“Jumping at several small opportunities may get us there
more quickly than waiting for one big one to come along.”
One day Buddha was walking through a village. A very angry and rude
young man came up and began insulting him. "You have no right teaching
others," he shouted. "You are as stupid as everyone else. You are
nothing but a fake."
Buddha was not upset by these insults. Instead he asked the young man
"Tell me, if you buy a gift for someone, and that person does not take
it, to whom does the gift belong?"
The man was surprised to be asked such a strange question and answered,
"It would belong to me, because I bought the gift."
The Buddha smiled and said, "That is correct. And it is exactly the
same with your anger. If you become angry with me and I do not get
insulted, then the anger falls back on you. You are then the only one
who becomes unhappy, not me. All you have done is hurt yourself."
If you are right then there is no need to get angry
And if you are wrong then you don't have any right to get angry.
Patience with family is love,
Patience with others is respect,
Patience with self is confidence, and
Patience with GOD is faith.
Never Think Hard about PAST,
It brings Tears...
Don't Think more about FUTURE,
It brings Fears...
Live this Moment with a Smile,
It brings Cheers.!!!!
