Looking at different perspective

I was reading on the very respectful japanese author and entrepreneur-江本勝博士Masaru Emoto's diary in his website. And i found this very meaningful article "Lesson of life". It's a shame that I had lived in this world for almost 30 years but i have never come across this ethic. It is so simple and it can be understood from nature. Nature always has a lesson to tell and i tend to forget to pay attention to the most important thing in life.

Lessons on Life
There was an Indian Chief who had four sons.
He wanted his sons to learn not to judge things too quickly.
So he sent them each on a quest, in turn,
to go and look at a pear tree that was a great distance away.

The first son went in the Winter, the second in the Spring,
the third in Summer, and the youngest son in the Fall.
When they had all gone and come back, he called them
together to describe what they had seen.

The first son said that the tree
was ugly, bent, and twisted.

The second son said no, it was covered
with green buds and full of promise.

The third son disagreed; he said it was
laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet
and looked so beautiful, it was the most
graceful thing he had ever seen.

The last son disagreed with all of them;
he said it was ripe and drooping with fruit,
full of life and fulfillment.

The Chief then explained to his
sons that they were all right,
because they had each seen but only
one season in the tree's life.

He told them that you cannot
judge a tree, or a person,
by only one season,
And that the essence of who
they are and the pleasure, joy,
and love that come from that life
can only be measured at the end,
when all the seasons are up.

If you give up when it's Winter,
you will miss the promise of
Spring, the beauty of Summer,
and the fulfillment of Fall.

Moral of the story:
Don't let the pain of one season
destroy the joy of all the rest.
Don't judge life by one difficult season.
Persevere through the difficult patches
and better times are sure to come some time.

Live Simply
Love Generously
Care Deeply
Speak Kindly, &
Leave the Rest to God
Happiness keeps You Sweet,
Trials keep You Strong,
Sorrows keep You Human,
Failures keep You Humble,
Success keeps You Glowing,
But Only God keeps You Going!
