MY FAVORITE PIECE OF CONTENT! #BlogchatterBlogHop


There was a problem and all were trying to resolve it. 5 minutes of struggle continued from every one's end. The highly energetic young man of 20s intervened saying that he could do it and resolved it the next moment..

"You should have done it before itself. We were struggling!"

He was squarely blamed..

On another day, a similar thing repeated. The young man of mid 20s knowing the solution was silent for a while. Half hr passed and nothing progressed. They asked the young man to try..

"I may not know.. Anyhow let me try.."

Saying thus he solved the issue..

"Great! You've done a job which none of us could do!"

He was instantly praised..

The young man mused,

"KEEPING SILENT AS MUCH IS THE SAFE WAY OF LIVING!"

Years rolled by.. The young man grown to the man of mid 30s approached a wiseman one evening and said,

“Sir! I've a problem.. All along, I tried my best to excel everywhere but came out average. I see around many of my contemporaries who were lesser earlier suddenly going up the ladder. What's the way for me to excel in my field?”

The wiseman asked him to wait and became busy with others..

The man’s patience started running out. He controlled his tension and waited for some more time but there was no word from the wise man. The man could no more hold and said,

“Sir! You did not tell me anything!”

But the wise man continued avoiding him. At length the man lost his patience and asked,

“Sir! May I leave now? I've other issues to attend.. No time!”

The wise man suddenly smiled and said,

“Dear! The real solution to an unsolvable problem in life is..

'Leave the issue that bothers you beyond and get on to the next one needing your attention!'

Here, my silence straightaway firmed up that message in you!"

The middle aged man felt at that point of time,

"KEEPING SILENT AS MUCH IS THE GOLDEN WAY OF LIVING!"

Years went by further. Finally there was a day, when the then man of mid 50s faced the toughest problem of his life. On the advice of some people, he visited the Great Saint of the neighborhood Ashram for the solution. Soon he was lead to the Great Saint sitting in Meditation closing His eyes. The man sat in silence in front of the Saint..

At length, the Great Man opened His eyes and enquired the man silently through hand gestures whether he was feeling better for which the man without his knowledge silently nodded his head in affirmation. As the man silently came out of the Ashram, to his surprise he found himself extra calm in spite of his problem remaining the same which any how he had to live thru'..

Fianlly, the grey haired man understood deep in heart,

"KEEPING SILENT AS MUCH IS THE TRUE WAY OF LIVING!"
