“As the Old Blind Man sits upon the bench in which he is at everyday a young child in his prime approaches. Uncertain he stands wondering if he should ask. “Speak child, I know you have a question for me.” The Old Man trembles. For he knows what will come next, he is wondering how I keep my life in order.
The child jumps! “How could you see me?!”
“Ah, but is that what you were going to ask?”
Eager to know more answers now the child blurts out, “Why are you sitting here every day and how do you get here?A question I wonder is how do I keep my life in order?”
The old man sits for a moment building up the suspension of silence, “For my entire life the world I could not see yet some how I sit upon this bench far from home. As I will never be able to use my eyes as you, I have learned to use my ears and hands. I have learned to use each of my senses so to work as a complete unit to make up for the eyes in which I do not have.” The Old Man sits and thinks for a moment. Then he say’s,
“When you are not strong in one area of life you make up in others. My feet still work so I shall use them. The world will not decide to stop just because I can not observe it. Like a bat I hear all that goes on. I wake up everyday and remember that my weakness can make for the utmost fortune. For I have mastered the world around me. In what I do not have I surpass in other areas. As you grow old in life you gain wisdom as you learn the unknown.”
Keep My Life In Order
As you continue through life you may be able to openly observe your weak points. When you understand that not all are the same but we may get to the same point in life. There is an objective to gain when you begin to gather information. Self-Reflection into who you are is only the beginning to life. With wisdom gained into the insight of realizing that you can grow if you put forward the effort. There are obstacles each and every way that you go but, how you handle them will determine where you end up. Only you truly know what can help you grow as a person.
Looking inward is a solid stepping stone to move forward towards your leap of faith into a life of knowledge. Being determined to excel will ultimately help you cover up the lacks in which you obtain.
Question For The Day
Are you able to understand the areas in life in which you lack and may never gain? Are you able to triumph over what you do not understand and may never?
No one being on this Earth will have the answer to all. As we encounter another person throughout life we are offered the opportunity to try on another pair of shoes. In what we lack another excels.
The one who has gotten to the end may never explain how it was obtained but rather guide. A path to success and meaning is a one size path for one. Each facet in which we travel is to be called our own. We are who we are and no one else is the same.
