Do you want to know a hard truth? 👉Life IS Sisyphean by nature. No matter how we live, we get to push the boulder up the hill only to have roll back down again by the end of the day.
Such is no different with spiritual ascension. The difference is, the enlightened man, the happy man, learns to ❤️ pushing the boulder— he loves the coolness of his feet in the mud & the ache in his shoulders, and he looks forward to the boulder rolling down the hill at the end of the day, knowing he must push it back up tomorrow. And at the end of his life, he greets death as a friend, because he is grateful that he does not have to do it forever, even though he knows will miss it.
The unhappy man would rather someone else move the boulder or that the boulder be lighter, and at the end of his life, he cowers in the face of death, wishing he had paid more attention to the boulder so as to remember in passing how it felt.
