Carries It On His Head

“The Lord bears the burden of the world. Know that the spurious ego which presumes to bear that burden is like a sculptured figure at the foot of a temple tower which appears to sustain the tower’s weight. Whose fault is it if the traveler, instead of putting his luggage in the cart which bears the load anyway, carries it on his head, to his own inconvenience?”  ~Ramana Maharshi

    …because the traveler doesn’t feel the inconvenience of the burden… they are too consumed with following a simple answer… it is hard for those with closed minds to expand them even the slightest bit to find a truth…
