of it that having born a human being... we have already passed a series of 7.3
million manifestations as an insect, plant and animal life. It is only after crossing
through 7.3 million manifestations... a soul atman residing within our heart manifests
the form of a human being... never before!
a human being... why the bickering still! For the simple reason
that unable to bear the torment of others we develop anger and hate
and unable to forgive those who may be friend or foe... we continue
living a pitiable life. Why can we not forgive the ignorant!
I shall illustrate
with an example - (and God bless you thereafter!)
One day it so
happened... by the side of a river that was swollen with floodwaters
a passerby noticed a saint in a very peculiar stance of life. This
saint who was habitual of taking a morning bath in the river...
Continued with the routine in spite of the fact that river was in
taking a dip... the Saint noticed a crab floating by. It was struggling to save
itself. The Saint picked up the crab in his hand and there was a piercing cry.
The crab had bit the Saint.
the commotion the hand of the Saint gave a jerk and the crab fell back into the
river. To the surprise of the passerby... the Saint again picked up the crab...
again the whole story repeated and again the Saint picked up the crab. The third
time when it happened... the passerby went to the Saint asking for the reason!
the Saint said flabbergasted the passerby. He simply could not believe his ears.
The Saint simply said a crab born low in the animal world is unable to forego
his habit of biting... Then how can me... A human being let go of my habit of
compassion and forgiving one. I out of compassion pick him up, the crab owing
to his habit bites... none is wrong. We are hardened by our habits.
the journey of life... we should continue doing what we truly desire from our
heart... unmindful of what others do. Deliberate mischief if played by others
must be definitely countered but not actions that are indeliberate. Let go off
the habit of not forgiving people. Forgiveness is a tool that not only makes
friends but friends for life. If you desire the best in life, Practice forgiveness
to its best!
