To instill the positive attitude in you, we are here with the story that mesmerises you with its positivity.
Two seeds – power
A long time ago, a farmer laid two seeds at a common place. He added suitable manusre, fertilisers, and water into them. He took care of both and watered the plants daily. Both of the seeds got impressed with the farmer's care and love.
But, both of the seeds had different opinions about their growth. One of the seeds wanted to grow rapidly and wished to touch the sky as soon as possible. Whilst the second seed was afraid to open its buds, he thought if he grew, then a snail would eat him.
As time passed, the first seed grew and became tall. He spread his roots deep into the soil. Now, he was able to quench his thirst with his widespread roots. Soon, beautiful flowers bloomed that fascinated each passer-by as the dew on its petals shone with the sunlight.
On the other hand, the second seed did not grow because of his negative attitude and petrified nature. As he was always afraid of damaging his delicate sprouts by the hard soil, he could not spread his roots.
One day, the growing plant asked the little one, “Why do you not grow? It's been years since the farmers laid both of us. If you need any help, please let me know. I would be happy to serve you.” But the little one once tried to ignore him and sooner he replied, “If I send my roots into the ground below, I don't know what I will encounter in the dark. And if I were to open my blossoms, a small child may pull me from the ground. No, it is much better for me to wait until it is safe."
Then, one day, a hen and her brood of chicks wandered and looked for food. They found the waiting seed and they ate it.
The story teaches us the most important lesson of being optimistic. Those who have a positive attitude towards life and dream to grow will prosper, whilst those who carry negative attitudes and refuse to take risks will eventually fail.
Which came first, the plant or the seed? According to many scientists, plants come first.
The study of the seeds is known as spermology.
The Great Basin Bristlecone Pine is the oldest tree and can reach an age of over 5,000 years old.
