Don’t get the illustration? Read on.
Would have detailed the lotuses too, but this itself took too long and I’m too tired now.
“Hopelessness is like a bottomless pit, and a bottomless pit is the safest pit to jump into. The only problem with the pit is that it has a bottom. If it did not have a bottom, what is the problem? It will be a wonderful leap. If you go skydiving, you do not know whether you are going up or down or nowhere because there is no context for you. Only if you look down, the damn planet is coming at you with a great speed then you know. If the planet was not there, jumping off and just floating would be wonderful.”
“If one is joyfully willing to walk into hopelessness, then liberation is a free process.” —Sadhguru
