Insight - "Shemushi": [13] Intelligent Skill

Intelligent Skill

Purposeful and well intended hard work is far more rewarding than work with purposeless. Work without purpose makes a man a drifter. We human beings should work after deliberation. This makes our work secure, gives maximum benefit and uses time efficiently. Animals and Birds also use their brain to their advantage.

Once there was a crow. The crow was very thirsty. It flew around looking for water. After searching for a long time, it finally spotted a jug of water. As it flew closer to the jug, it saw that it had very little water in it. The water was at the very bottom. As soon as he saw the water, it became very happy. It wanted to drink it right away. It put his beak inside the jug, but the water was out of reach, the crow's beak could not reach it. It kept on trying, but could not reach it. While it was trying, it got an idea on how to reach the water. With his beak it carried small stones and dropped them inside the jug. As it dropped the stones inside the jug, the water started to rise. When all of the water was at the top, the crow drank the water. It drank the water very happily. It drank until it was not thirsty anymore. When it was done, it flew away feeling happy. Where there is a will there is a way.
