It’s Beautifully written and worth a read for understanding what life is all about..
A man who has gone out of his town comes back and finds that his house is on fire.
Many people were ready to give double price for the house, but he had never agreed for any price and now it is just burning before his eyes.
He becomes very sad and tears start rolling down his eyes 👀
“Don't be worried. I sold it yesterday and at a very good price ― three times. The offer was so good I could not wait for you. Forgive me."
Father said, “Thank God, it's not ours now!"
Please think about it!
Just a moment before he was not a watcher, he was attached.
It is the same house, the same fire, everything is the same; BUT now he is not concerned.
Then the second son comes running, and he says to the father, "What are you doing? You are smiling ― and the house is on fire?"
The father said, "Don't you know, your brother has sold it?"
Again, everything changes!!
Tears which had disappeared, have come back to the father's eyes, his smile is no more there, his heart is beating fast.
He is again attached.
And then the third son comes, and he says, “That man is a man of his word. I have just come from him. He said, It doesn't matter whether the house is burnt or not, it is mine.
And I am going to pay the price that I have settled for.
It’s just the feeling that
"I am the owner and or I am not the owner of the house!" That makes the entire difference.
This simple methodology of watching the mind, that you have nothing to do with it makes all the difference...
All are from other sources, all are borrowed ― either dumped by others on us or dumped by us upon ourselves but nothing is ours...
