In the end, the man decided to fill the pit. “The donkey is at the end of his life anyway, I should bury him here. And this pit too needs to be filled. I can do both the things at once!” the man thought. So, he went and brought a shovel. The man began to dig the ground. He was hard at work.

All through this time, the donkey kept crying and wailing. As the man dug the ground, he kept throwing the dirt into the pit. After some time, the donkey’s wails stopped. When the man stopped for a short rest, after a while, what he saw surprised him. “Oh, my donkey. You did not lose hope!” The man realized that when he was throwing the dirt on the donkey, the donkey shook the dirt off. And in doing so, the dirt started accumulating on the ground.

And when there was enough dirt on the ground, the donkey stepped on the now elevated ground. The man kept throwing dirt into the pit and the donkey kept shaking it off and coming upwards. Then, in the end, the donkey was finally out of the pit.

Just as the donkey shook off all the dirt and found his way out of the pit on his own, we too should treat our problems as the dirt. Only after shaking them off, we can tackle our problems!
