Be a Human

Be a Human

In ancient times, a king placed a stone on a road. Then he hid behind a large tree trunk just to look and see if anyone would remove the huge rock . Some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around the rock and on its way down the road. Many loudly blamed the king for not keeping the roads clear , but none did anything about the stone path.

Then a peasant came with a load of vegetables. On approaching the boulder, the peasant laid his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road . After much pushing and filter , finally succeeded and moved out of the way . After the farmer had removed the stone he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been . The bag contained many gold coins and a note indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway to the king. The farmer knew what many of us never understand .

( Try to human. If others are not caring for something, does not mean you also should not care for it. )
