Once some wild dogs were chasing a herd of rabbits. All rabbits were running to save their lives. Somehow, they could avoid becoming victim of wild dogs and hid behind a dry bush.
Everyone was weary because of all the running and being scared of losing their life. After wild dogs left, rabbits took a breath of relief and when they felt normal, they started discussing their condition.
A rabbit said, “Friends! What life have we got! We are so small, insignificant, helpless creatures. We neither have horns like deer nor sharp claws like a cat.
If we get attacked we have no option other than to run away. God has done a great in justice to us. All the calamities of the world are thrown on us.”
Other rabbit said, “You are telling the truth, friend! There is always a crisis of life. I am deeply saddened by such a dreadful life and want to end it.”
Another one said, “I also want to die. I will just go and jump in the pond.”
Rabbits were now determined to end their life. They made up their mind to go to pond and drown. All started to go toward the pond.
There were many frogs living in the pond. All frogs were resting, when rabbit reached near pond. As soon as frogs heard sound of rabbit coming toward pond, they all jumped into the pond.
All rabbits who went came to pond to give up their life, saw this.
Seeing this one rabbit said, “Friends!! You saw fearing us, these frogs jumped into the water. Understand its meaning.
This means that in this world there are smaller and lesser creatures than us. They cannot compete with us, they are afraid of us. But still they are living their life, so what is the need for us to give up life. We should not be disappointed. When they can live, so can we.”
All rabbit understood and left the idea of giving up life and returned.
Many times in Adversity, we feel that we have got all the sorrow of the world. But the reality is that there are more unhappy people in the world than us.
Compare them, then we will find ourselves in good condition. That is why life should be lived in the face of every adversity without getting frustrated with life.
