Laziness - The Jungle - Story
« on: February 05, 2013, 06:54:14 AM »
VALUES:  Laziness; Negativity; Lack of Motivation.

STORY:    In the centre of the country of Sri Lanka, there is a place where wonderful temples and palaces were recently discovered, hidden deep in the jungle. This astonishing empire had been built thousands of years ago by the very wise, hard-working ancestors of the Sri Lankan people and yet, till only a few years ago, nobody even knew they existed. The jungle had covered everything up,
towns, buildings, streets, roads, everything! How did this happen to the “buried cities” as they are now called?

A number of possible reasons have been suggested: maybe a terrible disease infected the people and everyone died; maybe the cities were invaded by enemy forces and everyone was either killed or ran away. However, there is no evidence to support these ideas.

Many researchers have come to a much more simple conclusion. In those days the people would have had to spend a great deal of time cutting back the jungle, keeping it out of their homes and towns. Eventually they became lazy and no longer worried about the jungle and, bit by bit, it swallowed up village after village. The villagers, instead of continuing to do the hard work, simply took the easy way out and moved on. They left behind their magnificent heritage.

The jungle had won.


TEACHING POINT:

Success and rewards only come as a result of hard work. Laziness will rob us of many blessings and what we get out of life depends on the effort
we put into our work.
