Story 1: Award Winning Corn
Once in a State lived a farmer who grew award winning corn. Each year he would enter State fair corn competition and won blue ribbon.
One year a newspaper reporter interviews him and asked him, “What’s your secret? How are you able to win this competition every year?”
Farmer replied, “Best quality corns that i use, i also share them with my neighbors.”
Reporter asked, “How can you afford to share your best seed with your neighbors, when you know that they are also entering same competition with you each year?”
Farmer replied, “Don’t you know? Wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn.”
So, is with our Lives. If we want to Live Meaningful Life than we
must also help Enrich lives of others, around us. For Welfare of each is Bound up with Welfare of All.
Story 2: Fruits of Trees
Once there was a King who was wise and loved by all for his justice. One day, he went out for walk with his ministers.
While passing by, he saw an old gardener planting walnut trees in garden.
King went to him and asked, “Are you servant or owner of this garden?”
Old gardener replied, “I am not servant, my forefather planted this garden.”
King then said, “You are planting these walnut trees, they will bear fruits after twenty year. Do you think that you will be alive to eat fruit of these trees?”
Old gardener replied, “I have eaten many fruits of trees planted by others. Therefore, i should plant trees for others. It’s selfish to plant trees for eating fruits for oneself.”
King was pleased to hear old gardeners answer and rewarded him.
We should not Just think for Our self and things for Our Own Benefit Alone but also do things now that could Benefit other’s Tomorrow.
