Evolution

Moses once passed by a farm and saw a peasant boy talking to himself, saying, «O Lord, Thou art so good and kind that I feel if Thou wert here by me I would take good care of Thee, more than of all my sheep, more than of all my fowls. In the rain I would keep Thee under the roof of my grass shed; when it was cold I would cover Thee with my blanket; and in the heat of the sun I would take Thee to bathe in the brook. I would give Thee bread of manna and would give Thee buttermilk to drink, and to entertain Thee I would sing and dance and play my flute. O Lord my God, if Thou wouldst only listen to this and come and see how I would tend Thee.»
Moses was amused to listen to all this, and, as the deliverer of the divine message, he said, «How impertinent on thy part, O boy, to limit the Unlimited One, God, the Lord of hosts, who is beyond form and color and the perception and comprehension of man.»
The boy became disheartened and full of fear at what he had done. But immediately a revelation came to Moses:
«We are not pleased with this, O Moses, for We have sent Thee to unite Our separated ones with Us, not to disunite. Speak to everyone according to his evolution.»

Vadan

There are some who walk, some who creep, some who run, and some who fly; and yet all men are said to be alike.

Reflection

One cannot be of any help by emphasizing the wrong-doings of another; it is only through one's own example that one can be of help. In any case, never allow oneself to turn a friend into an enemy, but make every effort to turn an enemy into a friend.
