Re: [ ::: ♥Keep_Mailing♥ ::: ]™ MIND FIXING

very good story of the donkeys and te advice given by the saint.

 A farmer was taking three of his donkeys for sale to the market.

On the way he saw a river and decided to have a dip.

Since he had only two ropes to tie the donkeys to a tree, 
he looked around wondering how to tie  the third one.

He saw a sage and sought his help if he could give him a rope to tie the third donkey. 
The sage did not have a rope but had a suggestion.

He told the farmer, 
"let the third donkey see you tying the other two donkeys to a tree.  
Then you pretend to tie this one also".

The farmer did as he was told and went for a dip in the river. 
Coming back, he thanked the sage and saw that the donkeys 
stood exactly at the same spot where he had left them.

He untied the two donkeys and patted the third one to start moving. 
After going a little distance, imagine his surprise when the third
 donkey stood still at the same spot.

Cajoling, kicking or talking did not help with the donkey, 
refusing to move from the spot. 
The farmer went back to sage, who told him, 
"untie the third donkey".

"But", protested the farmer, 
"I have not tied him". The sage asked, "You know it. 
But does the donkey know that?"

Sure enough the farmer went back and pretended to untie the donkey. 
The donkey moved immediately as though released and
 walked over to join the other two donkeys.

Moral of the story:

We are all, also tied up by too many  imaginary ropes…… 
which are really non-existent. 

The only truth is there are no boundaries in real life and 
anyone can stretch to any extent. Don't we all see records being broken,
 every time, everywhere and every day?

Our mind is a sacred enclosure into which nothing harmful can enter except
 with our permission. 
Hence as we go along this day let us see what we can do with our minds.
