There's a website that I come back to time and time again, the site houses a collection of spiritual short stories of various kinds.

I find it interesting because it has stories from a wide range of traditions, parables that I may not have necessary come across otherwise.The novelty of the some of the stories are good for thought, and often reassuring when I'm feeling down.The site is helpful for getting one's mind off things or a simple dose of inspiration.

The Donkey In The Well is one of my favourites.

There's quite a few gems to be found, consider checking it out sometime.

Thanks for this info. I love those little pearls of wisdom.
The Donkey in the Well is a good story.

That is an effed up spiritual story. The guy and his neighbors chip in to kill the donkey rather than save it ??

I think the story is about providence. The donkey was saved, and the cruel humans hopefully learned a lesson.

Imo, it's the point is along the lines of ColeYounger's comment.

This tale came to mind, having most recently talked with one of my kids. I picture the well being very deep, the farmer and his friends giving up on the donkey after exhausting themselves trying to figure how to help.

Donkeys are stereotypically portrayed as dumb beasts of burden, this story reminds me that raw determination and being in the moment can help overcome what appears to be a hopeless situation.

Idk, it's easy to underestimate ourselves, but depending on the King, the fool my be smarter then we think


Here's another story that I come back to:
Stone and the flower
