Once upon a time all feelings and emotions went to a coastal island for a vacation

Once upon a time all feelings and
emotions went to a coastal island for a
vacation. According to their nature, each
was having a good time. Suddenly, a
warning of an impending storm was
announced and everyone was advised to
evacuate the island.
The announcement caused sudden panic. All
rushed to their boats. Even damaged boats
were quickly repaired and commissioned
for duty.
Yet, Love did not wish to flee quickly. There
was so much to do. But as the clouds
darkened, Love realized it was time to leave.
Alas, there were no boats to spare. Love
looked around with hope.
Just then Prosperity passed by in a luxurious
boat. Love shouted, Prosperity, could you
please take me in your boat?
No, replied Prosperity, my boat is full of
precious possessions, gold and silver. There
is no place for you.
A little later Vanity came by in a beautiful
boat. Again Love shouted, Could you help
me, Vanity? I am stranded and need a lift.
Please take me with you.
Vanity responded haughtily, No, I cannot
take you with me. My boat will get soiled
with your muddy feet.
Sorrow passed by after some time. Again,
Love asked for help. But it was to no avail.
No, I cannot take you with me. I am so sad.
I want to be by myself.
When Happiness passed by a few minutes
later, Love again called for help. But
Happiness was so happy that it did not look
around, hardly concerned about anyone.
Love was growing restless and dejected.
Just then somebody called out, Come Love, I
will take you with me. Love did not know
who was being so magnanimous, but
jumped on to the boat, greatly relieved that
she would reach a safe place.
On getting off the boat, Love met
Knowledge. Puzzled, Love inquired,
Knowledge, do you know who so
generously gave me a lift just when no one
else wished to help?
Knowledge smiled, Oh, that was Time.
And why would Time stop to pick me and
take me to safety? Love wondered.
Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and
replied, Because only Time knows your true
greatness and what you are capable of. Only
Love can bring peace and great happiness
in this world.
The important message is that when we
are prosperous, we overlook love. When we
feel important, we forget love. Even in
happiness and sorrow we forget love. Only
with time do we realize the importance of
love. Why wait that long? Why not make love
a part of your life today?
