One day one person climbed up a mountain where a hermit woman was meditating.
She had taken refuge and was asked:

“What are you doing here alone in such a solitude place?”
To which she replied:

“I have lots of work !”

“And how can you have so much work?
I don’t see anything around you here…?”

*“I have to train two hawks and two eagles, assure two rabbits, discipline one snake, motivate a donkey and tame a lion…..”*

“And, where have they gone that I don’t see them?”

*“I have them all inside here within me…!!*

✓ The *HAWKS* stare on *everything that is presented to me, good or bad, I have to work on them to SEE ONLY GOOD THINGS. They are my EYES.*

✓ The two *EAGLES* with their claws *hurt and destroy, I have to train them not to hurt. They are my HANDS.*

✓ *RABBITS* want to go where they want, at the same time they *do not want to face difficult situations, I have to teach them TO BE CALM even if there is suffering or stumbling.  They are my FEET.*

✓ The *DONKEY* is always tired, *stubborn and does not want to carry the load each time I walk. That is my BODY!*

✓ The most difficult to tame is the *”SNAKE.”*  Although it is locked in a strong cage with 32 bars, *it is always ready to sting, bite and poison anyone nearby. I have to discipline it…  that’s my TONGUE.*

✓ I also have one *LION.*  Oh … *how proud, vain, he thinks that “he is the king.” I have to tame him. And that’s my EGO.*

So you see, my friend, I have  lots of work….. “

*Think & Reflect !* 🤔
We all may have the same — *Lots to work on ourselves !*
*So Stop Criticising, Evaluating and Judging others !*
*Let’s FIRST work on OURSELVES !!*.             Happy New Year
