(Moral lesson) The Donkey

  1. (Moral lesson) The Donkey


    One day a farmer's donkey fell into a well. The animal
    cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out
    what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was too old, and
    the well was dry and needed to be filled anyway. So he
    invited all his neighbors to come over and help him fill the
    well. They each grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt
    into the well.


    At first, the donkey realized what has happening and cried
    horribly.


    Then, to everyone's amazement he fell silent. A few shovel
    loads later, the farmer looked down the well and was
    astonished at what he saw. As every shovel of dirt hit this
    back, the donkey would shake the dirt off and take a step
    up.


    As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of
    the animal he continued to shake it off and step up. Pretty
    soon the donkey stepped up and over the edge of the well and
    trotted off.


    THE MORAL

    Life is going to shovel dirt upon you, all kinds of dirt.
    The trick to getting out of the well is to shake the dirt
    off and step up. Each of our troubles is a stepping stone.
    We can get out of the deepest troubles just by not stopping
    and never giving up! Shake if off and take a step up!


    Remember five simple rules to happiness:
    1. Free your heart from hatred
    2. Free your mind from worry
    3. Live Simply
    4. Give More
    5. Expect Less

    Reality Check

    O.K. that's enough of that BS...The donkey later came back,
    caught the farmer out in the field and kicked the **** out
    him. Then he went over to each of his neighbors farms and
    kicked the **** out of them for helping.


    The Real Moral

    When you try to cover your ass, it always comes back to get
    you.
