J.S. Adams had described in his book, "Allegories of Life" about two men who will lead a beautiful and fertile valley, but they must go through a very dense forest to get there. People say that the way to go dark and full of obstacles, but if until then it will all pay off.
J.S. Adams had described in his book, “Allegories of Life” about two men who will lead a beautiful and fertile valley, but they must go through a very dense forest to get there. People say that the way to go dark and full of obstacles, but if until then it will all pay off.
Thus, the two men had started the journey together in the morning. Over time, the first man became impatient because of difficult terrain traveled.
The first guy decides to get to the valley as soon as possible. He did not care shrubs or plants that he had to face sharp. He just kept crashing, despite all of his body becomes sick.
He also ran as fast as possible, so that his friends left behind. After fighting through the woods, he finally reached the valley of the goal, though his whole body hurt. People around the valley and decided to help care for her.
When the first man had already reached the valley, the two men remained behind.
What did he do? Apparently he used an ax to cut the shrubs and plants that interfere in his path toward the valley. Although it may take longer, he chose to make way for himself as well as for others who will want to head into the valley.
Day after day he passed, and finally he came to the valley in question. Arriving there, he met a friend who was sick.
The next day, the man who made the road in the woods was then able to work directly with the people there, while others still can not do anything about it.
And after that, many people began to flock to the beautiful valley along the road that has been created by two men earlier.
From this story, J.S. Adams emphasized that there are two paths through life. First as did the first man who was selfish to get to the destination and then the journey ends, or as a second man who would open the way for others, so they got the blessing and benefit from what he has done.
