I was studying in the 6th standard in the village school
One lazy afternoon in the class, the teacher walked in and everyone stood up in respect. Even before the class settled down the teacher signaled me to go towards him.
Though i was a back bencher , i went to him like an obedient pet as he was famous for slapping students. But deep in my mind I always wondered how it felt to be slapped by someone.
My curiosity kept on increasing as i went near him and as soon as my face was at a reachable distance. His hand went up in the air and it reached out to my soft lower ear lobe and like a professional he started squeezing it . I felt of myself as a chewing gum for a few moments.
When he did a few rounds and i had seen enough of butterflies, he told me to go back. As i was going back, i felt like a celebrity as almost a 100 eyes were fixed on me of the classmates
I reached my bench and i was still wondering why it all happened, i couldn’t help but smile while sitting down.
Even before my bums could touch the bench, the teacher gave me yet another signal to go to back to him. This time around i was very confident of the reason and walked up to him in speed and as soon as i reached the distance of his arm span, everything started slowing down.
His hand swung up in the air like a baseball racket and with the perfection of a pro it landed right in the middle of my face, home-run!
It was because of him i realized law of attraction is real ,whether it is for a good or a bad thing.
I am sure he only had the best of intentions, but out of the deep respect we had for teachers in the village none of us students could ask him for the reason. Among all my other teachers , I wish him a great Teacher’s Day. We always learn from them.
May be this is why they say, experience is best teacher ,as even after 25 years of that incident i am still wondering why it all happened..
They say we have 70000 thoughts a day. And for an average person more than half of it is negative and a lot of the rest is about trivial matters.
While it’s not easy to put a full stop to these, the best temporary solution is to drive away negative thoughts with opposite thoughts which im referring to as the mouse trap ( Eg: to pray for or praise the one whome you are jealous against).
The real solution will be to find the source of these negative thoughts and solve it from the roots which is referred to as sealing the hole in the poem (Eg: To settle a long kept partnership or relationship issue rather than to live with it while it occupies half the space of your mind)
Once a plain land made a pact with a farmer, that if you remove the thorns and the weeds from me i shall turn out to be a fruitful land. The farmer agreed and removed all the unwanted obstacles from it, in no time the land turned out to be a lush green garden with flowers of all kinds and fruits of all types.
People from near and far came just to have a look at this great garden and went back satiated in their eyes and stomach with the great hospitality of the farmer. It didnt take long for the news to reach the Mighty King, and He personally came to visit the beautiful garden one day. The farmer welcomed Him with all his warmth and before departing the King praised the farmer for creating such a beautiful garden.
In response , the farmer said to the King with humility “My Lord, the land, the garden and this poor me, all belong to You. I am just a mere care taker and a subject in your kingdom. “The King was impressed with the farmer’s words and became a regular Visitor to the garden and made the farmer among the best of His friends
The Land in the story refers to your heart, the thorns to the malice in the heart, the King to the Creator Himself and the farmer is none other than you.
I Leave the choice to you. Who do you want to become
A mere land owner, a successful farmer or a friend to The Mighty King Himself ..
