Buddhist Thoughts: Falling on the Ground

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.

Enjoy 😉
