[www.keralites.net] WHAT IS INSIDE? BE HONEST

 

'If I were to squeeze the orange as hard as I could, 

what would come out?' I asked him.
He looked at me like I was a little crazy and said, 

 

'Juice, of course.'

'Do you think apple juice could come out of it?'

'No' he laughed.
'What about grapefruit juice?' 'No!'

'What would come out of it?'
'Orange juice, of course.'

'Why?

 Why when you squeeze an orange does orange juice come out?'

He may have been getting a little exasperated 

with me at this point.

'Well, it's an orange and that's what's inside.

"I nodded.

'Let's assume that this orange isn't an orange, but it's you. 

And someone squeezes you,

 puts pressure on you, 

says something you don't like, 

offends you. 

And out of you comes anger, hatred, bitterness, fear. 

Why?
The answer, as our young friend has told us,

 is because that's what's inside.'

It's one of the great lessons of life. 

What comes out when life squeezes you? 

When someone hurts or offends you? If anger, pain and fear 

come out of you, it's because that's what's inside. 

It doesn't matter who does the squeezing: 

your mother, 

your brother, 

your children, 

your boss, 

the government. 

If someone says something about you that you don't like, 

what comes out of you is what's inside. 

And what's inside is up to you, it's your choice.

When someone puts the pressure on you and out of you comes

 anything other than love, it's because that's what you've allowed 

to be inside. Once you take away all those negative things you don't

 want in your life and replace them with love, you'll find

 yourself living a highly functioning life."

 

HAVE YOU BEEN HONEST?
