Grounded

File:Namibie Etosha Lion 01.JPG

When you run after your thoughts, you are like a dog chasing a stick:

every time a stick is thrown, you run after it.

Instead, be like a lion who, rather than chasing after the stick, turns to face the thrower.

One only throws a stick at a lion once

Milarepa, Tibetan Buddhism, 1052 – 1135

  1. Thank you for sharing this reminder. It made me smile. So often we are like a dog. It is only when we become aware of our thoughts through mindfulness and meditation that we can be like a lion.

    May you be safe. May you be well. May you be happy.
