Pear Tree & Seasons

There was once a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn an important lesson in life, So he sent them on a quest – to go and look at a pear tree that was a great distance away.

The First son went in the winter, the second in the spring, the third in summer and the youngest son in the fall. When they had all gone and come back, the father called them together to describe what they had seen.

The First son said : “The tree was ugly, bent and twisted.”

The Second son said : “No, it was covered with green buds and full of promise.”

The Third son disagreed, he said : “it was laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet and looked so beautiful, it was the most graceful thing I have ever seen.”

The last son disagreed with all of them, he said : “It was ripe and drooping with fruit, full of life and fulfillment.”

The man then explained to his sons that they were all right, because they had each seen but only one season in the tree’s life. He told them that you can’t judge a tree, or a person by only one season and that the essence of who they are and the pleasure,joy and love that come from that life can only be measure at the end, when all the seasons are up.

“If you give up when it’s winter, you will miss the promise of your spring, the beauty of your summer, the fulfillment of your fall”

Moral : We should learn not to judge things too quickly; rather to consider all the aspects & perspective while making any judgment. Everything and everyone has good sides; we only need to identify the same at the right thing….

  1. Oh how lovely that one could post something as positive as this. I often seek people who could understand the seasons in one’s life. It’s a wonderful feeling to be understood. One doesn’t have to fear because seasons change… and we are always capable of transformation 😉

    Thanks Harshal 😉
