Last night, while I was editing my community research, PM told me a very inspiring story from a book that she’s reading. Well, I’m really a butterfly fan, but I think moths have a good story to tell.
You see there was a child who found a moth cocoon. Curious and amazed, he wanted to see the moth break through and fly, so the child took it home and stared at it all the time.
When the cocoon finally start to crack, he stared at it as the moth came struggling so hard to get out. Every second was torture. The little moth seem so tired and dying. Seeing this, the child took his scissors and cut through the cocoon to help the moth out. But as the cocoon split in two, the little moth’s body is now visible, one of it’s wings are swollen and its feet deformed. It couldn’t fly, nor even stand on its own.
Why did it happen? the answer is becuase the child helped him out. A moth has to struggle through its cocoon to push all the fluids in its wings in order to fly. But because the child was in pitty of its stuggle to live, the moth will never learn and experience how to fly, but instead all it could do is crawl all through out its life.
As I pondered through this short story my mind was able to burn some neurons to come up with great understanding. Humans indeed are like moths. Struggles will make you stronger. Hardships will make you stand on your own. Pain will entirely hurt, but it’s only when you experience pain and suffering that you will enjoy the delight of happiness and the blessings of everyday life.
Think about it.
Life is beautiful.
God bless us all! 🙂
