What is under Your Feet?

By Admin on 29-10-2016

One day in the hot Arizona desert, when a lonely miner’s burro ran off, he thought the world had come to an end for him.  In a fit of anger, he reached down and picked up a rock to hurl after the fleeing animal. Feeling the weight of the rock, he knew he’d found gold and struck it rich.The miner found what turned out to be one of the richest gold mines in what was then Arizona Territory. Would he have found the gold if the burro had not run off?  May be, and then may be not. “Sweet are the uses of adversity.” It opens our eyes to the opportunities ahead. But for the misfortune, we would probably be stuck for ever in the rut we have created.
