“You Will Make Your Conflicts Disappear When You Understand Them In Their Ultimate Root, Not When You Want To Resolve Them”
A young shepherd suffered through the cold nights because of his blanket. It wasn’t that the blanket was too thin, or badly made. As he told himself: “Since I was a child this blanket has protected me from wind, ice and snow, but now the cold passes right through it. Sure it has some holes and tears. But I could patch it. After all it served me as a child and it can serve me now.” So he patched the blanket and sewed up the rips.
The next night he noticed his feet were uncovered and almost froze. So he took the blanket and pulled it down. Of course, that left his neck and chest uncovered. Because the blanket was too short he passed night after night cold and uncomfortable, with either his chest or feet uncovered.
