There is martial art in Japan. We call it “ZEN”. In the ZEN Literature the teacher is known as “ZEN Master”. This story is also linked to the same. A very young student of martial art approached his ZEN Master. He had an eagerness know how soon he will be an expert of this martial art. He asked his master, “If I will work with full concentration how fast can I also become ZEN Master?” The ZEN Master thought for a moment as to why this boy is asking such a question and soon he understood the motive behind. He answered after a well thought, “Ten years.”
The boy thought this period is too long. There should be solution to reduce this time period. So he again asked, “ If I work very hard and try to learn very fast, then how much time will it take?” ZEN Master smiled. “Twenty years”. The boy was surprised to see the increasing period. He posed the question again with more force, “ If I really work hard, day and night, then how much time will it take?” ZEN Master became little serious and replied, “Thirty years”.
“Thirty years”. The boy got disappointed after listening to it. He asked ZEN Master, “ But sir, I fail to understand, why the time period is increasing even if I am ready to put in more hard work and effort?” Then ZEN Master replied with a smile, “ Son, your one eye is still on the achievement of the target. And you will be only working with your one eye.
If you work hard will all your concentration, the results will follow you. You have control on your actions, however results are the outcome of your action.

One day a known person approached Chankya and enthusiastically started saying, “Do you know, just a while ago, I heard few things from you friend about you?” Chankya was famous for his wisdom, knowledge and good behavior. He said to his known person, “Before I listen to what you have to say, I would like to test it through my three step testing.”
“What is this three step test?”, the person asked. Chankya made him understand, “ Before you tell me about what my friend has said, let us test it. I call this testing – a three step test. The first test is of truth-ness. Is it sure that whatever you are going to say is a truth?”
“No”, the person dais, “ I have heard it from somewhere.”
“Okay”, Chankaya analyzed. “If you don’t know whether this is truth or not, we will do another test. The second test is for goodness. Are you going to tell me some good thing about my friend?”
“No, it’s opposite to it…..”
“Then”, Chankya asked further. “Whatever you are going to say, is not the truth, is not positive about my friend then lets do the third test. The third test is of usefulness. Whatever you are going to tell me, is that useful to me?”
“No, it’s not like that.”
Chankya then said the last thing. “Whatever you are suppose to tell me, it is not true, its not positive and its not useful also, then why you want to tell me?”
Any Information must be checked on these three parameters of : Truthness, Goodness and Usefulness.

Whenever you see the group of swans flying in the sky in “V” shape, you might think why they fly in a particular shape? Earlier no body knew the reason for this shape. Now the science has solved this mystery.
Whenever any swan open and moves his wings to take a fly, this helps the other swan to take up the flight. Like this when the entire group fly in a “V” shape the efficiency of the speed goes up by 71% as compare to the speed of one single swan. This is why the intelligent swans fly in “V” shape. If any swan tries to get away from that shape, he starts feeling the stress and resistance, so he don’t fly alone. Hence, this swan set back to his own group to take the benefit of group synergy.
When the leader of the group gets tried, he comes back by folding his wings and another swan takes the place of the leader. They also make a particular sound while flying as to motivate the swans flying in the front. When some one gets hurt or not well, he start to fall out from the group, to help him immediately other two swans also leaves the group and come down with him. They stay with him till he recovers back or he dies. Then, go back to their group or join some other group in the sky.
The Nature has given Intelligence to these Swans. We should learn the importance of Team Work, Power of Union and Oneness from them.
