LEAF OF GETTING BETTER AND BETTER
Far far away behind a small hill, there was a meadow with a huge beautiful tree. The tree was unusual. It had sparkling leaves with exceptional power and branches so wild that reached into all magical lands. It attracted from a distance with an amazing scent that you could see. The tree had so much positive energy that its love, wisdom and warmth hugged the whole world.
A little boy named Mojo lived in the tree and he admired the inhabitants of the different lands. He loved their extraordinariness, amazing creativity and intelligence. Repeatedly encouraged by the tree to make new friends and to seek fascinating adventures, he shyly refused. In the tree, he felt very good and, above all, safe.
One day the tree was struck by lighting and lost most of its magical leaves. Mojo cried because the tree was no longer the same place. The moved tree comforted the boy and said that he could help him in reconstruction. He just had to leave and go into the world, and when he would acquire new skills he would receive the leaves that he would hang on the branches. When the tree would be filled with leaves, it would again be amazing. Mojo loved the tree so much that he agreed.
Mojo wandered through the various lands. He made friends with their inhabitants, learned exciting things and broadened his knowledge of the world. Fascinated by the new task, he forgot the fear. Discovering new and wonderful places and having fun with friends were amazing experiences for the boy.
When he noticed that the leaves had arrived, it left him feeling sad that the adventure would soon end. The tree calmed the boy down. In fact, it would never be full. Every time the boy hung a leaf, the branches grew. The tree gave the boy the understanding that there was something more precious than perfection. It was a gift of getting better and better. There’s nothing more unique than rediscovering your power each day, increase your knowledge, gaining experience and striving for perfection. But the way to achieve the aim is much more valuable than the goal itself. Mojo was very happy because he discovered the curiosity of the world and the satisfaction of learning something new.
Some time later he wondered if his adored tree was intentionally struck by lightning to make the boy aware of the power of his potential. And all this the tree did because of huge love for the boy...
