A Zen master was walking the bottom of a mountain one day and found an empty well. It was a snow capped mountain, and the master took a teaspoon and walked to the top of the mountain, filled the teaspoon with snow, walked back down and put the snow in the empty well. He then turned around and went back up the mountain and filled the teaspoon again, and came back and put it in the well. He did that all day. At the end of the day there was still hardly anything in the well.
Neale Donald Walsch said,
“Every individual undertaking, every individual thought, word, or action which leads to the transformation of the Self and to the lifting of any other being, is of extraordinary importance. It is not necessary to move mountains to move mountains. It is necessary only to move pebbles. Then the mightiest obstacles shall crumble, and the way shall be made clear. “
