What's Your Nature?

April 06, 2017

We learn things  from our own experience and also from the experience of others. If lessons learnt from our experiences are utilized well it  would bring positive result to us. 

Here is a short story to give us more experience in life and make us a better person. Enjoy!!!...

A wise old man was sitting at the river bank, he saw a cat that had fallen into the river struggling to save itself from drowning. 

The old man decided to save the cat. He stretched out his hand towards the cat but the cat scratched him. 

He pulled his hand back in pain. However, a few minutes later he stretched out his hand again to save the cat, but it scratched him again, and again he pulled his hand back in pain. 

A few minutes later he was again trying for the third time!! A man, who was nearby watching what was happening, yelled out, 

"O wise man, you have not learned your lesson the first time, nor the second time, and now you are trying to save the cat a third time?" 

The wise man paid no heed to that man's scolding, and kept on trying until he managed to save the cat. 

He then walked over to the man, and patted his shoulder saying:, 

"My son... it is in the cat's nature to scratch, and it is in my nature to love and have sympathy.
 Why do you want me to let the cat's nature overcome mine?_ 

"My son, treat people according to your nature, not according to theirs, no matter what they are like and no matter how numerous their actions that harm you and cause you pain sometimes.

And do not pay heed to all the voices that loudly call out to you to leave behind your good qualities merely because the other party is not deserving of your noble actions. 

So never regret the moments you gave happiness to someone, even if that person did not deserve it. 

God treats us according to His nature, just think where we would be if He were to treat us as per our nature..

I hope you have learnt some lesson here.

What is your nature???
