What a beautiful message in this story!
A young girl and her father were walking along a forest path.
At some point, they came across a large tree branch on the ground in front of them.
The girl asked her father, “If I try, do you think I could move that branch?”
Her father replied, “I am sure you can, if you use all your strength.”
The girl tried her best to lift or push the branch, but she was not strong enough and she couldn’t move it.
She said, with disappointment, “You were wrong, dad. I can’t move it.”
“Try again with all your strength,” replied her father.
Again, the girl tried hard to push the branch. She struggled but it did not move.
“Dad, I cannot do it,” said the girl.
Finally her father said, “Young lady, I advised you to use ‘all your strength’. You didn’t ask for my help.
Points to ponder…
- Our real strength lies not in independence, but in interdependence.
- No individual person has all the strengths, all the resources and all the stamina required for the complete blossoming of their vision.
- To ask for help and support when we need it is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of wisdom.
Every one of us has the ability to create and access the strength of the interconnects within us and it can start with movements in grace of connectedness to the powers within and around us.
For it is in tune with the patterns of cosmic energy beyond physical dimensions. And as and when we learn to value the strength of the interconnects in the interdependence…every thought can be chosen to reflect a flow of hope and goodwill.
Every deed that follows then will someway reflect that very thought and that would be the strength of the interconnects amplified.
When there is harmony in our thoughts and the core intention within, peace and goodwill reigns in our hearts.
To truly understand the power of unity is to see one another through beyond their strife.
Let’s care to empower the inner spirit in every little way we can.
Uniting all in the strength of the interconnects that run common in this thread of life .
