Fall Down, Get Up

One of my  favorite proverbs: "Fall down seven times, get up eight."
This speaks to me of resiliency; of cultivating an ability to keep going.

So, you fall flat on your face, or on your ass. Whoa! 
That hurt. It sucked! Get up, keep going! 

Falling or even failing says nothing about your essential nature. It can't tarnish your untouchable divine spark. As humans, we all face challenges and have devastating experiences. 

Will you fall and stay down? 
 Will you dwell in trauma or reap wisdom? Will you transmute poison into nectar? Use all that arises to root and rise?

My vote? Get up. Definitely get up! 
Keep walking. I am right there beside you.
