Today, we live in a cold world where they prove the phrase “every man for himself” right with each passing day. Greed has blinded people badly and made them self-centered and inconsiderate. Selflessness has become such an uncommon sight now that it shocks people more when they see a man putting others before himself. Things are so complicated that it doesn’t make sense when we think of someone to blame. Did they do it to us, or did we do this to ourselves? Weren’t we only trying to survive? We could’ve broken the cycle and set things right but why does it have to be us? Why can’t anyone else break the silence first? Is it worse to be bystanders to injustice or to risk the safety of our loved ones?
If we were to count the small things that made the world what it is today the list wouldn’t end. But the question right now isn’t who did wrong, it’s how to fix it? Where do we start? How do we prioritize? Who do we go to? The answer is simple—we start with ourselves. We may want to help and change the world but it’s not easy. However, if we start with ourselves, be more considerate towards others, stop being judgemental and learn to love everything and everyone with a more open heart, then maybe we can save the world.
Below we have a wonderful story of a farmer who witnessed probably the most purest thing in his life. It’s a lesson for everyone. Scroll on below to read.
It seemed like a very normal encounter.
The farmer was happy to assist in whatever way possible. Little did he know, what was about to happen next would move him completely.
Life is often quite deceiving. We think differently of people just because they don’t share the same perception as we do. We judge them, look down on them, and think to ourselves that we know better than them. But that’s not true. We never know just how much goodness someone is carrying within them. Sometimes, it’s just enough to light up the whole world…
The farmer thought he was helping the boy by guiding him. But he had no idea the boy would teach him something instead!
Do you see how important is to be more considerate towards others? If we keep thinking of only ourselves and keep putting ourselves first by thinking that “the world would do just fine without my help” then we’re not making a difference. If we just open our hearts a little more then maybe a day will come when the world will know peace.
