A man was taking his son on a walk in a nearby forest.

Suddenly, the boy tripped, felt a sharp pain and screamed, “Ahhhhh!”.

He was surprised to hear a voice mimicking him from the mountain, “Ahhhh!”.

It was his first experience of an echo.

Filled with curiosity, he screamed, “Who are you?”.

But the only answer he received was, “Who are you?”

This made him angry, so he shouted, “You are a coward!”.

And the voice answered, “You are a coward!”.

He looked at his father and asked, “Dad, what’s going on? Who is talking back at me?”.

“Son”, the man replied, “Pay attention. Say something nice to him”.

Then the boy screamed, “I love you!”.

The voice answered, “I love you!”.

Realising his son’s confusion, the man took over the conversation with nature and shouted, ” You are wonderful!”.

And the voice answered, “You are wonderful!”.

The boy was thrilled, but still couldn’t understand what was going on.

The father explained, “Son, people call this an ECHO, but truly, it is LIFE.
Life always gives you back what you give out.
Life is a mirror of your actions.
If you want more love, give more love.
If you want more kindness, give more kindness.
If you want understanding and respect, give understanding and respect.
If you want people to be patient with you, then be patient with them.
This rule of nature applies to every aspect of our lives.
An echo is nature’s way of teaching us to do unto others what we wish them to do to us and wish for others what we wish for ourselves.
Life always gives you back what you give out.
Your life is not a coincidence, but a mirror of your own doings.
Choose your ECHO!
Send out blessings and receive blessings in return”.

What I am echoing back to you today is Love, Peace and Happiness.
