Zen and the Art of Throwing Snowballs into Hell

Reasons for throwing snowballs into hell

 BECAUSE WE CAN, AND IT’S WHAT WE CHOOSE TO DO. WE DON’T NEED ANOTHER REASON IF WE HAVE NO EXPECTATIONS. IT IS SIMPLY THE APPOSITE THING TO DO AT THE TIME WE ARE DOING IT. IT’S THE  HOW WE ARE KIND, HOW WE ARE GENEROUS, AND HOW WE USE OUR COMPASSION AND EMPATHY. YOU CAN CHOOSE WHAT YOU NEED TO DO AND TAKE ACTION. NO EXPLANATION PAST THAT IS NECESSARY.

Giving a thirsty dog a drink is ending suffering. Giving yourself a drink when you are thirsty is ending suffering. Giving a thousand people water when they are thirsty is ending suffering. How we are ending suffering matters more than what.

The impact your action has is on you and supporting how you want to exist. Sure, there may be external benefit, but sometimes the things that are suffering don’t have any external signs, so we do it because we sense it’s the Apposite thing to do, and it needs to be done. You are ending suffering by the act of remaining aware and being available for people, places, and things. We don’t always know if we are ending suffering or not. We do what we can and stay in the movement of transience.

For everyone who is doing but suffers from thinking they are not doing enough.

Be well
