quote J said, "God's Divine Rule is like a woman who was carrying a jar full of meal. While she was walking along a distant road, the handle of the jar broke, and the meal spilled behind her along the road. She didn't know it; she hadn't noticed a problem. When she reached her house, she put the jar down and discovered it was empty." unquote
Content: This statement is a play on the issues of content and form, and in another way it is an interesting corollary to the New Testament word to "Seek first the Kingdom." If we focus on form, we'll lose the content, and we won't even know it, but our whole trip will be in vain. Those are the typical disappointments of the ego. Once we put the outside first, we'll lose the inside. Other statements play on this same theme in different forms.
