I'M EVER LIMITED; THAT ALL THE TRUTH HERE!

STORY I

The boy/young man of 19 seeing his dad a little more authoritative remarked to a well wisher that his closest friend would be caring better for him than his dad. The well-wisher straightaway asked the boy, “If so, why aren't you living with your friend?”

The boy/young man got hurt beyond, instantly packed a few of his items and left to the friend’s place. The father was worried but the well-wisher was firm. On the 3rd day, there was a call from the boy/young man saying, "I'm with my friend!” The well-wisher replied with a smile, “Don’t worry! We're coming to pick you up!” And the reply was just silence alone!


STORY II

The boy grew up to a man early thirties. He was once transferred to a distant place and there a colleague of him repeatedly was inviting him home. Feeling for his friend, the man one Sunday traveled 2 hrs to the friend's place and as he pressed the calling bell, the colleague opened the door and seeing his friend instantly remarked, “Oh! You came all the way so much distance to see us? Really surprising.. Come in!”

Back home when the man discussed the event with his well-wisher, the gentleman smiled and said, “Here when they invite thus, it’s just a formal way of greeting and bidding bye to others!”


STORY III

Soon he was a man of mid fifties settled in his own ground floor flat. "Here, I erected a temporary extended plastic roofed shelter to prevent some one above directly spilling liquids into my backyard which had become the order of the day. Yesterday only, I caught the culprit above and warned him and he promised not to repeat. I still doubt!" thus he was saying to his friend who visited him when they heard some rattling sound..

The man fuming with anger for the top man doing it again came out with his friend and as they looked up, they saw 3 crows actively moving on the plastic sheet hopping in between for the dried up waste food material thrown earlier and in the process automatically cleaning up the roof area!


STORY IV

Finally, one day the then man of 60s went to attend a Discourse. The Head of the Institute during the Discourse said.. "When the King remarked out of his pain in the heart, 'You have given a father the Greatest pain of seeing his son as Saint instead of a Royal Prince!', the Lord replied, 'I never gave that pain to you.. It is because you only believed that being a King is the highest in life.. Much, much Higher is the Sainthood!'"


EPILOGUE

And thus saying the Head concluded..

"None is truly responsible for the psychological suffering we undergo in our life because we forever understand the life in front as different from what it actually is.

Here, it's better I try to see the Right at the earliest and in case I can't, I should go by the more knowledgeable man's words in the direction simultaneously myself experimenting there and evaluating it. And that is the Level of living expected of an ordinary man like me in the Society and is equally one of my duties here on the Earth.

In the whole process, it's ever Right that I never point out others as the cause of my suffering since here I only believed in the False!"
