practice it spontaneously, habitually, easily and effectively.

That is why we play with easy contemplations and meditations

to master this freedom from resistance.

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.
