The Mirror of Life !

A person once approached his Guru and asked “My workers are not true to me. My children, wife and the entire world is very selfish. Nobody is truthful.”

Guru looked at him and smiled. He said, “Let me tell you a story.”

There was once a village which had a room with 1000 mirrors. One small girl used to  go inside and play. Seeing thousands of children around her she was joyful.She would clap her hands and all the 1000 children would clap back. She considered this place as the world’s happiest place and visited often.

This same place was visited by a sad person. He saw around him thousands of sad and angry men. He got scared and raised his hands to hit them and in return 1000 hands lifted to hit him back. This is the worst place in the world he thought and left that place.

This world is also similar to the room with 1000 mirrors. What we let out of us is what the society gives  back to us. Keep your heart like a child and assume positive intent and good will come back to you in more ways than you thought possible.

Now here is a question for the reader – What are you seeing in your mirror? What are you learning about your inner self from this mirror?


I am a software consultant by profession and reside in Hyderabad, India. I love to travel, listen to music, cook and make friends.
