The Meaning of Serenity
 -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 There once was a King who offered a prize to the artist who would
 paint the best picture of serenity.  Many artists tried.  The King
looked at all the pictures, but there were only two he really liked and
he had to choose between them.
 One picture was of a calm lake.  The lake was a perfect mirror for the
peaceful towering mountains that were all around it.  Overhead was a
blue sky with fluffy white clouds.  All who saw this picture thought
that it was a perfect picture of serenity.
 The other picture had mountains too.  But these were rugged and bare.
Above was an angry sky from which rain fell, and in which lightening
played. Down the side of the mountain tumbled a foaming  waterfall.
This did not look peaceful at all. But when the King looked, he saw
behind the waterfall a tiny bush growing in a crack in the rock.  In the
bush a mother bird had built her nest. There, in the midst of the rush
of angry water, sat the mother bird on her nest ........... perfect
serenity. Which picture do you think won the prize? The King chose the
second picture.  Do you know why? "Because,"  explained the King,
"serenity does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise,
trouble, or hard work.  serenity means to be in the midst of all those
things and still be calm in your heart.  That is the real meaning of
serenity."
