Two Grains
(by Anna Chui)

Two grains were lying side by side on the fertile soil. The first grain said: "I want to grow up! I want to put down roots deep into the ground and sprout from the ground. I dream to blossom in delicate buds and proclaim the coming of spring. I want to feel the warm rays of sun and the dew drops on my petals!"

This grain grew up and became a beautiful flower.

The second grain said: "I'm afraid. If I put down my roots into the ground, I don't know what they will face there. If I grow tender stems, they can be damaged by wind. And if there will be flowers , they may be disrupted . So I'd rather wait for the safer time.

The second grain was waiting, while the chicken that passed by pecked at it and ate it.

The story is easy to understand, right? If you have your dream in your mind, do something with it. The first small step you take will make a great difference. If you just wait for the perfect conditions and keep worrying about what obstacles you may face, you'll end up doing nothing, and your dream will die.

Stop killing your dreams! Believe in yourself and take your very first step, even though it's a tiny little step!

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.

Dear God,        
        You inspire our Dreams, why would we think You wouldn't help us to achieve them?

You ALL are Within the Infinitely Loving Embrace of our Universal Parent,
