Push the Cow
A teacher of the wisdom took a walk by a forest with his faithful disciple, when he saw the distant spot a site of poor appearance, and decided to make a brief visit to the place. During the long walk he commented to the apprentice on the importance of the visits, also to meet and the opportunities learning that we have of these experiences.
Arriving at the place he stated the poverty of the site, the inhabitants, and three children, the wood house, dressed with dirty and torn clothes, without footwear. Then one came near the gentleman, apparently the family father and he asked to him: In this place do not exist either possibilities of work nor points of commerce, how make you and their family to survive here? The gentleman responded: My Friend, we have a cow that gives us several liters of milk every day.
A part of the product we sell it or we changed it by other nutritional sorts in the neighboring city and with the other part we produce cheese, curd, etc., for our consumption and thus it is as we are surviving.
The wise person thanked for the information, He contemplate the place for a moment, soon he took leave and he went away.
In middle of the way, he turned around towards his faithful disciple and he ordered to him: look for the cow, take it to the precipice of there opposite and push it to the precipice. The frightened young person saw the teacher and he questioned to him on the fact that the cow was the means of subsistence of that family, but he perceived the absolute silence of the teacher, went carry out an order. So he pushed the cow by the precipice and he saw it die.
That scene was recorded in the memory of that young one during some years. A beautiful day the young person solved to leave everything what he had learned and to return to that place and to tell everything to the family, to request pardon and to help them.
Thus he did it, and as one came near to the place saw everything very pretty, with flowery trees, everything inhabited, with car in the garage of tremendous house and some children playing in the garden. The young person felt sad and desperate imagining that that humble family had to sell the land to survive, he sped up and arriving there, he was received by a very likeable gentleman, the young person I ask for the family that lived there does about four years, the gentleman responded that they continued living there.
Frightened the young person he entered running the house and he confirmed that he was the same family who visited some years ago with the teacher. He praised the place and he ask to the gentleman (the owner of the cow): How he made to improve this place and to change of life?
The excited gentleman responded to him: we had a cow that fell by the precipice and died, of in ahead we saw ourselves there in the necessity to make other things and to develop other abilities that we did not know that we had, thus we achieveed the success that their eyes glimpse now.
We had a cow that provided some basic thing to us for our survival which is a coexistence with the routine...
