He said, O man!
He said, O man, learn from the trees.
When somebody cuts off a branch
the tree does not hit back.
When somebody throws stones at them,
they yield fruit in exchange.
They take the hot sun on their heads
and provide shade to the weary traveler.
They give the perfume of their flowers
without asking whether you deserve it or not.
O man, learn from the trees!
When they are crowded in the forest,
they do not fight with each other,
they adjust to each other and share the sunshine.
That is what life would be like if we had no egos!
We have a bigger problem than trees and animals.
Nature has completely determined life for them.
We have been granted some choice,
but we are misusing the choice!
Man learn from the Trees!
By an Indian poet.
