The grind of life

Wish you a big leap on this leap year!!!!!

Here is one dedicated to you...

चलती चक्की देख कर, दिया कबीरा रोये ।
दुई पाटन के बीच में, साबुत बचा न कोए ॥

One of Kabir's dohas points to the realities of life on this earth. It says, just like the two stone grinding plates in a hand-operated grinding machine, earth and sky are the two grinding plates for all existing life. And, all life goes through a similar fate as does anything in the grinding machine. Nothing remains intact in between the two.
