Hello reader, I am a very talkative person I like to share my perception towards everything. The work I am doing with my pen is also a way of sharing my perception. Today I am sharing a very interesting experience of my life.
During one of my journey I met a lady who changed my perception towards LIFE completely. Before I met her I always thought that happiness is good & sorrow is bad but she completely changed my outlook towards LIFE by saying “Everyone wants happiness, no one needs pain. But it is not possible to get rainbow without a little rain. That’s LIFE” and to make her point more clear she shared a very interesting story with me, which now I am going to tell you.
So wish you a “HAPPY READING”
It says that the more hurt and pain you have gone through in your life, the stronger and more beautiful your heart will be……………………..
One day, a young man was standing in the middle of the town proclaiming that he had the most BEAUTIFUL HEART in the whole valley.
A large crowd gathered and they all admired his heart for it was perfect. There was not a mark or a flow in it. Yes, they all admired his heart for it was perfect. There was not a single mark or a flaw in it. Yes, they all agreed it truly was the most BEAUTIFUL HEART they had ever seen. The young man was very proud and boasted more loudly about his BEAUTIFUL HEART.
Suddenly, an old man appeared at the front of the crowd and said, “ Your heart is not nearly as beautiful as mine.”
The crowd and the young man looked at the old man’s heart. It was beating strongly, but it was full of scars. It had place where pieces had been removed and other pieces put in, but they didn’t fit quite right and there were several jagged edges. In fact, in some places there were deep gouges where whole pieces were missing.
The people stared. How can he say his heart is more beautiful?
The young man looked at the old man’s heart and saw its state and laughed.
“You must be joking,” he said.
“Compare your heart with mine. Mine is perfect and yours is a mess of scars and tears.”
Yes, said the old man.
“Yours is perfect looking but I would never trade mine with you. You see, every scare represents a person to whom I have given my LOVE. I tear out a piece of my heart and give it to them and often they give me a piece of their heart which fits into the empty place aren’t exact.
I have some rough edges, which I cherish because they remind me of the LOVE we shared. Sometime I have given pieces of my heat away, and the other person hasn’t returned a piece of his heart to me.
There are the empty gouges …………… giving LOVE is taking a chance.
Although these gouges are painful, they stay open, reminding me of the LOVE I have for those people too,
and I hope someday they may return and fill the space………I have waiting for them
So now do you see what true beauty is??????
The young man stood silently with tears running down his cheeks. He walked up to the old man, reached into his young and beautiful heart and ripped a piece out. He offered it to the old man with trembling hands.
The old man took his offering, placed it in his heart and then took a piece from his old heart and placed it in the wound in the young man’s heart. It fits, but not perfectly as there were some jagged edges.
After telling me this story that stranger cum friend lady disappeared, but she leave me with that beautiful heart which I always wish to have ……….
Now I don’t think pain, sorrow, hurts are bad, these all thing come to teach us what is valuable and what is not. They all make us more strong and beautiful only if we can LOVE like we have never been hurt.
Just go through life spreading your love and be loved in return and believe me you’ll be a richer and a beautiful life than a billionaire.
As some one says, “Never blame a Day in your LIFE, Good days gives you HAPPINESS, Bad days gives you experience. Both are essential in LIFE”
So try to make your HEART THE MOST BEAUTIFUL one………………….
