The Third Highest Peak in the Word
One who has turned his life into a bundle of hurts and wounds is going to be the cause of much suffering in the lives of many people around him. Since suffering has become his life’s breath, wherever he goes he will carry the germs of suffering with him. So an unhappy man does not suffer alone, he shares his sorrow with everybody he comes in contact with. Walking or Sitting, Speaking or Silent, Active or Inactive, he emits and transmits the vibes of unhappiness like nuclear fallout all around him. An unhappy person really adds to the unhappiness of the whole world.
Allways Remember, we can share with others only that which we have, not what we don’t have.
Life consists of both pleasure and pain, happiness and misery. And it depends on us what we choose to see and take. My own understanding is that if someone sees rightly and loves rose flowers, then soon the thorns on the rosebush will disapper from his sight. Eyes attuned to the beauty and fragrance of the flower don’t take notice of the thorns. Not that the thorns disapper from the bush; they become part and parcel of the grandeur of the roses, and one sees them as something protecting the roses.They are really to protect the flowers, not to hurt anyone.
But if someone sees only thorns he will miss the flowers. He will say, “How can there be any flowers in the midst of so many piercing thorns and thistles?” He cannot even think of flowers where thorns abound, for him thorns became the truth and flowers disappear like dreams.
But for a lover of flowers, thorns become illusory and flowers the truth.
Possitive people sees roses/flowers, Negative people sees thorns, Confused people not understands anything-just they argue….& trying to apply logic.!!
It is interesting to know that when you raise your right leg
you are wholly with your right leg,
when you raise your left leg
you are completely with the left leg.
In the same way
you have to be whole when you speak,
you have to be whole when you are silent.
Why do we shout in anger ?
When you argue, do not let your hearts get distant;
do not say words that distance each other.
A saint asked his disciples, ‘Why do we shout in anger ? Why do people shout at each other, when they are upset ?’
Disciples thought for a while; one of them said, ‘Because we lose our calm, we shout for that.’
‘But, why to shout when the other person is just next to you?’ asked the saint. ‘Isn’t it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice ? Why do you shout at a person when you’re angry ?’
Disciples gave some other answers,but none satisfied the saint.
Finally he explained, ‘When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance, they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other, through that great distance.’
Then the saint asked, ‘What happens when two people fall in love ? They don’t shout at each other, but talk softly, why ? Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is very small….’The saint continued, ‘When they love each other even more, what happens ? They do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and that’s all. That is how close two people are, when they love each other.’
Love to all,
