Zen Master and the Scoprio, a didactic story

"A Zen Master sees an scorpion drown and decided to pull the scorpio from the water. He calmly extended his hand out to reach the creature when he did, the scorpion stung him.
With the effect of pain, the master let go the creature and it fell back into the water, the Master realising that the scorpio is drowning. 
He got back and try to rescue the scorpion but the scorpion stung him again. 
The master let it go again, after a bit relief from the pain. 
The teacher tried pricked the creature again and the scorpio stung him again.

A young disciple standing by, approached the Master and said, "Excuse me Master, you are going to hurt yourself try to save that evil, vicious creature! why are you insist??
Do not you understand that each time you try help the creature, it sting you? "
The master replied, the nature of the scorpion is to sting and mine is to help and it will not change mine in helping the scorpio.

So the teacher thought for a while and used a leaf from the nearby tree to pull the scorpion from the water and saved his life, then turning to his young disciple, he continued:

"Do not change your nature if someone hurts you, just take precautions.
Some pursue happiness, others create it.

People are mostly ungrateful for the profits you always offer, but that's not a reason to stop sharing goodness, to give up love that you have within.

Preoccupy yourself more with your conscience than your reputation. 

Because your consciousness is what you are and your reputation is what others think of you.

When life presents you with thousand reasons to cry, show it that you have a thousand reasons to smile. "
