A Legend of old.
An old legend says….🙏💖
There was a big fire in the forest one day. All the animals fled in all directions in fear, for it was a very fierce fire. Suddenly a jaguar saw a hummingbird flying over its head, but in the opposite direction. The hummingbird flew towards the fire!
Whatever happened, it did not change direction!
A few moments later, the jaguar saw it fly past again, this time in the same direction the jaguar was going.
He could watch this coming and going until he decided to ask the bird about it, because this behaviour seemed very strange to him.
“What are you doing, hummingbird?” he asked.
“I’m flying to the lake,” he replied, “I’m drinking water with my beak and throwing it on the fire to put it out. “
The jaguar laughed. “Are you crazy? Do you really think you can put out this big fire with your little beak alone?”
No, said the hummingbird, ” I know I can’t. But the forest is my home. It feeds me, it provides shelter for me and my family. I am very grateful for that. And I help the forest grow by pollinating its flowers. I am a part of it and the forest is a part of me. I know I can’t put out the fire, but I have to do my part. “
At that moment, the forest spirits listening to the hummingbird were moved by the little bird and its devotion to the forest. And miraculously, they sent a torrential downpour that put an end to the fire.
The Indian grandmother told this story to her grandchildren, concluding with the words:
“Do you want to attract miracles in your life?then do your part.”
And the moral of the story:
None of us can make a difference on our own, it seems impossible!And yet we are part of this world and we must do our part.
If we do that with dedication, we can work miracles. If we do it together, we increase the chance of such a miracle infinitely.
Be the hummingbird, be the drop, so that in connectedness from heart ❤️ to heart ❤️ and from being 🍀 to being 🍀 we extinguish all the fires that want to disturb the harmony, peace and happiness in our society.
With gratitude and understanding it is possible to transform every thought in us into a drop of water and the water becomes a sea, a sea of feelings.
These feelings in us , connected with the mind and with the heart, are the basis for a new togetherness, for the good of all.
Be yourself, that’s your home, judge others, think carefully what you really know, because often it’s just our belief to know ….
Find out why others are different, only then will you get understanding of the other person and be able to respect them as you want to be respected.
I have one consolation in all this, we don’t have to like what the other person does 🙏👍💪🤗💞
