A Pig or a Princess（一隻豬或是一個公主）
If you dress up a pig, and decide to send her to the party, what will happen when the party is over?
Piggy is Pat’s pet pig.
One day, Piggy and Pat were in the living room eating popcorn and watching TV.
Piggy saw a beautiful princess dressed in a pretty dress in a TV show.
Her eyes were wide open.
“See that elegant princess on TV?
How charming and pretty she is!
I want to be like her, I want to dress up like her.”
So Pat tried to dress her up like the pricess in the show.
He found her a fine silk dress and put it on her.
He had her fingernails polished, red and shiny.
He coated her eyelashes with mascara, long and curly.
He bought her a pair of name brand sunglasses.
He picked up the newest fashion color lipstick.
He was so proud of how she looked and sent her to the party.
After the party was over, what would this pretty piggy do?
Would she care about her fine-polished pig hoof nails?
Would she mind if the make-up had been properly removed?
Would she pay any attention to the pretty curly eyelashes?
And where would she put her name brand sunglasses?
No, she wouldn’t bother with any of these things.
Where do you think she’s going to relax herself?
The cozy bedsheet with lining?
No, I guarantee that she would run back to her wonderful mud, as fast as she could.
Rolling over in the mud, she would make herself all muddy and dirty.
That’s the result of trying to dress up a pig and make her a princess!
No matter how much you try to dress it up, a pig’s still a pig.
Neither does it help to change the exterior of a person without changing his inner self.
It’s useless to try to dress up a pig to make her look like a princess!

Dannie Donkey In The Den（深井裡的驢子）
Dannie was a sweet, gentle two-year-old donkey.
He always followed his master to the market to help him carry goods.
One day, on the way back from the market, he fell into a dried well.
The well was deep and dark. Dannie Donkey was very scared.
His master tried all kinds of ways trying to save him out of the well.
He tried and tried but nothing seemed work.
He finally decided to give up.
He thought to himself” I’d better cover this dried well, so no one else would fall into the well again.
He called some friends and got some dirt and started to cover the well with dirt.
“What in the world is that” said Dannie.
“ Are they going to cover me with dirt?”
“ Am I going to be buried in the dirt and die?”
“Why there’s no one having mercy on me?”
“ No, I don’t want to die. What should I do?”
Dannie was crying as hard as he could.
But it didn’t take long that he changed his thought.
Actually, he had not much time to think about it.
He just started to shake off the dirt on his back.
Little by little, but surely, he came higher and higher every time people put dirt into the well.
“Here I am!”
With a big smile on his face, he triumphantly walked out of the well.
Every body was surprised but surely happy to see him.
Just shook off the dirt on his back and not felt sorry for himself.
Dannie not only save his life but also gave everyone a good lesson—
Shake off whatever looks bad on you and let it be a foot stool instead a foot stone for you.

Odie and His Dog Food （Odie和他的狗食）
Odie’s master had gone on a trip for many days.
He left Odie a huge bowl of dog food, but not any of the regular treats, which usually were delicious bones.
Odie got so tired of eating dried dog food every day.
“ It says that if you ever want to experience something,
You have to conceive it and believe it is possible.
The image of bones has to become a part of me.
In every part of Odie, my dear.
Deep down in my subconscious mind.
I have to start looking at the dog food through eyes of faith.
I need to see myself chewing some delicious bones instead of dog food.
“ But, dog food is still dog food!”
Odie starts to cry and spit out the dog food on the ground.
Here comes the little friend, Mr. Mouse.
“ Hey, Odie, don’t waste it.”
So Mr. Mouse caught all the dog food that Odie spat and carried it to his tiny warm sweet home.
Odie heard some happy sounds and he looked through Mr. Mouse tiny window,
“ Hey, looks like you are having a good time.”
“ Yes, we are.”
“ I never realize my dog food can become a good meal for you.
I guess it doesn’t taste that bad after all.”
Be grateful and things will be different.

“The monkey just centered on the bananas and didn’t notice the danger!”
Said Kitty Cutey.
“That’s right. If he would get his mind off the bananas, he wouldn’t be caught by the hunter.” Captain Cat continued, “ It’s the same way, when you only center on your own needs and problems.”
“ Hey, Cutey, what are you doing?”
“ I’m making a barrel of bananas and hoping to catch monkeys.”
Living to give instead of living to get.
