The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant

A small shabby travelling circus in a distant country was unpacking at a new location. The bear-tamer was training a large old bear with a stumbling gait and dishevelled fur. To make it “dance” on two legs, the trainer hung a carrot on a string and dangled it in front of the bear’s nose. The bear was immediately hypnotised by the carrot and followed it wherever it went in the hope of getting its next meal. It was only after a long time passed, that the trainer actually allowed the bear to get hold of the carrot. On finding that the carrot did not satisfy his hunger, the bear was extremely disappointed.

In his anger, the bear ran off to the forest where he discovered a boy in a clearing. The boy offered him food, and the bear was faced with a dilemma. He was so hungry by now that he could have eaten the boy in one bite, which would be more satisfying than eating the food the boy offered him. On the other hand, maybe the boy would become his friend, and provide him with food on a regular basis.

The bear decided to graciously accept the food, and he and the boy became the best of friends. The trainer lost his source of income, just as he had lost his kindness toward animals. When he saw the close friendship shared between the bear and the boy, he learnt that he had acted in a reprehensible way, and he asked the bear for forgiveness.
