Cashew Seeds, Why Are You Outside?

Updated on July 29, 2016

It has been said that the seed or the nut of the Cashew was inside the fruit like all others. But what made this little seed decide to stay outside when he could be safe and warm inside the fruit? Did he do something wrong to deserve such punishment like what the Calamansi did?

A long time ago when the Earth was still new and the fruits can still talk; there was a lonely seed inside the Cashew fruit. He was there all alone, just listening to the songs of the birds, feeling the playful wind, listening to the splash of a nearby little waterfall and the laughter of the flowers. He was so eager to see the outside world and feel the magnificent wonders of it.

The little seed prayed so hard to let him go outside and see the beauty of the world. But the fairy who guarded all the fruits on the forest said the world outside is not always green and blue and for that he must stay inside for him to be safe.

But as the days go by, the little seed became sad and lonely than ever. He always cries and wished that the fairy would let him go outside. He really wanted to see all the beautiful things that God created.

So one day, the fairy took pity of this little seed. "Are you really sure you wanted to go out? Because if you do, you can never go back inside. You will forever stay outside no matter what the weather will bring."

The little seed promised that he would never want to wish again to be back in that lonely world inside the fruit. How happy he was when he saw the world - the birds, the flowers, and the waterfall nearby and all the blue skies and the white cloud made him think that what he did was right. He was befriended by all living creatures and he became happy.

Then the storm came, raving all the things on his way, smashing all the little things and scared all the fruits by his thunder. The little seed was very scared and very cold. He cried and cried to the fairy to let him go back inside, for him to be warm and cozy and never to hear the thunder again.

After the storm, the fairy visited him. She said, "You can never go back inside little seed, you will stay here outside and learn your lesson for life."

All our life, we always wanted more than what was given to us. We tend to do the things a little way beyond. But what we didn't know, God created us in such unique and special way. Everything in our life happens for a reason. Sometimes we tend to blame ourselves or others for the bad things that happened to us but I think it happened because it was meant to happen. Let us love the life that God gave us because He knew what’s best for us.

Let us all embrace the life we have now and be thankful to God for everything.

      Spy, I learned two things here. First, I never knew cashews grew outside the fruit. Shoot, I didn't even know they are the seed of a fruit! Secondly, I learned a good lesson - again. Thanx for sending it on.

      I love this. We are currently in our cashew season here and are eating the cashew fruits like crazy. I love to see things promoting the humble and healthy cashew fruit and nuts.
