A Lesson From A Farmer

A farmer’s corn always took first prize at the state fair. He had a habit of sharing his best corn seed with all the farmers in the neighbourhood. When he was asked how? He said, “If my neighbours grow inferior corn, the cross-pollination brings down the quality of my own corn. The wind picks up the pollen and carries it from field to field. That is why I am concerned that they plant only the very best."

A prevailing reality in our world is overpowering selfishness which is rusting beautiful humanity. "You are what your deep, driving desire is. As your desire is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny. " -Brihdaranyak Upanishad. “Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

"This person is my relative and that person is a stranger, says the small minded one, for the one who knows the truth, the whole world is a family." -Maha Upanishad
