Teaching Story - Two seeds
by Life Positive
The first seed said, "I want to grow! I want
to send my roots deep into the soil beneath
me, and thrust my sprouts through the
earth's crust above me. I want to unfurl my
tender buds like banners to announce the
arrival of spring. I want to feel the warmth
of the sun on my face and the blessing of
the morning dew on my petals!"
And so she grew.
The second seed said, "If I send my roots into the ground below, I don't know what I will encounter in the dark. If I push my way through the hard soil above me I may damage my delicate sprouts. What if I let my buds open and a snail tries to eat them? And if I were to open my blossoms, a small child may pull me from the ground. No, it is much better for me to wait until it is safe!"
And so she waited.
A yard hen scratching around in the early spring ground for food found the waiting seed, and promptly ate it!
