Beware of Falling Rocks

Started a new set of prompts – I love lists of things – this one will prove to be endlessly productive for another couple of years – 227 Rules For Monks The 13 saṃghādisesas – 11 Not to encourage a bhikkhu who works to divide the saṃgha.

Beware of Falling Rocks

thinking for yourself

is a good thing

thinking only of yourself

isn’t the same good thing

I appreciate originality of thought

but not of disruption

when it seems

all you are interest in

is disruption

shaking things up

by destroying them

that is not productive

not conductive to growth

when we spend more time

repairing or building anew

as opposed to building

on what we already have

if what we already have

is so unsound

it will fall of its own according

and not

according to your judgement

so you can stop

jumping up and down on the earth

you may dislodge a few rocks

you can’t bring down the mountain

and those rocks

will only fall on you

Like my pictures? I post lots on Tumblr
