Beauty And Happiness
A Story By Kahlil Gibran:
In the deep sea, two oysters were talking to each other. First one said,” I have a very great pain within me. It is heavy and round and I am in distress.”
Second one replied with haughty satisfaction ,” God is so great, I am so happy. I am well and whole both within and without.”
At the moment, a crab, who was hearing the words of both, said to the one who was well and whole both within and without ,” yes, you are well and whole; but the pain that your neighbour bears is a pearl of exceeding beauty.”
Just Contemplate it. Would you like to interpolate a relation between happiness and beauty?
Fields bear the pain of being ploughed to grow beautiful plants.
A mother bears the pain to unleash the utmost beauty of creativity.
Sun burns itself to light the world.
Thorns grow before the roses bloom.
Even trees have to be naked before having beautiful leaves.
The beauty of one's deeds will certainly ovecome the pain of one's sorrows. Very few are so fortunate to do so. Always there were people who did this. Buddha did; Mahavira did; Jesus did; Gandhi did; Mother Teresa did. Now it's our turn.Would you like to spread beauty at the cost of your sorrows?
