Since time immemorial, stories have always been a way to pass along an important message. Here is one such story…
Once after a high tide, several star fishes were strewn along a coastline. An early morning visitor saw these fishes and started picking them up one by one and throwing them back in the sea. Soon another man came along the beach for his morning walk and saw the first guy pick up these star fishes.
He asked him, "Why are you doing this? There are thousands of them. You will never get thru all of them. How does it matter?" The first man did not say anything, bent down and picked up another star fish and put it back in the water.
He then turned around and replied- "it mattered to that one".
It does not have to be something big- like donating large sums of money or some other grand gesture! It can be a simple and single act of kindness- it may not seem much in the grand scheme of things- but it will have a profound impact, to that one situation, that one person (or animal)… to that piece of life.
Because- we are all connected in this cosmos!! Each one of us to everyone else… and when we truly understand this profound wisdom, we realize that you, me and everyone… everything around us- we are all ultimately a piece of this grand scheme of existence called- LIFE.
Always remember that every action we do impacts someone. So, it is important that we are aware of how and what we choose to do each moment...
