The Grasshopper and Eagle

Once upon a time there was a grasshopper, who was one of the best hoppers in the land. She began teaching other grasshoppers how to hop.
One day set met an eagle. She wanted to teach the eagle how to hop. But he just said, "There is no need." She kept trying, but the eagle politely refused. The grasshopper was very angry and cursed the eagle that it would never learn hopping.
Now the eagle began hopping. The grasshopper was surprised.
The grasshopper asked the eagle. "How is it that you know how to hop and yet you talk of flying?
"Hopping is useful, but when you can fly, it is no longer necessary" said the eagle.
The grasshoppers asked, "What's it like to fly?"
“Come on! I will take you to show what is like flying.” said the eagle. The eagle gently took the grasshopper in his claw. With a few beats of his wings they were up in the sky. Circling overhead, the grasshopper could see the mountains, rivers and ocean, far beyond the familiar grass fields.
The eagle was telling, "When I fly, I watch everything as it happens without any effort on my part. Most importantly I have exceptional ability to focus on prey from great heights. I can foresee any imminent danger like storm or cyclone, whenever there is a slightest turbulence in the sky”.
Careful not to go too high, the eagle soon returned the grasshopper to the ground. The grasshopper understood what the eagle was trying to tell.
With all limitations, the grasshopper is now learning to fly.

"This Short Story can used for multiple scenarios and for driving the group to various conclusions. Can You think of some? The true skills lie in the ability to use one tool for different objectives."

The Pretty Lady

Once upon a time a big monk and a little monk were traveling together. They came to the bank of a river and found the bridge was damaged. They had to wade across the river. There was a pretty lady who was stuck at the damaged bridge and couldn’t cross the river. The big monk offered to carry her across the river on his back. The lady accepted.
The little monk was shocked by the move of the big monk. ‘How can big brother carry a lady when we are supposed to avoid all intimacy with females?’ thought the little monk. But he kept quiet. The big monk carried the lady across the river and the small monk followed unhappily. When they crossed the
river, the big monk let the lady down and they parted ways with her.
All along the way for several miles, the little monk was very unhappy with the act of the big monk. He was making up all kinds of accusations about big monk in his head. This got him madder and madder. But he still kept quiet. And the big monk had no inclination to explain his situation.
Finally, at a rest point many hours later, the little monk could not stand it any further, he burst out angrily at the big monk.‘How can you claim yourself a devout monk, when you seize the first opportunity to touch a female, especially when she is very pretty? All your teachings to me make you a big hypocrite. The big monk looked surprised and said, ‘I had put down the pretty lady at the river bank many hours ago, how come you are still carrying her along?’
About the story
This very old Chinese Zen story reflects the thinking of many people today. We encounter many unpleasant things in our life. They irritate us and they make us angry. Sometimes, they cause us a lot of hurt, sometimes they cause us to be bitter or jealous. But like the little monk, we are not willing to let them go away. We keep on carrying the baggage of the 'pretty lady' with us. We let them keep on coming back to hurt us, make us angry, make us bitter and cause us a lot of agony. Why ? Simply because we are not willing to put down or let go of the baggage of the 'pretty lady'. We should let go of the pretty lady immediately after crossing the river, that is after the unpleasant event is over. This will immediately remove all our agonies. There is no need to be further hurt by the unpleasant event after it is over.
