Be The Sun, Be The Light, Be The Change
One day, the wind sees a man who wears a big coat walking on the beach.
The wind wants to prove that he is the mightiest force of nature, so he challenges the sun.
He says to the sun, “I am mightier than you are. Let’s prove it by seeing who can blow off the man’s coat. The sun laughs and replies, “Sure, my friend, go for it.”
So the wind starts to blow strongly, trying to blow off the man’s coat.
The problem is that the stronger the wind blows, the tighter the man holds on to his coat. After a while, the wind exhausts himself, gives up and says to the sun,
“Well, I can’t do it, and if I can’t do it, you can’t do it either.” The sun laughs again, and says, “I don’t have to do anything. I just need to be what I am.” Then the sun quietly rises, the weather becomes so hot, the man takes off his coat.”
Most people are resistant to change; many are like the man with his coat.
They wear a big thick coat of negativity, sadness, depression, and unhappiness. If you adapt the method of wind by trying to change them with force, they will hold on to their negative emotion more than ever before. If you want to help them take off and let go of their unwanted emotions, you must learn from the sun.
When people face the sun, they don’t see the shadows. When people face the light, they don’t see the darkness.
So Be The Sun, Be The Light, Be The Change. Demonstrate the values , the traits that you want to see in them.
Soon , you will experience a liberational change among your circle of friends.
People naturally aspire to something higher , even though at times, their aspiration presents itself in forms of envy. That is not a bad thing if you help them transform this envy into a creative energy to produce a desirable outcome for themselves. We are all on the same path of fulfilling our common destiny. So we need to lift each other and ascend together. Be The Sun that shines upon the darkness. Be the source of inspiration, Be the Change you want to see. Be The Power that creates abundance. In being so, you are lifting the world.
