A LITTLE BOY’S EXPERIENCE
A little boy, just about seven years, went for a walk with his dad. As they walked, little the but inquisitive boy begun asking questions about almost everything he saw or heard. Very soon, they (the boy and his father) reached a very steep valley.
Humbled by fear of this sight, the little boy asked in a seemingly loud voice “Dad what is this?” Suddenly, he hears a little voice (just like his) ask “Dad what is this?” With surprise, he looked around to see who was hiding in the mountains and imitating exactly what he said.
“Who are you?” he asked as he looked. “Who are you?” replied the voice. “Show your face you coward”, he screamed again. “Show your face you coward” the voice replied once more. At this point he was so filled with fear and surprise that he couldn’t walk again. “Dad, what was that?” he asked as he turned to see if his father was still with him. Surprisingly again, the voice repeated this same question.
His dad, who could see what his little boy was going through, answered “it is called and echo”. “It repeats exactly what you say.” he continued, “it shouted at you because you did that first. That is how life is. It will give back whatever you give to it.”
To ensure that this little boy understood what he meant, he told the boy, ” Now, shout to it and say ‘You are a Champion!” The little boy shouted, “You are a champion!” and voice replied,”you are a champion!” He shouted to it again and again and again now in a very polite and happy manner and just as his father said, it repeated exactly so.
The lesson from this self-explanatory story is that, just like the echo, the world will give back to you just what you give to it first. This is a simple natural law. Those who give receive; those who kill are killed; those who love are loved, and so on.
To enjoy what this life has for you, you first need to enjoy been good to it. Just try it now and tell share your experiences.
