Rachel was on a busy Cobb County, Georgia road. She said she saw something that made her stop. "I got out to save the kittens," she said. "Somebody was putting them in the middle of the East-West Connector." She reached down to pick up the wayward kitten, and it nailed her.
Lovely story, what a brave woman! I just hope everything works out with her Mortgage.
"And so, because this Teaching is so different from what Westerners are accustomed to, they will try to adapt the Teaching to their own framework. What they need to learn to do is not to adapt the Teaching to their own point of view but to adapt their own point of view to the Teaching. This is called saddhá, or faith, and it means giving oneself to the Teaching even if the Teaching is contrary to one’s own preconceived notions of the way things are."- Ven BodhesakoNanavira Thera's teachings - An existential approach to the Dhamma
