A Story- Moral learnt from the ants

Not open for further replies.

One Sunday Morning,
a Wealthy Man sat in his balcony enjoying Sunshine and his Coffee when a little ANT caught his eye which was going from one side to the other side of the balcony carrying
a Big Leaf several times more than its size.

The Man watched it for more than an hour.
He saw that the Ant faced Many Impediments during its journey, paused, took a diversion and then continued towards Destination.

At one point the Tiny Creature came across
a Crack in the Floor.

It Paused for a little while, Analyzed and
then Laid the huge leaf over the crack,
Walked over the leaf, Picked the Leaf
on the other side then Continued its JOURNEY.

The Man was Captivated by the Cleverness of the ANT, one of God's Tiniest Creatures.

The incident left the Man in awe and
Forced him to Contemplate over the
Miracle of Creation.
It showed the Greatness of the Creator.

In front of his eyes there was this Tiny Creature of God, lacking in size yet equipped with
a Brain to Analyze, Contemplate, Reason, Explore, Discover and OVERCOME.

Along with all these Capabilities,
the Man also noticed that this Tiny Creature shared some Human Shortcomings.

The Man saw about an hour later,
the Creature had reached its Destination –
a tiny hole in the floor which was entrance to its underground dwelling.

And it was at this point that the Ant's Shortcoming that it shared with the Man
was revealed.

How could the Ant carry into the tiny hole
the large leaf that it had managed to carefully bring to the Destination?
It simply couldn't!

So the Tiny Creature, after all the Painstaking and Hard Work and Exercising Great Skills, Overcoming all the Difficulties along the way, just left behind the Large Leaf and
Went Home Empty-Handed.

The Ant had not thought about the End
before it began its Challenging Journey and
in the End the Large Leaf was nothing more than a Burden to it.

The Creature had NO OPTION,
but to Leave it Behind to Reach its Destination.

The Man Learned a Great Lesson that DAY.

Isn't that the Truth about OUR LIVES?

We worry about our Family,
We worry about our Job,
We worry about how to earn more Money,
We worry about where we should Live –
5 bedroom or 6 bedroom house,
What kind of Vehicle to Buy –
a Mercedes or BMW or a Porsche,
What kind of Dresses to wear,
all sorts of things, only to ABANDON all these things when we reach Our Destination –

We don't realize in our Life's Journey
that these are just BURDENS that we are carrying with Utmost Care and Fear of Losing them, only to find that at the end,
they are Useless and We can't take them
With US.....
