Story Of Life
One day, little Jim was taking a walk with his father in the rugged roads of the mountain near their house. Suddenly, he slipped and hurt himself; Jim screamed, “AAAhhhh!” Immediately he heard a voice from the mountains saying “AAAhhhh!” Jim forgot his hurt and shouted, “Who are you?” Once again he heard that voice saying “Who are you?” Jim was amused and he shouted, saying, “I like you!” The voice immediately answered back, saying “I like you!”

Finding the voice repeating everything that he said, Jim got annoyed and said, “You’re a coward! Come in front!” Once again like every other time that voice from the mountains repeated exactly what Jim had shouted its way.

Jim got flabbergasted. He looked at his father and asked, “Father, what is going on? Who is this?”

His father smiled and said, “Son, this is called an echo.” And then he said, “Now listen to this.” Jim’s father then shouted towards the mountains saying, “Hey you are a champion!” The voice answered back, “Hey you are a champion!” Jim got puzzled.

Jim’s father then looked at him and said, “Son, although people call it an echo, it is, in reality, Life. It gives you back everything that you give to it. Our life reflects our actions. If you give out love, then life rewards you back with it. If you want happiness from the world, spread happiness first and then you get your return.”

Jim kept listening to his father as he continued, “Life is not a coincidence, son. It is your reflection – the reflection of your deeds, acts and beliefs.”
