A Perspective Shift.



Once, a bird searched for a home to lay her eggs and shelter in the rainy season.
In her search, she saw two trees, and she went to ask for protection.

When she asked the first tree, it refused to give her shelter. With disappointment, she went to the second. And the second tree agreed.

She made her home and laid her eggs, and then the rainy season arrived.
The rain was so heavy that the first tree fell and was carried away by the flood.

The bird saw this and, in a taunting way, said: ”See, this is your karma, you didn’t offer me shelter, and now God has given you the punishment.”

The tree smiled for the last time and said :”I knew I’m not going to survive this rainy season. That’s why I refused you. I didn’t want to risk your and your children’s lives.“

The bird had tears as she now knew why she and the kids were alive !

Learning :

1. We should not always consider someone’s “NO” as their arrogance

2. You don’t know the whole picture.

3. Respect others’ decision whether it is in your favor or not.

5. We get so involved in our problems that we forget to view the other person’s point.

5. Without even trying to understand the motive, we make our judgments.

6. We should never judge others by their “No” because we don’t know their story.

7. You don’t know what good is hidden for you behind it.

Pause, and think about it deeply before you pass any judgments about it in your mind.

  1. You are right dear. Even when praying to God , sometimes His “No” is the big yes that we expect and accept as well. Thank you for sharing this wonderful story💕

  3. SMiLes Dear Savvy my Neighbor
    Once Living in Snowy Mountains
    of Northern California Said An

    Unexpected Snow Storm Came
    in And Took The Power Away And

    While His Neighbor Tourists
    Were Able to Start Fires to
    Stay Warm Inside With
    Fireplaces of Course

    They Had No Generators
    And Were Afraid That All Their
    Frozen Food Will Spoil So My Neighbor
    Said He’d Be Right Over to Solve the issue

    Coming Without
    Any Generators
    They Asked
    What Did
    He Have
    to Provide the
    Energy to Fire up
    The Freezers to Protect
    The Frozen Foods Again

    He Said No Problem He Dutifully
    Went Outside And Buried The Food
    Containers in the Snow to Keep Them Frozen

    It’s True We May All
    Do Our Best to
    See the Yes
    in All
    No’s mY FRiEnD…

    For YeS iT iS What We Fear
    of DarK That May Be Our GREaTesT ‘Savior’..:)
