fairy tales for grown up

Fall and rise

One student asked his Sufi Master:
“Teacher, what would you say if you heard about my fall?”

“Get up! ” – answered the Master.

“And next time?” – continued the student.

“Get up again!” – said the Master.

“And how much can this continue, to all fall and rise?” – wanted to concreteness the student.

With a smile the master comforted him:
“Fall and rise, while alive! After all, the one who fell and did not rise is dead.”
