Monday Motivation

It’s like my teacher, Ajahn Chah, used to say. He would point to a rock and say, “Is that rock heavy?” “Of course,” people would say, “It’s a big rock, I think it must be heavy.” And he would say, “Only if you try to lift it. I don’t feel any heaviness.” Where is the heaviness of the rock? It is only heavy for those who take hold of it and carry it around. Then, of course, it is heavy. – Ajahn Jagaro
