I remembered an old fable or moral. I have been going over it in my mind. It went something like this.
“there is an old man walking down a country road. He is leading his donkey, pulling a cart filled with firewood. Along the way he meets a family. Their cart loaded with all of their worldly possessions as they are looking to relocate. They ask him, “what are the people in the next village like?
He responded with his own question. What were the people like in your last village? They responded with a whole list of complaints: they were mean, uncaring, gossipy……. Not nice people to be around to the point we just had to move.
His response was: Well you are going to find the people in that next village to be about the same.
He carried on down the path and within a very short distance comes across another family also moving. They ask the same question. What are the people in the next village? He responds with the same question back to them. What were the people like in your last village? Their answer was different than the last. Oh, they were kind, loving wonderful people that we hated to leave.
His rely to their question was the unchanged: You will find the people in the next village to be the same.
The same question asked about the same next village. How could the answers be so totally different.
The old man was wise enough to be able to see the different mind set or attitude of those asking the question. It is that attitude or mind set that makes all the difference.
We reap what we sow. Give off warm loving positive vibes and it will be returned many times over.
Give off negative, grumpy less than kind loving vibes and they too will be returned many times over.
