Ignoring The Seeds
Millions of trees in the world are accidentally planted by squirrels who bury nuts & then forget where they hid them. From the squirrels I learn, 'Do Good & Forget'. This will produce results
and make this world a better place.
"Fallen flowers can't climb back." If the root is strong, we can expect new flowers. Don't think too much about the 'lost' past. Just love the present & live for the future. From the tree, I learn,
"Make your roots strong. There will never be shortage of flowers."
Nature uses broken things beautifully.
Broken clouds pour rain!
Broken mountains carry rivers!
Broken water flows create waterfalls.
Broken soils set as fields!
Broken nuts provide nourishment!
Broken crops yield seeds!
Broken seeds give bread!
Broken bags enable babies to be born.
From nature, I learn that broken things can be purposeful.
If I feel my heart is broken, God is planning to utilize me for some beautiful purpose.
No Person in This World has Ever been Rewarded for What He has RECEIVED. He is Always Honored for What He has GIVEN.
From humanity, I learn my focus should be on giving and not on receiving.
Beauty was dear to Greeks, Power to Rome; Dharma was close to the soul of India. From Indian history I learn the purpose of my life is 'Dharma' which means 'DUTY'.
A soldier died fighting terrorists valiantly. People came to express condolences. The mother asked, "Will you ensure his sacrifice was not a waste?"
Most left speechless. I can visualize her pain. She must be torn apart thinking her son's death was a waste. She does not want a statue to be erected in the name of her son. She just wants to 'believe'
her son's sacrifice was not a waste! Is she asking for too much? Not at all!
From the soldier's mother's pain I learnt sacrifices of others in my life should never go a waste.
Little things, experiences, and observations of life teach us a lot. Or, should I write, 'can' teach us a lot. For us, they are like seeds that can become trees of strength and lighthouses for direction.
"Grab as many seeds as possible. Create as many trees as possible. You will see that it's easy. To ignore these seeds is what makes life difficult."
