Mindfulness and alertness are like two people lifting a heavy log. A third person is watching and when he sees that the log is heavy, he comes to help. When it’s heavy like that, he can’t not help. He has to help. The person helping here is discernment. It can’t stay still. When there’s mindfulness and alertness, discernment has to run in and join them.~ Ajahn Chah [source: In Simple Terms – 108 Dhamma Similes by Venerable Ajahn Chah (Translated from the Thai by Thanissaro Bhikkhu)]
