Drop by drop is the water pot filled

“Drop by drop is the water pot filled. Likewise, the wise man, gathering it little by little, fills himself with good.”


Think not lightly of evil, saying, “It will not come to me.” Drop by drop is the water pot filled. Likewise, the fool, gathering it little by little, fills himself with evil.

Buddha in Dhammapada

A reminder to us by Buddha that a choice we have to be wise and use our power of choice to become better or be fools and not. In Buddhism is also a concept of Ignorance as an explanation of why we not make the right choices.

The antidote to ignorance is wisdom. Meditation is a technique as part of our journey for us to become aware and get a clear understanding.
