I had a delivery of logs today for the winter.
I had to move the logs from the front of the house to the shed in the back garden. It was a big job for me and it was a case of just getting on with it – one wheelbarrow full at a time. Although I looked at the pile at the start and thought ‘oh boy how long is THIS going to take?’, it didn’t really matter: if I just kept on moving the logs, in the end, the pile would be gone.
That reminded me of the way in which Geshe-la says we should practice Dharma. We should move steadily forward, one step at a time, like a broad river flows without stopping, and eventually reaches the ocean.
