Monday Morning Inspiration # 86

"A son and his father were walking on the mountains.Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams: "AAAhhhhh! !!" . To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain:"AAAhhhhh! !!"

He yells: "Who are you?"
He receives the answer: "Who are you?"

And then he screams to the mountain: "I admire you!"
The voice answers: "I admire you!"

Angered at the response, he screams: "Coward!"
He receives the answer: "Coward!"

He looks to his father and asks: "What's going on?"
The father smiles and says: "My son, pay attention."

Again the man screams: "You are a champion!"
The voice answers: "You are a champion!"

The boy is surprised, but does not understand.
Then the father explains: "People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE.
It gives you back everything you say or do. Our life is simply a reflection of our actions. If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart. If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence.

This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life; Life will give you back everything you have given to it."

YOUR LIFE IS NOT A COINCIDENCE. IT'S A REFLECTION OF YOU!"

Shalini ,

It is superb . Life is really a reflection or ECHO of our thoughts , words , and deeds.

The More Good things you do , the
better will you be your life .

Focus on things you would like to be ECHOED back to you .

@Amma

Thank you so much :) I for myself have seen that life's happenings are based on the deeds we do ..

But, this story jus' brought in the realization of this great fact :)

@Vas

It's so simple and yet so true . I think this would be one of my favourite MMI s :)

asha said...

Very true, shalini, in other words, as you sow , so you reap.
Values of life are hidden in simple things and your MMI brings them out for us. Keep writing girl, you have a regular in me now.

Shalini Gowrisankar said...

@Asha

Thank you dear :) So true, it is the small things that make us understand the way life is :)

karthik s said...

i agree with the above comments.. this surely seems to be ur best mmi till date.. the reason i say till date is cos u jus keep comin up with better MMIs every week.. ;)

Shalini Gowrisankar said...

@Karthik

Ah ! Thank you very much.. I hope I would be able to continue giving better MMI's each time :)

chithra said...

It was fantastic shalini. It reminds me of the saying by gandhiji
"You must be the change you want to see in the world". I feel many a times
our actions/deeds though positive are not sound enough to be echoed back. As you pointed out rightly if you want something more out of the world then you should give that "something" more to the world than you do already.
keep up the good work..

Shalini Gowrisankar said...

@Chithra

That was short, sweet and yet very powerful. Simple things, if only followed will make life simple and beautiful :)

Sripriya said...
