The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant
IF WE TALK TO EACH OTHER


A valley lay between two very tall mountains. On the valley floor was a forest of trees and shrubs, but apart from a few which rose above the rest, they all had the appearance of being withered and stunted. This was due to a very strong relentless wind which descended from the top of the mountain on the right and on the left. Only the sturdiest of plants were able to withstand this simultaneous attack from both sides. There were hardly any new seedlings because they were periodically forced to the ground.

A rider on a horse appeared in the forest one day and was astounded to see the damaged condition of the vegetation. He stayed there for a while to observe what was going on, and he noticed that the destructive winds descended in a very regular way from both mountain tops, so he decided to climb them both.

At the top of the mountain on the right, he discovered a very dedicated team of people activating an enormous pair of bellows. They worked in shifts so that wind was continually pumped into the valley. The rider asked why: WE LOVE NATURE MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE they replied. OUR LEADERS HAVE TOLD US THAT THE PLANTS NEED WIND SO THAT THEIR SEEDS ARE WELL SCATTERED.

At the top of the mountain on the left, the rider found another very dedicated team of workers, also working in shifts to keep a similar pair of bellows providing wind for the valley. Again, the rider asked why: WE LOVE NATURE MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE they replied. OUR LEADERS HAVE TOLD US THAT WIND IS NEEDED CONSTANTLY SO THAT THE OLD LEAVES WILL DROP AND MAKE WAY FOR THE NEW.

On hearing this the rider invited both groups down into the forest to see what was going on. Some refused to do this, as their loyalty to the cause prevented them from leaving their posts. Those who sensed the rider’s great distress decided to follow him down the mountain. When they learnt about the effects of the constant wind from both directions on their beloved trees, they collapsed and cried, knowing that their lack of curiosity and blind allegiance had contributed to this destruction.
