The Big Frog and the Little frog.

4 Jan

“A big, fat frog and a little frog fell into a milk pail with tall, slippery sides. They swam and swam for hours trying to get out. Exhausted, the big frog moaned, ” Little brother frog, I am giving up ! ” and he sank to the bottom of the pail. The little frog thought to himself ” If I give up I will die, so I must keep on swimming.” Two hours passed, and the little frog thought he could do no more. But as he thought of his dead brother frog, he roused his will, saying, ” To give up is certain death. I will keep on paddling until I die, if death is to come, but I will not give up trying, for while there is life there is still hope.”

Intoxicated with determination, the little frog kept on paddling. After hours, when he felt paralyzed with fatigue and could paddle no more, he suddenly felt a big lump under his feet. His incessant paddling had churned the milk into butter ! Standing on the butter mound with great joy, the little frog leaped from the milk pail to freedom.

Remember, we are all in the slippery milk pail of life, trying to get free from our troubles like the two frogs. Most people give up trying and fail like the big frog. But we must learn to persevere in our effort toward one goal, as the little frog did. Then, we shall churn an opportunity by our God-guided,unflinching will power, and we will be able to hop out of the milk pail of trials onto the safe ground of eternal success. By not giving up, we develop will power, and win in everything we undertake. “

    ― Paramahansa Yogananda

The great Winston Churchill said ” Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never— in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”

Never give up. Never. Never. Never.

The caveat as the great leader said ” except to convictions of honor and good sense.” This is important too..

I have a  humble  conjured philosophy of  “love and fighting spirit “. I feel both are important and not mutually exclusive. Love must permeate all matters especially life. We must fight for our work and our dignity. We must not mix  the too then. We can have grace and  also be a warrior ( fighter).

I am a little frog, sometimes the pressure is too much, have held on……so watch this space, just watch 🙂

Good night friends! Never give up! May light and power be always with you. God bless! Have a lovely day. Thank you!
