Kind of Like Life.

On the first day of Introduction to Buddhism, Claudio stood in front of the classroom and told us that in order to understand just the simplest concepts, we’d have to grasp and understand meticulously the entirety. And to understand the complex everything, we’d have to learn the littles.

And I sat there, and gaped, and wondered what study habits were most effective to learn it all at once and understand it perfectly before I could begin to begin to get it.

When I realized that what he’d said, that thing about not being able to comprehend a loose strand of existence, without first maintaining a base of beliefs and a vast expanse of everything.

That’s kind of like life.
