The Wish-Granting Tree (Posted by Priya Deelchand)

My dearest friends,

Hope you are all doing fantastic!

Here is a wonderful lesson that I would like to share with you today. 
The author of this story is unknown.

There was once a weary traveler who sat down to rest in the shade
of a tree. He did not know that the tree he rested upon was a
magic tree. It is called " The Wish-Granting Tree."

Seated on the hard ground, he thought how pleasant it would
be if he can sleep in a soft bed. Instantly, a bed appeared before
him. Astonished, the man immediately climbed onto the bed. Then,
he thought that it would be nice if there would be a beautiful
young girl beside him who would massage his sore legs. At that moment, a
young girl appeared before him and began massaging him.

"I'm so hungry," the man said to himself. "Having something
to eat now would be a great pleasure." Instantly, a table appeared
with delicious foods.
The man rejoiced and began eating and drinking to his heart's
content. His head spun a little and his eyelids grew heavy as
the wine took effect. He stretched himself and was thinking about
the wonderful events that took place on that extraordinary
"I'll sleep for an hour or two," he thought. "The worst that
could happen would be if a tiger wandered by while I'm asleep."
Instantly a tiger appeared and devoured the poor man.

You have a magic tree inside you, waiting to grant your wishes.
But be careful! The same tree can also make your negative thoughts
and fears come true. At the very least it will be influenced by
your negative thoughts, so that the good things you wish for do
not happen.

That's what worrying can do.

I wish with all my heart that you live a life free of worry,
negative thoughts and fear, in the shade and comfort of your
personal Wish-Granting Tree.

Have an excellent day filled with positive thoughts!

Much love,
