The Salt and the Lake

The old Master instructed the unhappy young man to put a handful of salt in a glass of water and then to drink it. "How does it taste?" the Master asked. "Not good at all," spat the apprentice.

The Master chuckled and then asked the young man to take another handful of salt and put it in the lake. The two walked in silence to the nearby lake and when the apprentice swirled his handful of salt into the lake, the old man said, "Now drink from the lake."

The Young Couple

A Young Couple Moves Into A New Neighborhood

The Next Morning While They Are Eating Breakfast, the Young Women Sees Her Neighbor Hanging The Wash Outside.
"The Laundry Is Not Very Clean" She Said

"She Doesn't Know How To Wash Correctly, perhaps She Needs Better Laundry Soaps"

Her Husband Looked On But Remained Silent. Every time Her Neighbor Would Hang Her Wash To Dry, the Young Women Would Make The Same Comments.

About One Month Later,
The Women Was Surprised To See A Nice Clean
Wash On The Line And Said To Her Husband :

"Look, She Has Learned How To Wash Correctly. I Wonder Who Taught Her This"

The Husband Said :

I Got Up Early This Morning And Cleaned Our Windows."

And So it is With Life.

What We See When Watching Others Depends

On The Purity Of The Window Through Which We Look!!!
