The Lizard...A Beautiful Story

  1. 1. The Lizard A Beautiful Story
  2. 2. In order to renovate his house after many years, a man in Japan tore open the wall. Japanese houses normally have a hollow space between the wooden walls.
  3. 3. When tearing down the walls, the man found that there was a lizard stuck there because a nail from the outside hammered into one of the lizard’s feet.
  4. 4. The lizard was still alive. The man saw this and felt pity. What had happened? He remembered he had hammered a nail at this spot when he moved into the house 10 years ago.
  5. 5. The lizard had survived in such a position for 10 years!?!! The lizard in a dark wall partition for 10 years without moving…it was impossible and mind boggling.
  6. 6. He wondered how this lizard survived for 10 years without moving a single step…since one of its feet was nailed.
  7. 7. So he stopped his work and observed the lizard…what had it been doing and what had it been eating?
  8. 8. Later, strangely from somewhere appeared another lizard, with food in its mouth…AHHH! The man was stunned and touched deeply.
  9. 9. For the lizard that was stuck by nail, another lizard had been feeding it for the past 10 years… Tears welled up in the man’s eyes. He set the nailed lizard free.
  10. 10. Such a love, such a beautiful love… Even a tiny creature like this could show such care and love.
  11. 11. It’s a wonder what love can do. For a tiresome 10 years the lizard had cared without giving up hope on its friend.
  12. 12. “ It's your unlimited power to care and to love that can make the biggest difference in the quality of your life.” Anthony Robbins
  13. 13. Isn’t it an irony that even a small creature can show so much love and care when men blessed with brilliant minds have committed so much cruelty and atrocities against their fellow human beings?
  14. 14. Conflicts, problems, suffering and trouble cannot be overcome through force, aggression, violence and war. Only love, care and compassion can bring true peace and happiness to man.
