Think What You Wish For
Once upon a time an ancient god had a horse. The horse was beautiful and very good. But it wanted to be perfect in every way. Most of all it wanted to become the most beautiful creature ever.
One day the horse said to the god, “Oh, Lord, you have given me beauty. You have given me wisdom, too. Thank you for that! But my dream is to be still more beautiful. I would be extremely, extremely grateful if you could make me more beautiful.”
The god said, “I am more than ready to make your dream true. Just tell me in what way you want to be changed.”
The horse said, “It seems to me that I am not well proportioned. My neck is too short. If you can make my neck a little longer, then the upper part of my body will be more elegant. And I don’t like my legs. Could you, please, make them longer and thinner? Then I think I’ll look more beautiful.”
The god said, “All right!” He clapped his hands and at that moment a camel appeared in place of the horse. The horse was so disappointed that it started to cry, “Oh, Lord, I wanted to become more beautiful. In what way is this appearance more beautiful?”
The god said, “This is exactly what you asked for. You have become a camel.”
The horse cried, “Oh no, I do not want to be a camel! I wish to remain a horse. As a horse, everybody liked me. Nobody will like me as a camel.”
The god said, “Never try to be different from what you are, or have more than what I have given you. If you want to have a dream life, then you will want more and more. But you have no idea what the result will be. Each thing in my creation has its own beauty. The camel is not as beautiful as the horse, but it has a great sense of responsibility. I’m sure you will understand how important everything in the world is, just the way it is created.”
