Life…Echo…

A man and his son were walking in the forest.
Suddenly the boy trips and feeling a sharp pain he screams,  “Ahhhhh.”
Surprised, he hears a voice coming from the mountain,  “Ahhhhh!”
Filled with curiosity, he screams:
“Who are you?”,
but the only answer he receives is:
“Who are you?”

This makes him angry, so he screams:
“You are a coward!”,
and the voice answers:
“You are a coward!”

He looks at his father, asking,
“Dad, what is going on?”
“Son,” the man replies, “pay attention!”
Then he screams, “I admire you!”
The voice answers: “I admire you!”

The father shouts, “You are wonderful!”,
and the voice answers:
“You are wonderful!”

The boy is surprised, but still can’t understand what is going on.
Then the father explains,
“People call this ‘ECHO’,
but truly it is ‘LIFE!’ Life always gives you back what you give out!
Life is a mirror of your actions.
If you want more love, give more love!
If you want more kindness, give more kindness!
If you want understanding and respect, give understanding and respect!
If you want people to be patient and respectful to you, give patience and respect!
This rule of nature applies to every aspect of our lives.”

Life always gives you back what you give out.
Your life is not a coincidence, but a mirror of your own doings.

Knowing where to hit

Just a little story with a moral I felt like sharing. Enjoy!

A small factory that had been in business only a couple of years had to cease operations when a vital piece of machinery broke down. The firm’s own mechanics worked and worked but couldn’t get the thing running again. Finally, in desperation, they called the company that built the machine. All the company mechanics were busy at the time but it happened that one of the designers of the machine was in the office that day. They asked if it would be alright to send him out to take a look at the equipment. “That would be fine. We’re desperate,” was the immediate answer. When the machine’s designer arrived, he looked the situation over for a few minutes and then took a hammer and tapped the machine in a certain spot and it started right up. The watching mechanics were surprised, but the biggest surprise came when the bill for services was submitted. The designer charged $500 for his services. The plant owner hit the ceiling and demanded an itemized bill. That was no problem. The designer submitted a written, itemized bill which read: “$10.00 for hitting machine; $490.00 for knowing where to hit it.”
