Stumbling blocks into stepping stones

Posted by Julie F on 11/21/00 at 03:43 (033211)

This poem, which my teacher told me about 15 years ago, has been a touchstone for me ever since.

To each is given a bag of tools
An hour glass, a book of rules
And each must build, ere time has flown
A stumbling block, a stepping stone.

May we use the tools we are given to hammer all our stumbling blocks into stepping stones to greater self-knowledge and spiritual fulfilment.
