Food for thought
by Ivy Wu
Once upon a time, there was a little caterpillar. He crawled along until he ran into a big sky-high pile of caterpillars. He asked," What are you all doing? What's up there?" The caterpillars answered, "Don't know. Just climb up and you will see once you are on the top." So, the little caterpillar climbed. He stepped on one's shoulder, shoved some off, and kicked off whoever got in his way. Finally, he reached the very top. Guess what he saw? Nothing!
Just then, a beautiful butterfly flew by. The little caterpillar asked, "Who are you and how did you get here?" Butterfly said, "Well, I am a butterfly. If you are truthful to being who you are, and follow the natural course of your life, you would be flying up here with me." The caterpillar gasped,"Really? What do you do then?" Butterfly responded gently, "I bring the seeds of love from heaven to earth, and I spread them from flowers to flowers."
