DONKEYS, MORE THAN DONKEYS

4년 전

  Two donkeys were tied together. On either side, about five meters away, its owner had put two heaps of green and rich alfalfa. Clumsy, like donkeys that were, beset by hunger, they insisted on eating each one of the pile that they had closer. So many were the cravings to eat, both the effort to throw each one by his side, so much the stubbornness and stubbornness and so much his selfishness, that they ran out without tasting anything. A point were, each on his side, to touch with his nose the grass opposite but failed. That increased his suffering, his anguish and his useless effort.  

  They spent an hour, until, exhausted by hunger, work and anger, fell to the ground two fingers (two fingers only!) Of alfalfa.  

  Two cows that passed by, in marvelous camaraderie, stopped and, with intelligent parsimony, liquidated one of the piles and, afterwards, with identical understanding, they finished with the second one.

Sometimes we are too busy in life, caring about image and being someone who we are not, and miss the true sense of life and those around us. Wake up and smell the alfalfa! Love it!😀

Lovely stories, but truly, thats what we are.selfish. Not considering others. All we need is live and let live. Two dumb camels cause of their lack ofnunderstanding, they missed out on their food, given it out to passers by. Nice story nice analogy of life.
