The Parable of the Two Frogs
A group of frogs were hopping contentedly through the woods, going about their frog business, when two of them fell into a deep pit. All of the other frogs gathered around the pit to see what could be done to help their companions. When they saw how deep the pit was, the rest of the dismayed group agreed that it was hopeless and told the two frogs in the pit that they should prepare themselves for their fate, because they were as good as dead. Unwilling to accept this terrible fate, the two frogs began to jump with all of their might. Some of the frogs shouted into the pit that it was hopeless, and that the two frogs wouldn’t be in that situation if they had been more careful, more obedient to the frog rules, and more responsible. The other frogs continued sorrowfully shouting that they should save their energy and give up. The two frogs continued jumping as hard as they could, and after several hours of desperate effort were quite weary. Finally, one of the frogs took heed to the calls of his fellows. Spent and disheartened, he quietly resolved himself to his fate, lay down at the bottom of the pit and died as the others looked on helpless. The other frog continued to jump with every ounce of energy he had, although his body was wracked with pain and he was completely exhausted. His companions began anew, yelling for him to accept his fate. The weary frog jumped harder and harder and – wonder of wonders! finally leapt so high that he sprang from the pit. Amazed, the other frogs celebrated his miraculous freedom and then gathering around him asked, “Why did you continue jumping when we told you it was impossible?” Reading their lips, the astonished frog explained to them that he was deaf, and that when he saw their gestures and shouting, he thought they were cheering him on. What he had perceived as encouragement inspired him to try harder and to succeed against all odds.
Words can be the most deadly or can be a wellspring of inspiration.
Be a beacon of light to those you encounter.
Encourage success with love and support allow others to experience the joy of what is possible in their lives. Life takes time and patience and misunderstanding and setbacks, and leaps forward and love.
May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace
Today. Now. Always.
May you hear all things people say as
encouraging words spoken in love
for your most highest good.
With Infinite Love and Gratitude
