Tuesday’s Trilogy of Inspiration

 

 

A Blind Man’s Love

A man married a beautiful girl.  He loved her very much.  One day she developed a skin disease.  Slowly she started to lose her beauty.  It so happened that one day her husband left for a tour.  While returning he met with an accident and lost his eyesight.  However, their married life continued as usual.  But as days passed she lost her beauty gradually. Blind husband did not know this and there was not any difference in their married life.  He continued to love her and she also loved him very much.  One day she died.  Her death brought him a great sorrow.  He finished all her last rites and wanted to leave that town.

A man from behind called and said, ‚ÄúNow how will you be able to walk all alone? ¬†All these days your wife used to help you‚ÄĚ. ¬†He replied, ‚ÄúI am not blind. ¬†I was acting because if she knew l could see her skin condition due to a disease, it would have pained her more than her disease. ¬†I didn‚Äôt love her for her beauty alone, but I fell in love with her caring and loving nature. ¬†So I pretended to be blind. ¬†I only wanted to keep her happy‚ÄĚ.

Moral:  When you truly love someone, you will go to any extent to keep your loved one happy and sometimes it is good for us to act blind and ignore one another’s short comings in order to be happy.  The Beauty will fade with time, but heart and soul will always be the same.  Love the person for what he/she is from inside, not from outside.

 

A Blank Question Paper

One day a professor entered the classroom and asked his students to prepare for a surprise test.  They waited anxiously at their desks for the test to begin.  The professor handed out the question paper with the text facing down as usual.  Once he handed them all out, he asked his students to turn the page and begin.  To everyone’s surprise, there were no questions, just a black dot in the center of the page.

The professor seeing the expression on everyone‚Äôs face, told them the following,¬†‚ÄúI want you to write what you see there.‚ÄĚ ¬†The confused students got started on the inexplicable task. ¬†At the end of the class, the professor took all the answer papers and started reading each one of them aloud in front of all the students. ¬†All of them with no exceptions described the black dot, trying to explain its position in the middle of the sheet etc.

After all had been read, the classroom was silent. ¬†The professor began to explain, ‚ÄúI am not going to grade on you this, I just wanted to give you something to think about. ¬†No one wrote about the white part of the paper. ¬†Everyone focused on the black dot and the same happens in our lives. ¬†We have a white paper to observe and enjoy, but we always focus on the dark spots. ¬†Our life is a gift given to us by God with love and care. ¬†We always have reasons to celebrate, nature renewing itself every day, our friends around us, the job that provides our livelihood, the miracles we see every day.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúHowever, we insist on focusing only on the dark spots, the health issues that bother us, the lack of money, the complicated relationship with a family member, the disappointment with a friends etc. ¬†The dark spots are very small compared to everything we have in our lives, but they are the ones that pollute our minds. ¬†Take your eyes away from the black spots in your life. ¬†Enjoy each one of your blessings, each moment that life gives you. ¬†Be happy and live a life positively!‚ÄĚ

 

The Three Types of People

A teacher shows three toys to a student and asks the student to find out the differences. All the three toys are seemed to be identical in their shape, size, and material. After keen observation, the student observes holes in the toys. 1st toy it has holes in the ears.  The 2nd toy has holes in ear and mouth. The 3rd toy has only one hole in one ear.

Then with the help of the needle, the student puts the needle in the ear hole of the 1st toy. The needle comes out from the other ear. In the 2nd toy, when the needle was put in the ear the needle came out of a mouth. And in the 3rd toy, when the needle was put in, the needle did not come out.

The First toy represents those people around you who gives an impression that they are listening to you, all your things and care for you. But they just pretend to do so. After listening, as the needle comes out from the next ear, the things you said to them by counting on them are gone. So be careful while you are speaking with this type of people around you, who does not care for you.

The Second toy represents those people who listen to you all your things and gives an impression that they care for you. But as in the toy, the needle comes out from a mouth. These people will use your things and the words you tell them against you by telling it to others and bringing out the confidential issues for their own purpose.

The Third toy, the needle does not come out from it. These kinds of people will keep the trust you have in them. They are the ones who you can count on.

Moral: Always stay in a company of a people who are loyal and trustworthy. People, who listen to what you tell them, are not always the ones you can count on when you need them the most.

Tuesday’s Trilogy of Inspiration

 

The Honest WoodCutter

A poor woodcutter accidentally dropped his ax into the river. He was very upset, as he had no money to buy another ax. Just then a fairy appeared in the river holding out a golden ax to him. “I found this ax in the river. Is this yours?”

“That’s not mine”, replied the woodcutter.¬†The fairy then brought out a silver ax. The woodcutter disowned this one too. Finally, the fairy held out a wooden ax.

Smiling with happiness, the woodcutter said, “That’s mine. Thank you very much.”

The fairy felt very happy seeing his honesty and said, such honesty deserves a reward. She gave the poor man all the three axes and disappeared.

Moral: Honesty is the best policy. Always be honest.

Who Is Happy?  The Crow and the Peacock

A crow lived in the forest and was absolutely satisfied in life. But one day he saw a swan. ‚ÄúThis swan is so white,‚ÄĚ he thought, ‚Äúand I am so black. This swan must be the happiest bird in the world.‚ÄĚ

He expressed his thoughts to the swan. ‚ÄúActually,‚ÄĚ the swan replied, ‚ÄúI was feeling that I was the happiest bird around until I saw a parrot, which has two colors. I now think the parrot is the happiest bird in creation.‚ÄĚ The crow then approached the parrot. The parrot explained, ‚ÄúI lived a very happy life until I saw a peacock. I have only two colors, but the peacock has multiple colors.‚ÄĚ

The crow then visited a peacock in the zoo and saw that hundreds of people had gathered to see him. After the people had left, the crow approached the peacock. ‚ÄúDear peacock,‚ÄĚ the crow said, ‚Äúyou are so beautiful. Every day thousands of people come to see you. When people see me, they immediately shoo me away. I think you are the happiest bird on the planet.‚ÄĚ

The peacock replied, ‚ÄúI always thought that I was the most beautiful and happy bird on the planet. But because of my beauty, I am entrapped in this zoo. I have examined the zoo very carefully, and I have realized that the crow is the only bird not kept in a cage. So for past few days, I have been thinking that if I were a crow, I could happily roam everywhere.‚ÄĚ

The Lion & the Poor Slave

A slave, ill-treated by his master, runs away to the forest. There he comes across a lion in pain because of a thorn in his paw. The slave bravely goes forward and removes the thorn gently.

The lion without hurting him goes away.

Some days later, the slave’s master comes hunting to the forest and catches many animals and cages them. The slave is spotted by the masters’ men who catch him and bring him to the cruel master. The master asks for the slave to be thrown into the lion’s cage.

The slave is awaiting his death in the cage when he realizes that it is the same lion that he had helped. The slave rescued the lion and all other caged animals.

Moral of the story: One should help others in need, we get the rewards of our helpful acts in return.
