Words of Wisdom for Nov. 24, 2019:
Oneness: Hand and Foot

"When we step on a thorn, our hand reaches down, pulls it out, and bandages the foot. The hand doesn’t say, “Foot, you’re so stupid! I told you to watch where you’re going, but you didn’t. Now I have to fix you up. Don’t forget that you owe me a favor!” Why doesn’t the hand “think” like this? Because the hand and the foot are part of the same organism, and they help each other naturally and without thinking."
— Thubten Chodron, Buddhism for Beginners
