A farmer had a cow that fell in the well and got hurt. The farmer weighed the situation and decided that the effort of pulling out the cow was not worth it. So he along with the villagers decided to bury the cow by throwing mud on it inside the well to relief the cow from its pain. When the mud fell on the cow's back, it shook it off and tried to take a step up. Continuing this act led to the well getting filled with mud and the cow came out on its own.
Similarly we must never give up and surrender to any adverse situation in life. We must remain calm when life throws difficult challenges at us, as remaining calm will help us think clearly. When we accept the situation, we are able to bear the pain and the struggle involved with the adverse situation. By doing this, we will always be able to turn any adverse situation in life into something right for us.
Feel the moment, hear the sounds, The birds are chirping, cars are loud, But feel the moment and remember this, The moment is now, don't let it miss. Focus the mind, in the moment right now, Notice this which you missed some how, The tree next door, a pretty little flower, A moment you lost in the city's rush hour. You run for money, you run for fame, Living in the past or a future aim, But the moment is now, a moment to swirl, This moment right now will change your world. -- Karan Parwani
There are moments in life which pulls you into a rage, that leads to arguments, fights, etc. Today the world around us, people are easily getting pulled into a fit of rage on the smallest mistake/comment of another person. But we need to remain sane as far as possible. When someone calls out to you or says bad things to you, we must learn to remain calm and not react to such moments in life. Ignoring foolishness is not a sign of weakness, rather a sign of wisdom.
If someone says "You are an idiot", and you react to that, it only shows that you believe yourself to be an idiot, only don't want to hear it from another person's mouth. But if you choose not to react to such comments of other people, it only shows that you are in control of your thoughts and are the wise one. You need to check and decide for yourself, if you let the world around control you, or are you really in control of yourself.
