“Soon, when all is well, you’re going to look back on this period of your life and be so glad that you never gave up.”
― Brittany Burgunder
Jesus is my favorite and my idol storyteller of all time. I recall how I love reading his parables. I personally write this parable together with my story The Rooster who wants to be a Dove. (Hope you read this one as well)
If you feel that you are alone right now, if you feel that you are lost, if you feel you don’t have anyone to count on, hope by my story, you will find inspiration and love. Love is always around, my prayer is we realize it every day.
The Lonely Meteor
One day, there was a meteor found herself alone on this Earth. She thinks that if she could find any lonely thing here in this Earth, they can be friends with him or her, they will share their doom-ness, mend their broken hearts, and they would be happy. What a perfect plan. (Okay, I know that meteors don’t have hearts, but let just imagine that they have including all internal organs that humans have.) She decided to approach first a stone. She remembered someone quoted that like attracts like that makes a stone as a good candidate for her plan.
“Hey stone, you look so lonely? Want to hang-up with me?” The meteor said
The stone replied “ Ow sure meteor, we can catch up. But I am not lonely as you thought. There are worms beneath me and a gem inside me and I never felt alone.”
“I’m happy for you stone, if that’s the case, do you know someone who’s lonely on this planet?” the meteor ask
“Well, all plants and trees here are families, but I heard there is a plant in a dessert that feels so alone, the cactus.” The stone answered.
So the meteor goes to the desert to find a cactus and because it looks alone, she easily finds one.
“Hey cactus, you look so lonely? Want to hang-up with me?” The meteor said
The cactus replied “ Ow sure meteor, we can catch up. But I am not lonely as you thought. Sand is always with me, and scorpions, snakes, and eagles always visited me here and I never felt alone.”
“I’m happy for you cactus, if that’s the case, do you know someone who’s lonely on this planet?” the meteor ask.
“ There is a saying that it is lonely at the top. Maybe he felt so lonely. He has so much responsibility towards trees, plants, and humans. You better ask the mountain” The cactus answered.
“ Thanks, cactus, by the way, you have lovely thorns.” And the meteor finds its way to ask the mountain.
“Hey mountain, you look so lonely? Want to hang-up with me?” The meteor said
The mountain replied “ Ow sure meteor, we can catch up. But I am not lonely as you thought. The river is with me, the wind is with me and the gravity is with me. In spite of my big responsibility to nature and mankind, I never felt alone.”
“I’m happy for you mountain, if that’s the case, do you know someone who’s alone?” the meteor ask.
“ There is a saying that it is lonely at the top. Ask the Sun, he is the only sun here” The mountain answered.
“ thank you mountain, and don’t stress yourself too much.” And the meteor goes to ask the Sun privately.
“Hey Sun, I am glad that I finally found the most lonely thing here, you look so lonely, do you want to hang-up with me? The meteor ask.
“ Thank you meteor for the offer, sure I really want to have a good time with you. But I am not lonely as you thought.” The sun answered.
“ What do you mean? Who is with you?”
“ I’m with the Earth,” the sun said
“ But the Earth is just taking advantage of you.” The meteor response.
“ Maybe you are right. But doing this for Earth makes me happy and alive. Because of her, I felt so significant and I never felt alone.” The sun answered.
The meteor turned to be irritable.
“ Why does it seems that all of you are connected. You are all happy while me, I am stuck here feeling all by myself.”
“ I think you must ask the Supreme Creator, to Him, you will find the answer meteor.”
The meteor runs away while playing “All By My Self “ as a background music.
The meteor due its desperation go and ask the supreme creator. “Your Highness, can I ask you something.”
“ Sure, go ahead, ask it”
“ Why you let me be in this place? I felt so lonely down here”
“Meteor, I make you be there, to be the most significant as you can be. Besides, you are never and never will be alone. I am always at your side. You have Me.”
