Micro-story: Untold Secrets of Lochness
Sometimes, you only need to open your eyes... Deep in the mystical waters of Loch Ness lived a wise Being known as the Loch Ness Master. For centuries, the Master watched over the lake and its surroundings, guarding its secrets. One bright morning, a curious traveller from New Hampshire arrived at the Loch. Emily had heard tales of the Loch Ness monster since she was a young child, and now, at the age of 18, she was determined to uncover the truth.
She set out on a boat, yet couldn't help but feel a mix of excitement and curiosity. As days turned into weeks, the young woman tirelessly searched the deep waters; the Loch Ness monster remained hidden. Frustration began to set in. One evening, as she sat by the shore, questioning her reasoning for coming to the Loch, the Loch Ness Master emerged from the depths. "I see you seek answers," the Master said in a deep voice. Emily was taken aback by the majestic Being before her. "Yes," she replied, "I seek the truth about the Loch Ness monster." The Master nodded and said, "The truth you seek is not just about a creature, but a lesson in the pursuit of knowledge. Sometimes, the most profound mysteries are not meant to be unravelled. It is the quest itself that holds value, teaching patience, humility, and respect for the unknown."
Emily's eyes widened as if a light had unexpectedly been switched on. There was wisdom in the Master's words. She had been so focused on proving the existence of the Loch Ness monster that she had overlooked the beauty of the journey itself. She thanked the Master for the lesson and decided to continue her exploration with a sense of respect for the mysteries of the world. Years passed, and Emily graduated from University as a marine biologist. She dedicated her research and time to preserving the secrets of the Loch, its monster and the Master. The moral of this micro-story is: Some mysteries are best left unsolved, and the journey of discovery is often more valuable than the destination.
