Interesting stories

My mum forwarded this email to me. It's really thought-provoking:)

The Turtles

A turtle family decided to go on a picnic. The turtles, being naturally
slow about things, took seven years to prepare for their outing. Finally
the turtle family left home looking for a suitable place. During the
second year of their journey they found a place ideal for them at last!

For about six months they cleaned the area, unpacked the picnic basket,
and completed the arrangements. Then they discovered they had forgotten
the salt. A picnic without salt would be a disaster, they all agreed.
After a lengthy discussion, the youngest turtle was chosen to retrieve
the salt from home. Although he was the fastest of the slow moving
turtles, the little turtle whined, cried, and wobbled in his shell. He
agreed to go on one condition: that no one would eat until he returned.
The family consented and the little turtle left.

Three years passed and the
little turtle had not returned. Five years...six years... then on the
seventh year of his absence, the oldest turtle could no longer contain
his unger. He announced that he was going to eat and begun to unwrap a
sandwich. At that point the little turtle suddenly popped out from
behind a tree shouting, 'See! I knew you wouldn't wait. Now I am not
going to go get the salt.'

Some of us waste our time waiting for people to live up to our
expectations. We are so concerned about what others are doing that we
don't do anything ourselves.


The Frogs

A farmer came into town and asked the owner of a restaurant if he could
use a million frog legs. The restaurant owner was shocked and asked the
man where he could get so many frog legs! The farmer replied, 'There is
a pond near my house that is full of frogs - millions of them.
They all croak all night long and they are about to make me crazy!' So
the restaurant owner and the farmer made an agreement that the farmer
would deliver frogs to the restaurant, five hundred at a time for the
next several weeks.

The first week, the farmer returned to the restaurant looking rather
sheepish, with two scrawny little frogs. The restaurant owner said,
'Well... where are all the frogs?' The farmer said, 'I was mistaken.
There were only these two frogs in the pond. But they sure were making a
lot of noise!'

Next time you hear somebody criticizing or making fun of you, remember,
it's probably just a couple of noisy frogs. Also remember that problems
always seem bigger in the dark. Have you ever laid in your bed at night
worrying about things which seem almost overwhelming like a million
frogs croaking? Chances are pretty good that when the morning comes, and
you take a closer look, you'll wonder what all the fuss was about.


The Pretty Lady

Once upon a time a big monk and a little monk were traveling together.
They came to the bank of a river and found the bridge was damaged. They
had to wade across the river.. There was a pretty lady who was stuck at
the damaged bridge and couldn't cross the river. The big monk offered to
carry her across the river on his back.
The lady accepted. The little monk was shocked by the move of the big
monk. 'How can big brother carry a lady when we are supposed to avoid
all intimacy with females?' thought the little monk. But he kept quiet.
The big monk carried the lady across the river and the small monk
followed unhappily. When they crossed the river, the big monk let the
lady down and they parted ways with her.

All along the way for several miles, the little monk was very unhappy
with the act of the big monk. He was making up all kinds of acussations
about big monk in his head. This got him madder and madder. But he still
kept quiet. And the big monk had no inclination to explain his
situation. Finally, at a rest point many hours later, the little monk
could not stand it any further, he burst out angrily at the big monk.
'How can you claim yourself a devout monk, when you seize the first
opportunity to touch a female, especially when she is very pretty? All
your teachings to me make you a big hypocrite The big monk looked
surprised and said, 'I had put down the pretty lady at the river bank
many hours ago, how come you are still carrying her along?'

This very old Chinese Zen story reflects the thinking of many people
today. We encounter many unpleasant things in our life, they irritate us
and they make us angry. Sometimes, they cause us a lot of hurt,
sometimes they cause us to be bitter or jealous .. But like the little
monk, we are not willing to let them go away.We keep on carrying the
baggage of the 'pretty lady' with us.

We let them keep on coming back to hurt us, make us angry, make us
bitter and cause us a lot of agony.

Why? Simply because we are not willing to put down or let go of the
baggage of the 'pretty lady'. We should let go of the pretty lady
immediately after crossing the river, that is after the unpleasant event
is over. This will immediately remove all our agonies. There is no need
to be further hurt by the unpleasant event after it is over.

Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.
