In a fine morning a teacher entered into a classroom. After taking attendance, she draws a black spot in the big white board hanging on the wall. Then she asked the students:
`My dear students, what are you watching in the board? `
The students shouted, `Madam, we are watching a black spot in the board. `
`How strange! Are you not observing THE BIG WHITE BOARD? `
Generally we are all like this. Always we are seeking the black spots in others. We are not observing the bright side of our near and dears. We all think that I am the right person; everything in my life is OK. We blame our friends; our bosses, our parents, our family members. We blame everyone except ourselves. We think blaming to everyone is my right. But that is not the correct way.
Every man has his/her limitations. They have their inner qualities also. Every man in this world has some good qualities. They are not zero. Human life is precious. Each and every one of us there is infinite potentiality, infinite energy. Ignoring this fact, we are only observing the darker side of others. Always we are busy in finding fault in others. As a result our life is restless and miserable. We are not getting peace in our mind.
If we want to overcome this sad situation in our life, we have to change our attitude. There are two types of attitude – the positive attitude (PA) and negative attitude (NA). We have to cultivate the PA more in our life. This is a matter of practice. Always try to see the brighter side of everything. Always try to think the good qualities of others, good habits of others, good character of others. Don’t think for a moment, the bad qualities of others, as this will make a deep impression in our mind. Always think positively and make it a habit.
The last message of Sri Ma Sarada Devi -
``My child, if you want peace, then do not look into anybody’s faults. Look into your own faults. Learn to make the world your own. No one is a stranger, my child; the whole world is your own. ``
