“Shake off your problems…”

A man’s favorite donkey falls 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. 

It shakes it off and steps up; 
The more the load was poured, the higher it rose; 
By noon, the donkey was grazing in green pastures. 

After much shaking off (of problems) 
And stepping up (learning from them), 
One will graze in GREEN PASTURES…
