Perception Defines Life - 2
by Mahesh Sharma Bookmark and Share
 
 

After 1 week, the children were relieved because the game had finally ended. The teacher asked: 'How did you feel while carrying the potatoes with you for 1 week?' The children let out their frustrations and started complaining of the trouble that they had to go through having to carry the heavy and smelly potatoes wherever they go. Then the teacher told them the hidden meaning behind the game. The teacher said: 'This is exactly the situation when you carry your hatred for somebody inside your heart. The stench of hatred will contaminate your heart and you will carry it with you wherever you go. If you cannot tolerate the smell of rotten potatoes for just 1 week, can you imagine what is it like to have the stench of hatred in your heart for your lifetime?'

Moral of the story

Throw away any hatred for anyone from your heart so that you will not carry sins for a lifetime. Forgiving others is the best attitude to take! Love others even if you don't like them........

3. Guilt

Each of us has incidents in our life where, if we were to relive them, we would probably do things differently. This is only natural. We are all human. As the old saying goes, 'To err is human; to forgive divine.' To be human is to make mistakes. No one is immune. No one is perfect. If you let go of your past mistakes and errors in judgment, learning whatever lessons need to be learned from that experience, then this is healthy.

4. Getting Hurt

Why do we get hurt? It's because we are open to be hurt by others, simple, huh!

5. Self-Pity

Every life has things to be happy about and things to be unhappy about. If you want to feel sorry about yourself, you only have to look at your life to discover many reasons to be unhappy. Likewise if you want to feel gratitude for what is happening in your life, there are many reasons to be thankful.

It is a matter of choice as you see whether to be happy or unhappy which is resulted out of Self-Pity

6. Fear ' What do we fear?

We fear the unknown, but what is it that brings about the fear in the unknown, is it not the Uncertainness? Fear puts mental faculties in reverse order. It slows the mind, defocus us. How do you beat this fear? By being the fear, focus on what you want to happen, rather what you don't want to happen. Fear away the fear and get the worries away.

In understanding life force you have an added reason to be aware of your thoughts. We now realize that not only do negative states of mind affect our success, but also our wellness and ability to perform at our best. Our very essence and being is affected by how we think and feel.

Paradoxical huh! All these things are right in front of us, but we many a times, we don't see them. I am concluding with a quote, my all-time favorite '

'It is so simple to be happy, but it is so difficult to be Simple'
