Wings to fly and roots to grow - Dalai Lama
LESSON FOR PARENTS
In two independent houses,separated by a compound wall, two people were living, in one a retired person and in the other a techie.
They had planted identical saplings on either sides of the compound.
The techie used to give lot of water and manure to the plants.The retired,just small quantity of water and little manure.
The retired person's plant was a near normal but much luxuriant than his neighbor's.
One night there was a heavy rain with gusty wind.
Next morning both came out to see the fate of the plants.
To techie's surprise his plant had got uprooted where as his neighbor's was unharmed.
Techie asked the retired man as why his plant was uprooted despite such a good care where as the neighbor had hardly cared.
The retired person's answer should be a lesson for all of us.
*Look young man, you had supplied every thing a plant would need,in abundance and the plant did not have to go in search of it.Your roots did not have go down. I was supplying just enough to keep it alive. For the rest roots had to go down into the ground to fulfil it's needs.*
Since my roots were pretty deeply grounded they could withstand the onslaught of the nature.
The same applies to your children too. 🙏🙏
Most of us are unaware of this truth. 🙏🙏 Very good message ..
The more we care and give them more comforts and more money out of our ignorance, the less rooted they become and more lazy, less inclined to take on challenges. If we really care for our kids, let us allow them to take some decisions themselves, let them lean and earn it the hard way !!
Earlier Kerala CS Jiji Thomson used to quote from a Dalai Lama talk in most of his speeches, let us give our kids wings to fly (education, family etc..) and roots to stay firm (values, morals, belief in God etc..).
