LESSON OF THE WEEK : Show a little kindness

Once upon a time, a man had heard that in a foreign place far away, there was a holy flame burning. So he got up and left his home to find the holy flame and bring it back home to his house. He thought :"When i have this light, then i will have happiness and life and all the people i love will have it too. "

He traveled far, far away and finally found the holy flame, with which he lit his light. On his way back he had only one worry :" That his light could go out. "

On his way home he met someone who was freezing and didn't have any fire and who begged him to give him some of his fire. The man with the light hesitated for a  moment. Wasn't his light too precious, too holy to be given away for something ordinary like that? Despite these doubts, he decided to give some of his light to the one who was freezing in the darkness.

The man continued his journey home and when he had almost reached his house, a terrible thunderstorm started. He tried to protect his light from the rain and the storm, but at the end his light went out.
To return the long way back to the place where the holy flame was burning was impossible, he wouldn't have had enough strength to go back that far but he was strong enough to return to the man whom he had helped on his way home, and with his light he could light his own again.

It is foolish to be selfish and self-centered. You must understand that the more you show love to others, the more beautiful your life will become. The is one reality you must not forget this year.

One love i sight you all.
