The  Disease  of  Delusion
A PERSON SUFFERED FROM one disease or the other every now and then. He did not get sleep at cause of his illness. He then himself started searching the cause of his illness. 
One day, he called his neighbour and told him, “Sir, you are the cause of my illness.” 
Poor neighbour! He could not understand anything. Then the sick man said, “There is a hen in your house. This hen keeps cackling the whole night. Due to its cackling, I am not able to sleep at night. My health has been spoiled because I am not able to sleep at all. I beg you, stop the cackling of your hen and help me regain my health.”
Then the neighbor said, “Sir, we are all staying in that very house in which this hen is. And we all get very sound sleep. 
Moreover, this hen does not cackle the whole night. In fact, no hen cackles the whole night. Only it cackles early in the morning.” 
The sick person replied, “What you say may be true. But I start worrying as to when this hen will start cackling from the moment I lie down in my bed. I have no other thought except this. I do not have even a wink of sleep due to this constant worry. 
What is it that we can learn from this story? Everybody is the victim of some delusion or the other. 
This delusion causes fear which makes a man sick and weak. Delusion is the cause of man’s downfall. 
A Fable of True Friends
Billy Peck was a farm duck whose dream was to become a tightrope walker. Every day he spent hours out on the rope practicing, encouraged by his faithful friend, Artie Quack. 
Artie was an older duck who had been practicing the art from young. Both of them were a bit flat-footed at it; but they never let that discourage them. They kept training with the hope that someday they will excel.
One day, a new ram arrived at the farm. On seeing the ducks practice, he came over and began praising them. He said they were doing great, and he bet they could cross any distance on that rope of theirs.
This boosted Billy's confidence, despite Artie commenting that he hadn’t noticed any real improvement.
A few days later, Billy found himself with the ram, looking at a deep pit. The ram told Billy that the only way to prove to the world his expertise in ropewalking would be to cross a pit like the one in front of them. The mouth of the pit was much wider than the distance Billy had ever crossed on a rope. 
Artie tried to talk his friend out of it. He wanted him to realise that he wasn’t such a great tightrope walker yet. The ram disagreed, assuring them that Billy Peck was the best tightrope walker in the whole region, and that Artie Quack was just jealous of him. 
Praise blinded the farm duck. He declared haughtily that he would cross the ditch on a tightrope and prove himself. Artie walked away in disgust, refusing to be a part of the misadventure. The rope was tied and Billy set out. 
He had barely crossed half way, when he become nervous and his legs started to shiver. He also realised that his new friend was no more egging him to go on. 
In the next few steps Billy lost his balance and fell into the deep pit and broke his leg. Even as the poor duck was wincing in pain the ram accosted him and promised to throw down the rope to pull him up. But in return the ram asked Billy to get the fresh and juicy berries that were growing on bushes in the pit. 
It finally struck Billy how stupid he was to trust the praise of this selfish ram. But Billy could not stir an inch. When the ram saw that the silly duck was of no use to him anymore, he silently slipped away.
Billy realized that his old friend Artie had been telling him the truth all along. He saw that it couldn’t have been easy for Artie to tell him that he wasn’t a good tightrope walker, and Billy was grateful to have such a good friend who would always tell him the truth...
And Artie really was a good friend, because knowing what was about to happen, he had gone straight off to find a group of wild ducks — old friends of his. These wild ducks flew much better than the poor old farm ducks and Artie prepared a rescue operation with the wild ducks.
Billy asked Artie to forgive him, and Artie happily did so. Billy felt foolish for being tricked by the cunning ram but also fortunate, because helped by his new duck friends, they managed to gather all those wonderful berries, take it to the farm, and have a big party among real friends.
True friends always tell us the truth, even if it’s something we won’t enjoy hearing. Those who give us false praise are not worthy of our trust.
One young man went to apply for a managerial position in a big company. He passed the initial interview, and now would meet the director for the final interview. The director discovered from his CV that the youth's academic achievements were excellent.
 He asked, "Did you obtain any scholarships in school?" The youth answered "no".
“Was it your father who paid for your school fees?"
"My father passed away when I was one year old, it was my mother who paid for my school fees.” he replied.
“Where did your mother work?"
"My mother worked as clothes cleaner.”
The director requested the youth to show his hands. The youth showed a pair of hands that were smooth and perfect.
 “Have you ever helped your mother wash the clothes before?" "Never, my mother always wanted me to study and read more books. Besides, my mother can wash clothes faster than me.
The director said, "when you go home today, go and clean your mother's hands, and then see me tomorrow morning."
 The youth felt that his chance of landing the job was high. When he went back home, he asked his mother to let him clean her hands. His mother felt strange, happy but with mixed feelings, she showed her hands to her son.
 The youth cleaned his mother's hands slowly. His tear fell as he did that. It was the first time he noticed that his mother's hands were so wrinkled, and there were so many bruises in her hands. Some bruises were so painful that his mother winced when he touched it. This was the first time the youth realized that it was this pair of hands that washed the clothes every day to enable him to pay the school fees. The bruises in the mother's hands were the price that the mother had to pay for his education, his school activities and his future.
 After cleaning his mother hands, the youth quietly washed all the remaining clothes for his mother. That night, mother and son talked for a very long time.
 Next morning, the youth went to the director's office. The Director noticed the tears in the youth's eyes, when he asked: "Can you tell me what have you done and learned yesterday in your house?"
 The youth answered," I cleaned my mother's hands, and also finished cleaning all the remaining clothes' “I know now what appreciation is. Without my mother, I would not be who I am today. By helping my mother, only now do I realize how difficult and tough it is to get something done on your own. And I have come to appreciate the importance and value of helping one’s family."
 The director said, "This is what I am looking for in a manager. I want to recruit a person who can appreciate the help of others, a person who knows the sufferings of others to get things done, and a person who would not put money as his only goal in life.”
“You are hired.”
L'arbre à souhaits 
Un voyageur très fatigué s'assit à l'ombre d'un arbre sans se douter qu'il venait de trouver un arbre magique, "l'Arbre à Réaliser des Souhaits".
Assis sur la terre dure, il pensa qu'il serait bien agréable de se retrouver dans un lit moelleux. Aussitôt, ce lit apparut à côté de lui.
Étonné, l'homme s'y installa en disant que le comble du bonheur serait atteint si une jeune fille venait masser ses jambes percluses. La jeune fille apparut et le massa très agréablement.
"J'ai faim, se dit l'homme, et manger en ce moment serait à coup sûr un délice." Une table surgit, chargée de nourritures succulentes. 
L'homme se régala. Il mangea et il but. La tête lui tournait un peu. Ses paupières, sous l'action du vin et de la fatigue, s'abaissaient. Il se laissa aller de tout son long sur le lit, en pensant encore aux merveilleux évènements de cette journée extraordinaire.
"Je vais dormir une heure ou deux, se dit-il. Le pire serait qu'un tigre passe par ici pendant que je dors."
Un tigre surgit aussitôt et le dévora.
Vous avez en vous un Arbre à souhait qui attend vos ordres.
Mais attention, il peut aussi réaliser vos pensées négatives et vos peurs. 
En tout cas, il peut être parasité par elles et se bloquer. 
C'est le mécanisme des soucis, alors ne vous laissez pas piéger.
One day all the employees reached the office and they saw a big advice on the door on which it was written: 
 'Yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth in this company passed away. We invite you to join the funeral in the room that has been prepared in the gym'.
 In the beginning, they all got sad for the death of one of their colleagues, but after a while they started getting curious to know who was that man who hindered the growth of his colleagues and the company itself.
 The more people reached the coffin, the more excitement heated up. Everyone thought: 'Who is this guy who was hindering my progress? Well, at least he died!'. 
One by one thrilled employees got closer to the coffin, and when they looked inside it they suddenly became speechless. They stood nearby the coffin, shocked and in silence, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul.
 There was a mirror inside the coffin: Everyone who looked inside it could see himself. There was also a sign next to the mirror that said: 
'There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your growth: It is you. 
You are the only person who can revolutionize your life. You are the only person who can influence your happiness, your realization and your success. You are the only person who can help yourself. 
 Your life does not change when your boss changes, when your friends change, when your parents change, when your partner changes, when your company changes. Your life changes when you change, when you go beyond your limiting beliefs, when you realize that you are the only one responsible for your life. The most important relationship you can have is the one you have with yourself 
 Examine yourself, watch yourself. Don't be afraid of difficulties, impossibilities and losses: be a winner, build yourself and your reality. It's the way you face Life that makes the difference.

Thought for the day


Often, in your ignorance, you feel small, you feel miserable, you feel that the wicked, greedy and cruel people are all happier than you and unjustifiably so. You are hurt and feel that it is unjust that you, who are so truthful, so loving, so virtuous, should suffer. Just ponder over this. Are they as happy as you imagine and is your condition, as bad as you portray it to be? Investigate for a minute, and you will know the truth yourself. External appearances are often like painted pots of poison. The hearts of people not adhering to Right Conduct know no peace – they are probably as miserable as you, if not more. Believe that Righteousness will never play false; it will ensure greater joy than can be gained through all other means.
