It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold.
The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm.
This way they covered and protected themselves, but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.
After awhile, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen. So, they had to make a choice: accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth.
Wisely, they decided to get back together and work it out. They learned to live with the little wounds caused by their close relationship in order to stay warm and survive.
Moral of the Story:
The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person’s good qualities.
We must learn to accept each other and to live together. We all have to share this planet and its resources. By following proper principles and The Natural Laws we can all share this planet’s natural resources and abundance. We must find the most appropriate and beneficial ways to live in accordance with nature and the earth, not at the expense of each other or our planet.
Kindness, gentleness and compassion……..
