When we fall on the ground it hurts us, but we also need to rely on the ground to get back up.
– Kathleen McDonald, “How to Meditate”
I love this quote: simple and easy to understand. Or is it?
You need the ground for 2 reasons:
1. to fall on it, to get hurt, to realise it is there
2. to get up from it, to get help to learn from it
Isn’t that wonderful, sweet and simple.
