This Heartwarming Story About A Selfless Farmer Is Making People Tear Up

It is no secret that most of us nowadays have our little special corner of the Internet, whether that would be our Instagram or Twitter account, Imgur profile, a personal blog, YouTube account – you name it, there’s a place for everyone under the virtual sun here.

This time the Tumblr community blessed us with a story so wholesome, it seems the writers on the platform can’t get enough of it themselves. It’s been circulating online for quite a while and several people kept adding to it until it became a real masterpiece about kindness and the true beauty of friendship, loyalty, and selfless unconditional love. And no, it’s not me crying, it’s them ninjas cutting onions.

When talking about storytelling, storyteller specializing in personal narratives Josh Campbell says it’s important to stay honest with your audience when you’re telling or writing a story. He suggests staying with your point but not forgetting to add some little exciting side quests.  “[In] every journey you want to get from A to B but it’s the side roads and the side tracks, the long cuts and the short cuts that make the journey worthwhile,” says the storyteller.

 

Someone on Tumblr posted this writing prompt for people continue the story

However, Josh says it’s important not to get too carried away with the side stories and also not to be too open about the moral of the story. Let the people figure it out themselves. “You’ve got to trust that your audience is going to get the lesson that you want them to get or they’re going get the lesson that they want to get. Don’t rob them of that by telling them the moral of the story”.

And this person definitely delivered

OK, confirmed atheist, sceptic and cynic here, and I loved this story. I loved it because, though it speaks of gods, it's also about truth and the human condition, and how every little action makes a difference that lasts. Well done to those who wrote it.

You have a god, my friend. Your god is the mind. Reason and challenge and logic. Gods are not entities outside of us, they are the names we put on our hearts. Atheism is a form of religion, just as monotheism and pantheism are. You believe that there are no gods, but this is still a belief, just as belief in one god, or many. It cannot be proven, nor can it be disproven. And as a belief, it is to be respected as long as you take it and do good with it.

I wish most religions/religious were like this.

Yes - and that's the difference between being religious or spiritual. You do not need religion to be spiritual. It lives deep down in each of us.
