Don’t Kill the Messenger/revised

What if the world is a reflection of our minds?  The problems at work, the unexpected sufferings are all the results of our minds.  The delivery of these sufferings may be from people familiar to us, or may even be strangers in the night.  But like a common saying, we don’t kill the messenger that conveys the message.  If we can direct our response not to the messenger, but direct it within ourselves.

If we can direct the response inwards, then anger or worry will not arise when inconveniences occur. What is this response? It is not a feeling of hopelessness in facing an unchangeable fate. But it is the optimism even in suffering, that our good thoughts and actions today will plant a good seed for tomorrow. It is this action that will bring forth messengers that will delivers us blessings in the future.

  1. Beautifully written… Completely agree with directing the response inwards.. It’s easier said than done but if we really put our heart and soul to it, we will be sowing seeds which will bring beautiful fruit later 🙂
