The horse that wanted more beauty

A cosmic god had a horse. The horse was beautiful and also it had many good qualities. But it wanted to be more perfect in every way. It especially wanted to become beauty unparalleled.

One day the horse said to the cosmic god, “0 Lord, you have given me beauty. You have given me other good qualities. I am so grateful to you. But how I wish you could make me more beautiful. I would be extremely, extremely grateful if you could make me more beautiful.”

The cosmic god said, “I am more than ready to make you more beautiful. Tell me in what way you want to be changed.”

The horse said, “It seems to me that I am not well proportioned. My neck is too short. If you can make my neck a little longer, my upper body will be infinitely more beautiful. And if you can make my legs much longer and thinner, then I will look infinitely more beautiful in my lower body.”

The cosmic god said, “Amen!” Then immediately he made a camel appear in place of the horse. The horse was so disheartened that it started to cry, “0 Lord, I wanted to become more beautiful. In what way is this kind of outer form more beautiful?”

The cosmic god said, “This is exactly what you asked for. You have become a camel.”

The horse cried, “Oh no, I do not want to become a camell I wish to remain a horse. As a horse, everybody appreciated my good qualities. Nobody will appreciate me as a camel.”

The cosmic god said, “Never try to achieve or receive more than I have given you. If you want to lead a desire-life, then at every moment you will want more and more. But you have no idea what the outcome will be. If you cry for a longer neck and legs, this is what will happen. Each thing in my creation has its own good qualities. The camel is not as beautiful as you are, but it carries heavy loads and has a tremendous sense of responsibility.

  • RAGINI January 19, 2012, 2:46 am

    Wow it is really nice. This story gave me a lesson, actually all my family members are fair but my color is whitish, I wanted to be as they are, but now I do not want to be fair… I realized now that who I am is what God gave me, that is perfect for me.

  • Saywhat December 21, 2011, 6:14 am

    What utter drivel. Fodder for the unthinking masses. If everyone thought this way you wouldn’t be using this website. What an evil horse wanting to better itself.

  • Gandharv November 26, 2011, 2:36 am

    There is a nice moral in the story. I liked it.

  • Fatima November 4, 2011, 9:52 am

    A very good story for those who are not satisfied with Gods gift to them and to those who under estimate themselves

  • Jasbir November 3, 2011, 12:36 am

    Nice one..

  • Nikhil September 15, 2011, 8:18 am

    I really have no idea about how many of you come across my comment. But… Did any one ever try thinking that why sometimes in life, we see people dying, we see people who really don’t have nothing at all & some live their life king’s size. What do you have to say about them? Did the rational enough God really create the mankind equal enough and then preached us of no discrimination? We are not born by choice, but born by chance…

  • Trisha September 11, 2011, 6:26 am

    I love it

  • UMESH August 29, 2011, 11:01 pm

    Nice story………….

  • Gzwynnyth July 12, 2011, 8:20 am

    I like the story very much…. it shows the character of a person who’s not contented of God’s gift to him/her.

  • Girygirl July 11, 2011, 12:02 pm

    This story is for the people who think they are not beautiful.

  • edel June 23, 2011, 2:26 am

    It is a logic story

  • nitish Negi June 19, 2011, 10:01 am

    This is a wonderful piece to all those creatures who forget what they are in the race to achieve what they don’t have. Want is not something bad, but the want to have something else despite already having some marvelous qualities is what we all are characterized, including me. 🙂

  • Divya Mudiraj June 16, 2011, 2:21 am

    It is a sweet story. I really liked it. It is an inspirational story for the people who really think that they are not beautiful.

  • Bhupendra Adhikari April 26, 2011, 5:42 am

    God already set the rules for us, don’t try to go beyond what he has given to us. What is yours, you will get indefinitely.

  • Sunitha April 22, 2011, 12:26 pm

    Good one.

    This story is for all the girls who visit beauty parlors often to change their looks.

    Big eyes, sharp nose etc doesn’t make a girl look beautiful.

    The best cosmetics are Confidence for eyes and Smile for lips.

    The story tells us that we should be contented on what GOD gave us… Just bear in mind that these things could help us to prosper our life and glorify His Name…..For me I’m very thankful that God give me this tremendous gift which I will treasure and use to uplift myself and uplift his holy name…

  • Anonymous December 28, 2010, 3:48 am

    Be contented and thankful to our God because whatever image you have today GOD has a perfect plan for you and it is not the measure how to live a perfect life in earth use whatever talents you may have for his glorification.
