There was a millionaire who was bothered by severe eye pain. He consulted so many physicians, consumed heavy loads of drugs and underwent hundreds of injections.
But the ache persisted with great vigour than before.
At last a monk was called for who understood his problem and said that for sometimes he should concentrate only on green colour and not to let fall his eyes on any other colours.
The millionaire got together a group of painters and purchased barrels of green color and directed that every object his eye was likely to fall on be painted in green colour just as the monk had directed.
When the monk came to visit him after few days, the millionaire’s servants ran with buckets of green paints and poured on him since he was in red dress, lest their master see any other colours and his eye ache comes back.
Hearing this the monk laughed & said “If only you had purchased a pair of green spectacles, worth just a few dollars, you could have saved these walls and trees and pots and all other articles.
You cannot paint the world green.”
Let us change our vision and the world will appear accordingly. It is foolish to shape the world, let us shape ourselves first.
Let’s change our vision!!!
I love this – I hope you do too.
