Growth

Growth

‘Calamities can bring growth

And Enlightenment,’ said the master

And he explained it thus:

‘Each day a bird would shelter in the

Withered branches of a tree

That stood in the middle of a

Vast deserted plain.

One day a whirlwind

Uprooted the tree,

Forcing the poor bird to fly

A hundred miles in search

Of shelter-till it finally came to a forest

Of fruit-laden trees.’

And he concluded:

‘If the withered tree had survived,

Nothing would have induced the bird

To give up its security and fly’
