How do I Grow Good Corn ? Its about Life !

There was a farmer who grew award-winning corn. Each year he entered his corn in the state exhibition where it always won the “Best Trophy”.

A newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.

“How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked.

“Why not?” the farmer said. “Didn’t you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn.”

Help your neighbor grow good corn

The farmer was aware of how inter-connectedness the life is. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbors corn also improves.





So it is with our lives…..

Those who choose to live in peace must help their neighbors to live in peace.

Those who choose to live well must help others to live well, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches.

And those who choose to be happy must help others to find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all.

“If we are to grow good corn, we must help our neighbors grow good corn”.
