Everything is in your hands

Everything is in your hands

A parable, which you probably know – Everything is in your hands

Everything is in your hands, a parable, which you probably know. Disciples decided to test their teacher. They approached him hiding a butterfly in semi-closed hands and asked him if the creature is dead or alive. They agreed amongst themselves that if the teacher answers: “Dead”, the disciple will open hands and the butterfly will fly away alive, but if the teacher says “Alive” he will slightly squeeze his palms so that the butterfly will be dead… Wise teacher answered: “Everything is in your hands…” So we are always able to change our reality the way we want it. If you want to go green just go for it. If you want to make it Space of Love – just do it, everything is in your hands. Quote of Anatole France – “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
