Face reflections

There was a place known as the House of 1000 Mirrors. A small, happy little dog learned of this place and decided to visit. When he arrived, he bounced happily up the stairs to the doorway of the house. He looked through the doorway with his ears lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as it could. 

To his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000 other happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as fast as his. He smiled a great smile, and was answered with 1000 great smiles just as warm and friendly. As he left the house, he thought to himself, "This is a wonderful place. I will come back and visit it often."

In this same village, another little dog, who was not quite as happy as the first one, decided to visit the house. He slowly climbed the stairs and hung his head low as he looked into the door. When he saw the 1000 unfriendly looking dogs staring back at him, he growled at them and was horrified to see 1000 little dogs growling back at him. As he left, he thought to himself, "That is a horrible place, and I will never go back there again." 

All the faces in the world are mirrors. What kind of reflections do you see in the faces of the people you meet depends on you. You have a choice!

Be constructive

Peace of mind begins in life only when we stop comparing and expecting a better one each time. We compare our colleagues in employment, our relatives, our neighbours, friends etc. Forgetting our present, we imagine the future and develop expectations. When things do not happen as expected, we get frustrated.

Let us believe that if we deserve we will get. Its our part to be constructive, harmless and concerned.

Need not be serious

Life is like a race in our childhood where we will run with a spoon and lemon. If the lemon falls, there is no point in coming first in the race.

There is no point in having wealth without health, relationships, mental peace. Each one is important. Let our goals be a balanced one for a successful life.

Many times we err in expecting perfection to the core and loose peace of mind.

We need not be serious for everything , but we need to be sincere.
