The wise camel follows the proud mouse

Il mio Tandem / My Tandem

“Tandem” means “finally” and “follow”, it reminded me of one of Rumi’s stories. The story of the proud mouse and the wise camel. The mouse sees a wise camel and is fascinated by his wisdom and greatness and wishes to be friends with the camel. A humble camel befriends a mouse. The mouse had taken hold of the camel’s reins and was going ahead of him to show off, and the camel followed him, the mouse had a proud expression. The camel noticed this but did not say anything.
Until they reached a river. The mouse was shocked and scared and stopped and did not take a step forward. To discipline the mouse, the camel said: Oh friend, why are you standing still and not moving forward? Go, I will follow you too. The mouse answered: This river is big and I am afraid to death. The camel said: This water is nothing. It has not passed my knee yet. Why are you so afraid? The mouse said: This water is nothing for you, but it is too much for me. Finally, the mouse stopped being selfish and asked the camel to take him through that river. The wise camel takes the mouse on his back and crosses the river to teach the mouse to be merciful, kind and humble.
