A man’s favorite donkey fell into a deep precipice; he can’t pull it out no matter how hard he tries. He therefore decides to bury it alive.
Soil is poured onto the donkey from above. The donkey feels the load, shakes it off, and steps on it. More soil is poured.
The donkey shakes it off and steps up. The more the load is poured, the higher it rises. By noon, the donkey is grazing in green pastures.
After much shaking off (of problems) and stepping up (learning from them) one will graze in Green Pastures!
Shake Off Your Problems!
