Elephant and the Blind Men

  • Once upon a time, there lived six blind men in a village. One day the villagers told them, "Hey, there is an elephant in the village today."

    They had no idea what an elephant is. They decided, "Even though we would not be able to see it, let us go and feel it anyway." All of them went where the elephant was. Everyone of them touched the elephant.

    "Hey, the elephant is a pillar," said the first man who touched his leg.

    "Oh, no! it is like a rope," said the second man who touched the tail.

    "Oh, no! it is like a thick branch of a tree," said the third man who touched the trunk of the elephant.

    "It is like a big hand fan" said the fourth man who touched the ear of the elephant.

    "It is like a huge wall," said the fifth man who touched the belly of the elephant.

    "It is like a solid pipe," Said the sixth man who touched the tusk of the elephant.

    They began to argue about the elephant and everyone of them insisted that he was right. It looked like they were getting agitated. A wise man was passing by and he saw this. He stopped and asked them, "What is the matter?" They said, "We cannot agree to what the elephant is like." Each one of them told what he thought the elephant was like. The wise man calmly explained to them, "All of you are right. The reason every one of  you is telling it differently because each one of you touched the different part of the elephant. So, actually the elephant has all those features what you all said."

    "Oh!" everyone said. There was no more fight. They felt happy that they were all right.

    The Moral of the Story:-

    Is that there may be some truth to what someone says. Sometimes we can see that truth and sometimes not because they may have different perspective which we may not agree too. So, rather than arguing like the blind men, we should say, "Maybe you have your reasons." This way we don’t get in arguments and get a chance to relook in to matter and solve it without any prejudice.

    The Barber Who Didn't Believe

  • A man went to a barber shop to have his hair and his beard cut as always. He started to have a good conversation with the barber who attended him. They talked about so many things and various subjects. Suddenly, they touched the subject of God. The barber said: "Look man, I don't believe that God exists as you say so."

    "Why do you say that?" asked the client. "Well, it's so easy, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God does not exist. Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick people? Would there be abandoned children? If God exists, there would be no suffering nor pain. I can't think of a God who permits all of these things."

    The client stopped for a moment thinking but he didn't want to respond so as to prevent an argument. The barber finished his job and the client went out of the shop. Just after he left the barber shop he saw a man in the street with a long hair and beard (it seems that it had been a long time since he had his hair cut and he looked so untidy).

    Then the client again entered the barber shop and he said to the barber:

    "know what? Barbers do not exist."

    "How come they don't exist?"-asked the barber. "Well I am here and I am a barber."

    "No!" the client exclaimed. "They don't exist because if they did there would be no people with long hair and beards like that man who walks in the street."

    "Ah, barbers do exist, what happens is that people do not come to us."

    "Exactly!"- affirmed the client. "That's the point. God does exist, what happens is people don't go to Him and do not look for Him that's why there's so much pain and suffering in the world."

    Life is a Glass

  • "Life is a Glass given to us to Fill;

    A Busy Life is filling it with as much as it can hold;

    A Hurried Life has had more poured into it than it can contain."

  • Today I decided to quit...

    I quit My Job, My Relationship, My Spirituality, My Life.

    I went to the woods to have one last talk with GOD.

    "GOD", I said.

    "Can you give me one good reason not to quit?"

    His answer surprised me...

    GOD Light
    "Look around", GOD said.

    "Do you see the fern and the bamboo?"

    "Yes", I replied.

    "When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them. I gave them light. 
    I gave them water. The fern quickly grew from the earth. Its brilliant green covered the floor.

    Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo.

    In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful. 
    And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo." GOD said.

    "In year three there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would not quit.

    In year four, again, there was nothing from the bamboo see. I would not quit." GOD said.

    "Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth.

    Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant.

    But, just six months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall. It had spent the five years growing roots. Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive. I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle." GOD said to me.

    "Did you know, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots? I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you. Don't compare yourself to others. " GOD said.

    "The bamboo had a different purpose than the fern. Yet they both make the forest beautiful. Your time will come." GOD said to me."You will rise high"

    "How high should I rise?" I asked.

    "How high will the bamboo rise?" GOD asked in return.

    "As high as it can?" I questioned

    "Yes." GOD said, "Give me glory by rising as high as you can."

    I left the forest and bring back this story.

    I hope these words can help...
    Moral of the Story

    The True King

  • The King of Iran had heard that Birbal was one of the wisest men in the East and desirous of meeting him sent him an invitation to visit his country.

    In due course, Birbal arrived in Iran.

    When he entered the palace, he was flabbergasted to find not one but six kings seated there.

    All looked alike. All were dressed in kingly robes. Who was the real king?

    The very next moment he got his answer. Confidently, he approached the king and bowed to him.

    "But how did you identify me?" the king asked, puzzled.

    Birbal smiled and explained: "The false kings were all looking at you, while you yourself looked straight ahead. Even in regal robes, the common people will always look to their king for support."

    Overjoyed, the king embraced Birbal and showered him with gifts.

    Men reaction

  • A guy, sitting outside his home about to be evicted from his house, was contemplating how the future would be after he had divorced his wife, lost his Children and lost his job.

    He notices a crate of empty beer bottles and walks up to it.

    He takes out an Empty bottle, smashing it into the concrete wall swearing,
    "You are the reason I don' t have a wife",

    Second bottle, "You are the reason I don't have my Children",

    Third bottle "You are the reason I lost my job".

    He notices the Fourth bottle is sealed and still full of beer.

    He takes the Bottle, puts it aside and says….

    "Stand aside my dear friend, I know you were Not Involved."
