Opening doors without fear
In a land at war, there was a king who caused fright to his enemies since his prisoners, he did not kill them, but he took them to a room where there was a group of archers on one side, and an immense iron gate of the another, on which figures of skulls covered with blood were engraved.
In that room, he made them form a circle and told them:
- You can choose to die to death by my archers or go through that door. Behind that door, I WILL BE WAITING FOR YOU.
All chose to be killed by the archers.
At the end of the war, a soldier who had long served the king, addressed the sovereign and said:
- Sir, can I ask you a question?
- Tell me, soldier.
- Sir, what's behind that door?
The king replied:
- Go, and see for yourself.
The soldier fearfully opened the door, and as he did so, sunlight entered and the light invaded the environment. Finally, surprised, he discovered that the door opened on a road that led. To FREEDOM! The soldier, rapt, looked at his King, who said:
- I gave them the opportunity to make an ELECTION, but out of fear they preferred to die than risk opening this door!
How many doors we do not open for being afraid of the risks?
How many times do we lose freedom and die inside, just because we feel afraid to open the door of our dreams?
Things are not exactly as you think
A girl was waiting for her flight in a waiting room of a large airport. As he had to wait for many hours, he decided to buy a book to kill time. I also buy a packet of biscuits. He sat in a seat in the VIP lounge of the airport so he could rest and read in peace. Next to the seat where the cookie bag was sat a man who opened a magazine and began to read. When she took the first cookie, the man also took one. She felt indignant, but said nothing. He hardly thought: "But, how shameless, if I were more willing, I would give it a blow in the eye so that it will never be forgotten again."
Every time she took a cookie, the man also took one. That left her so indignant that she could not react. When there was barely a cookie left, he thought: "ah ... what will this abuser do now?" Then the man divided the last cookie in half, leaving the other half for her. Ah !! that was too much! He snorted with rage! Then he closed his book and his stuff and headed to the boarding site. When he sat comfortably in his seat, already inside the plane, he looked inside the bag and to his surprise his package of cookies was there ... still intact, lock! He felt such shame. Only then did he perceive how wrong he was, had he forgotten that his cookies were stored inside his bag!
The man had shared his cookies without feeling indignant, nervous, dismayed or upset, while she was very upset, thinking that he was sharing hers with him. And there was no more time for explanations ... or to apologize.
How many times, in our lives, are we eating the cookies of others, and we are not aware of them? Before reaching a conclusion ... observe better! Maybe things are not exactly as you think, do not think what you do not know about people ...
A beautiful love story
The story goes that, a long time ago, a man scolded his 5-year-old daughter for wasting a whole roll of wrapping paper to wrap a box.
The girl, despite the scolding, left the box wrapped under the Christmas tree and the next morning, when everyone was opening the presents, he handed it to his father saying: "This is for you, Daddy."
He, ashamed of the reaction of the previous day and excited, opened the gift. But when he saw that there was nothing inside the box, he said annoyingly to his daughter: "Miss, when you give a gift there must always be something inside."
The little girl, half crying, said: "But Daddy, it's not empty, I filled her with kisses for you."
The father, moved, hugged his daughter and apologized.
Over time, the girl grew up and went to live far away. His father, every time he missed her, put his hand in the box and took out an imaginary kiss. Thus he was filled with all the love his daughter gave him.
When life shakes you
You walk with your cup of coffee and suddenly someone passes by, pushes you and makes your coffee spill everywhere.
- Why did your coffee spill?
- Because someone pushed me
You spilled coffee because you had coffee in the cup. If it had been tea, you would have spilled tea.
What you have in the cup, is what is going to spill.
Therefore, when life shakes you (how sure it will happen) whatever you have inside of you, you will spill.
You can go through life pretending that your cup is full of virtues, but when life pushes you, you will spill what you actually have inside. Eventually the truth comes to light.
So you have to ask yourself. What is in my cup?
When life gets hard, what am I going to spill?
Joy, gratitude, peace, humility?
Or courage, bitterness, hard words or reactions?
Now, work on filling your cup with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, positive and kind words, generosity and love for others.
Whatever your cup is full, you are responsible.
And look that life shakes, shakes more times than you can imagine.
