There was a very wealthy man who was bothered by severe eye pain.
He consulted many ophthalmologists and was being treated by several them.
He did not stop consulting a galaxy of medical experts, he consumed heavy loads of drugs and underwent hundreds of injections.
But the ache persisted with more vigour than before.
At last, a monk who was supposed to be an expert in treating such patients was called for by the suffering man.
The monk understood his problem and said that for sometime he should concentrate only on green colour and not to let his eyes fall on any other colour.
It was a strange prescription, but as he was desperate, he decided to try it.
The millionaire got together a group of painters and purchased barrels of green paint and directed them to paint every object his eye was likely to fall on in green colour.
When the monk came to visit him after few days, the millionaire’s servants ran with buckets of green paint and poured it on the monk as well as he was wearing a red dress.
They were trying their best to prevent the master from seeing from any colour other than green.
Looking at all the chaos monk laughed and said
“My dear, I had advised you to see only green colour not other, you could have purchased a pair of green spectacles worth just a few dollars, to follow my advice properly.”
“Then you could have saved these walls, trees, pots and all the other articles, also you could have easily avoided these financial losses too. It is not possible to paint the world green.”
Let us change our vision and the world will appear accordingly. It is foolish trying to shape the world, let us try shape our minds first.
