salt in water

on March 5, 2009

Sharon Salzburg wrote this wonderful thought in her book on loving kindness: about how we have a glass of water and then salt comes in. salt is all the suffering and pain. we keep trying to remove the salt, but that is impossible! instead – we can make the container larger- imagine an ocean. a pinch of salt can do nothing to it. even if you bring a truckload of salt into it, the ocean can hold it all and not lose its essence. what a beautiful thought!

with love, S.
