There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was
blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He
was always there for her. He loved her unconditionally.
One day the blind girl told her boyfriend, ‘If I
could only see the world, I will marry you.’
He asked her, ‘Now that you can see the world, will you
marry me?’ The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that
he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids frightened & shocked her.
She hadn’t expected that. The thought of looking at them
the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him.
Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to
her saying: ‘Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for
before they were yours, they were mine.’
A gift of vision he had given her, and yet to him it revealed her true colors.
This is how the human mind often works when our status
changes. Only a very few remember what life was like before,
and who was always by their side in the most painful
Life Is a Gift, Love is a CHOICE
So, before you say an unkind word – Think of someone who
can’t speak. Send them love instead.
Before you complain about the taste of your food – Think of
someone who has nothing to eat. Send them love to nourish their soul.
Before you complain about your husband or wife – Think of
someone who’s crying out to GOD for a companion. Send them love to comfort them.
Before you complain about being alone and lonely- Think of those who are trapped in abusive relationships searching desperately a way out. Send them love so they might find peace.
Today before you complain about life – Think of someone who
died too early on this earth. Send their spirit and their loved ones love.
Before you complain about your children – Think of someone
who desires children but they’re barren. Send them love so they may find and embrace their inner child.
Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn’t
clean or sweep – Think of the families who are living in the
streets. Send them love so they might fin comfort.
Before whining about the distance you drive Think of
someone who walks the same distance with their feet. Send them love.
And when you are tired and complain about your job – Think
of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had
your job or any job. Send them love, so they may find abundance.
But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning
another – Remember that not one of us is perfect. Send them love. They are reflecting to you.. Love YOU.
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down – Put a
smile on your face and think: you’re alive and still
around. Send love to the world and to yourself… Fill your heart and soul with love so you may find peace.
Just remember in life, things are never what they seem….
The moral of this story in case you didn’t get it is… how often when we reject others are we actually rejecting ourselves?
We were obese, lose the weight and suddenly we judge others who are struggling. Or maybe we are in an abusive relationship that we hide, and yet judge others who are in an abusive relationship. We mock and condem those who have the courage to be themselves, only because we are afraid to shine our own light.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are we not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone.
And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others.
