The Inner Pickle
Still trying to make sense of the world?
When we know that humanity is ignorant of its true nature – which is the wisdom of pure awareness – then we are never surprised that it does crazy things, and so, everything makes sense.
If, however, we are so divorced from reality that we are ignorant of the true nature of humanity, then we are in a pickle!
“In a pickle” is to be in a quandary or a difficult position. Origin: Dutch or Low German
‘pekel’, which is q’something piquant’.
‘In a pickle’, meaning to be in trouble, was an allusion to being as disoriented and mixed up as the stewed vegetables that made up pickles.
How’s your inner pickle?
