A householder started reconditioning the house by breaking open the wall. Usually, between the wooden walls, there will be hallow space in the Japanese house. He found a lizard stuck up there, because a nail hammered to its feet from outside.
He felt very much pity once he saw it and also curiously checked the nail to know what happened. Surprisingly he found that , when the house was first built, it was nailed and the house was constructed 10 years ago.
Just imagine how a lizard survived in such condition!!!!
It was really shocking and mind blowing!
He was also curious to know how that lizard survived for 10 years without moving. So he stopped his work and started observing the lizard. Suddenly from somewhere another lizard came with food in its mouth.
He was amazed and felt very sensitive towards them by knowing that from the past 10 years another lizard has been feeding to this struck lizard.
It was a great wonder to know that for 10 years it has been serving kindly without loosing hope on its partner.
Just think once whether you can do same to your partner or mother who has given birth to you, or father, or sister, or brother or your friends etc ?
Even though they cannot talk, these small creatures are blessed with loving and kind heart which is being missed in this modern human society. Distance between human beings is growing more as the information and communication technology advances.
It is our responsibility to look into ourselves and check whether we are really enhancing our lives or destroying.
Never say you are busy when someone really needs you.
You may have the entire world at your feet..But you might be the only world to them.
Just remember that before you say something to the others, "It takes a moment to break but an entire life to make".
Utilizing brain's intellect is sufficient to survive but a very much utilization of loving heart is needed to live and let others live.
Ultimately, Love is an ocean which accepts all the rivers as they are without bothering about their origins.
