Bed Time Story #9: Lesson on Life


Hai Incik Bloggie!

Sebelum tidur...ceq nak share satu kisah yang memberi makna tersurat dan tersirat yang amat mendalam...

Once upon a time...


There was a man 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 man 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 your spring, the beauty of your summer, fulfillment of your fall. 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 or later.


Kadang-kadang dalam kehidupan kita selalu melihat sesuatu dari sebahagian perspektif or one side or just one angle. But then, there are another 359 degree with another 5 sides left unseen. Kita manusia yang dijadikan sempurna dalam ketidaksempurnaan.  For example, when we look at the coin, we can't look at both sides simultaneously. However, it's possible for us to look at both sides of the coins at 'different time'. We can choose which side to look at first then follow by the other side. Same goes for life. 

Sometimes, apa yang tersurat tu tak sama dengan apa yang tersirat...

Admit that I'm not perfect, cause I'm only human *tarik Gaya Christina Perry gituh! *. Just a simple reminder to myself, don't judge people based on their past. We never know, one fine day orang tu akan jadi lebih baik dari kita. Kerana kita manusia yang dijadikan 'sempurna' dalam 'ketidaksempurnaan'. Belajar dari 'ketidaksempurnaan' dapat menjadikan kita manusia yang sebenar manusia.

That's all from me. Sedikit 'contemplation' sebelum tidur. Semoga esok masih ada untuk kita.

Selamat malam dunia penuh pancaroba.

Till we meet again Incik Bloggie!
