Story-day is for cultural exploration, puraanas and parables and finding out about leading lights in spiritual philosophy.
A short but pertinent fable to start the year. Think on how this applies to commitment to everything one undertakes in life.
The Boy and the Nettles
A BOY was stung by a Nettle. He ran home and told his Mother, saying, "Although it hurts me very much, I only touched it gently."
"That was just why it stung you," said his Mother. "The next time you touch a Nettle, grasp it boldly, and it will be soft as silk to your hand, and not in the least hurt you."
Whatever you do, do with all your might.
