A man found the cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and it could go no further.

So, the man decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon.  The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings.  The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time.

Neither happened!

In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shriveled wings. It was never was able to fly.  What the man, in his kindness and haste, did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening were Life's way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.

‘Love Thy Neighbour’ – Author unknown

The story is told of a farmer whose corn each year earned the winning prize at the state fair. One year, a reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew his corn. The farmer told the reporter that he shared his prize-winning seed corn with his neighbours.  When asked why the farmer explained: “The wind picks up the pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If the neighbours grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbours grow good corn.”

The same is true for the way we live our lives. If we wish to live in peace and harmony, we must help our neighbours do the same. If we desire to be loved, we must spread that love around. [read more]

Change. A word that many of us have grown used to. A word that many of us dread hearing, especially in the times that we are living in now. It is said that the only constant is change. We struggle with change because we have to learn to cope with a new environment, a new way of thinking, a new person in our lives, or a new set of circumstances.

However, I have always thought a little differently about change. Change is a concept that has been incredibly positive in our lives, more than we know. Without change, we wouldn’t be living together as one nation the way that we do today. Without change, we wouldn’t have learnt how to cope with difficult situations. Without change, we never would have learnt new skills. Without change, you never would have reaped the rewards from the risks you had to take. Without change, your children wouldn’t be where they are today. Without change, you wouldn’t be the person you are today. Without change, the caterpillar would never become a butterfly. [read more]

It was one of the coldest winters and many animals were dying because of the cold. The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep each other warm. This was a great way to protect themselves from cold and keep each of them warm; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.

After a while, they decided to distance themselves, but they too began to die due to cold. So, they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or choose death. Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions to receive the warmth of their togetherness. This way they were able to survive. [read more]

I am sure the three words “Happy New Year” were said far more carefully and with a fair amount of trepidation this year. As we move into another year of uncertainty, we need to hold on to the one thing that is so important to us at this stage - Family. We have learnt not to live such a fast-paced life and enjoy the comfort of home, from home cooking, playing games, and just enjoying the simple things of life again. [read more]

As we approach the end of the term, I would like every child to keep on dreaming. It does not matter how silly your dreams seem to others, go for it, and make it a reality.

Rocks, Pebbles, and Sand

Once a professor entered the classroom with a glass jar, rocks, pebbles, and sand. The students were amused to see what he was up to. First, he started filling the rock parts into the jar until he could not add any more. [read more]
