Distance between Love & Heart


Anger Vs Love

 

A Hindu saint who was visiting river Ganges to take bath found a group of family members on the banks, shouting in anger at each other. He turned to his disciples smiled ‘n asked.

 

‘Why do people shout in anger shout at each other?’

 

Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, ‘Because we lose our calm, we shout.’

 

‘But, why should you shout when the other person is just next to you? You can as well tell him what you have to say in a soft manner.’ asked the saint

 

Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the other disciples.

 

 Finally the saint explained, .

 

‘When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other to cover that great distance.

 

What happens when two people fall in love? They don’t shout at each other but talk softly, Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is either nonexistent or very small…’

 

The saint continued, ‘When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper ‘n they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other ‘n that’s all. That is how close two people are when they love each other.’

 

He looked at his disciples and said.

 

‘So when you argue do not let your hearts get distant, Do not say words that distance each other more, Or else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return.’

A Hole In The Fence !!!


A HOLE IN THE FENCE

 

There once was a little boy who had a bad temper.

 

His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.

 

The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence.

 

Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down.

 

He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence….

 

Finally the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all.

 

He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper.

 

The day passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.

 

The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.

 

He said, “You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence.”

 

The fence will never be the same.

 

When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one.

 

You can put a knife in a man and draw it out.

 

It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry, the wound is still there.

 

A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.

 

Friends and loved ones are a very rare jewel, indeed.

 

They make you smile and encourage you to succeed.

 

They lend an ear, they share a word of praise, and they always want to open their hearts to us.

 

Water your relationships with kindness… and they will grow.

 

So be careful little lips what you say…! And you won’t chase friendships away.
