BE YOUR TRUE SELF.

A MAN CAME TO A MASTER, AND ASKED, “HOW IS IT YOU ARE ALWAYS SO FULL OF BLISS? HOW CAN I BECOME LIKE U? PLEASE TELL ME, MASTER.”

“WAIT FOR SOMETIME.WHEN EVERYONE IS GONE, I WILL ANSWER YOUR QUESTION.IT IS A SECRET,” REPLIED THE MASTER.

PEOPLE WERE COMING AND GOING ALL DAY.THE WAITING MAN WAS GETTING EXASPERATED.BUT, HE DID WANT TO LEARN THE SECRET.THE SUN WENT DOWN IN THE WEST.MOST PEOPLE HAD GONE.THE MAN WAITED TILL THE ATTENDANT TOO LEFT, AND THE MASTER WAS ALONE. “SIR, TELL ME THE SECRET NOW.”

THE MASTER SAID IN A LOW TONE, “DO YOU SEE THAT BIG TREE OUTSIDE THE WINDOW?”

“YES, I DO.”

“GOOD”, THE MASTER SAID CONTINUING IN HIS CONFIDENTIAL MANNER, “THEY HAVE BEEN STANDING SIDE-BY-SIDE FOR YEARS, I HAVE NEVER HEARD THE BUSH ASK THE BIG TREE, ‘WHY ARE YOU SO BIG, AND I SO SMALL.” THAT IS WHY THEY BOTH ARE HAPPY.THE TREE IS LARGE, AND THE BUSH IS SMALL.YET, EACH IS UNIQUE IN ITSELF.THE BUSH DOES NOT LOOK AT THE TREE AND SAY, ‘I WISH I WERE AS TALL AND STRONG LIKE U,” AND THE TREE ENVY THE BUSH AND SAY, ‘I WISH I WERE AS COMPACT AND CLOSE TO THE GROUND LIKE YOU”.”

KNOW YOURSELF, AND BE WHAT YOU REALLY ARE.

ACCEPTANCE OF ONE”S SELF IS THE SECRET OF LASTING JOY.
