As we sow so we reap

I came across a beautiful story on internet. The story follows as.....
"A son and his father were walking on the mountains. Suddenly, his son falls and hurts himself. He screams out of pain: "Aaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!"
To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain: "Aaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!" Curious, he yells: "Who are you?" He receives the answer: "Who are you?"
And then he screams to the mountain: "I admire you!" The voice answers: "I admire you!"
Angered at the response, he screams: "Coward!" He receives the answer: "Coward!"
He looks to his father and asks: "What's going on?" The father smiles and says: "My son, pay attention." The man screams: "You are a champion!" Another voice answers: "You are a champion!" The boy is surprised, but could not understand. Then the father explains: "People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE. It gives you back everything you say or do. Our life is simply a reflection of our actions. If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart. If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence. This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life. Life will give you back everything you have given to it."

The moral of the story is..........."YOUR LIFE IS NOT A COINCIDENCE. IT'S A REFLECTION OF YOUR ACTIONS!". In truth the Newton's theory that "Every action has an equal and opposite reaction" is very much applicable in life too. What we think, say and do has a boomerang effect upon our life. The actions we do is surely reflected in our lives.

This is the natural law of the universe- "as we sow so will we reap". If we sow the seed of a mango, we get mango in return. If we sow the seed of a chilly, we get back chillis only and not mangos. Similarly, if we befriend, we will be befriended; if we love we will be loved. 

Family and friends enrich our lives more than any amount of wealth. We need to make continual investments of friendliness, affection and love to keep the system fully functioning. But we are all human beings and we don't love all the time. Sometimes we hate, and rebuke to our loved ones- may be we say things which we really don't mean, but it amounts to a withdrwal from the love account. What we take out, need to be redeposited as early as possible.

Similarly, hatred, jealousy, idleness and insincerity, all our negative traits have profound negative impacts on our lives. It may not be palpable soon. The effect may come later in different forms and shapes to engrave our lives. Effects of good deeds may also be subject to time and nourishment as caring a plant. We can't force a seed to grow immediately. We can't compel a flower to bloom either. These things depend on the seed type and condition of the environment. We should not get dejected and must not stop showing good seeds...... because the return must come in our lives may be sooner or later..........
