Once upon a time there lived in a Forest, a learned Guru along with his disciples.
One day the Guru began his class by holding a Stone in his hands and keeping it just above the ground.
He held it up for all his Disciples to see & asked...“How much do you think this stone would weigh?”
Disciples: '50g!'.... '100g!'..... '125g' …..
Guru: Is it difficult to lift this stone
Guru: What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?
The Disciples: Nothing….
Guru: Ok what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?
The Disciples: Your arm would begin to ache' said one of the Disciples.
Guru: You're right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?
The Disciples: Your arm could go numb…you might have severe muscle stress & even paralyze it!
Guru: Very good, But during all this, did the weight of the stone change?
The Disciples: No…..
Guru: Then what caused the arm ache & the muscle stress?
The Disciples were puzzled.
Guru: What should I do now to come out of pain?
The Disciples: Put the stone down!
“Exactly!” the Guru smiled and continued…
Life's problems are something like this.
Hold it for a few minutes in your head & they seem OK.
Think of them for a long time & they begin to ache.
Hold it even longer & they begin to paralyze you.
It's important to think of the challenges or problems in your life,
