Journey of a young girl and a boy to find hidden gems. Adventurous,positive. Series contd.
Now magic flying carpet landed in a busy city. Many cars, bicycles, motorbikes were in a rush to get somewhere. People’s faces were gloomy and it seems none had time to greet each other, even look at each other, or look around them.
The weight of duty, given by their Father was heavy. They thought: “How on Earth we can complete the task? Whole Earth circumference is 41,436 km! We have got only 19 days?” From exhaustion they overslept on their carpet in the busy city street. Not a single person came to see them whole day and night. In the early dawn they got up fresh and well rested.
Seeing the beautiful rising sun, they observed a snail and an earthworm crossing the big busy road. It was not safe for a tiny snail and a fragile earthworm. Yesterday’s millions of cars, bicycles and people were coming back to street, hurrying, never looking under their feet, not seeing these little creatures. Kaimi and Isabella rushed and without hesitation picked them up and put them in the grass.
Thunderstorm, showering rain came right after. A beautiful rainbow over the whole horizon gave a majestic view. This confirmation of the Divine Assistance who they relied from the beginning gave them assurance that they are in the right path.
Although, they were hungry and sad, and slept in the street, they showed kindness to small creatures, which were even more helpless.
With a simple act of “kindness” came an understanding of its power. It became crystal clear for them that being kind to yourself, to others, to your surrounding gives you power of acceptance and healing. They were no longer sorrowful about sleeping in the streets, or being invisible to others.
“Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion”. Buddha
At so young age, being brought under wings of their loving Father they started missing home. Although, they were discovering the whole new life for themselves, sadness was crippling slowly into their hearts. They did not understand why, reasons and most importantly how they can bring balance in their lives again. Time of their innocence and naïve childhood was long gone. Sweetness of their blissful joy seemed a distant memory.
They found a park to rest after toils of the busy street. The bird was singing so beautifully for really long hours. Observing this little grey bird they thought:
«How this little bird sings so beautifully? It does not even have colorful feathers, is not so big or have built a house. Where does it get such power to sing for others?”
They realized with pain in their little hearts that “joy” is so essential and necessary in every minute of life!
Listening to the divine little bird’s song, their sadness caused by separation with their Father disappeared. They felt joyfulness in their hearts. Now they continued their journey with ease and joy.
Joy gives us wings! In times of joy our strength is more vital, our intellect keener, and our understanding less clouded. We seem better able to cope with the world and to find our sphere of usefulness.(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Paris Talks, p. 109)
