As we think so we become

In a village there lived a person Rama who was suffering from indigestion. He took several medicines to treat this ailment, but being chronic he couldn’t get cured. During one festive occasion a saint had come to Rama’s village to give a discourse. He was a highly learned man. Rama met the saint after his discourse and told him about his ailment. The saint gave him a simple cure; he asked him to chew some pieces of rock salt daily. On doing so for some time, Rama’s condition improved.

Rama was a generous man and used to feed the poor and little children sweets during the festivals.  On one such occasion he went to the market to buy some sweets as was his usual practice. When he began tasting the sweets to be purchased; he found them bitter. He thought perhaps the quality of sweet was not good at that particular shop. He went to many other sweet shops to check. Everywhere he found the sweets to be bitter. This was on account of his habit of sucking the salt daily. One shopkeeper who know his habit of eating the rock salt suggested to him to wash his mouth before eating the sweet. Rama listened to the shopkeeper’s suggestion and after doing so he tasted the sweet and the sweetmeat was sweet indeed.


Similarly while succumbing to our bad habits, we do not gain the sweet and sanctifying fragrance from the sacred company of the divine personalities that we come across. We can get benefit from the good company only after cleansing our minds. Thoughts are very powerful. As we think so we become and attract those kind of things to us. So let us think positive and good. Let us eliminate negativity and attract goodness, happiness and peace of mind for ourselves.
