Change Our Vision

There was a billionaire who was bothered by severe eye pain. He consulted so many physicians and was getting his treatment done. He did not stop consulting galaxy of medical experts; he consumed heavy loads of drugs and underwent hundreds of injections. 

But the ache persisted with great vigour than before. At last a medicine man who has supposed to be an expert in treating such patients was called for by the billionaire. The medicine man understood his problem and said that for sometime he should concentrate only on green colours and not to fall his eyes on any other colours.

The billionaire got together a group of painters and purchased barrels of green color and directed that every object his eye was likely to fall to be painted in green colour just as the medicine man had directed. 

When the medicine man came to visit him after few days, the billionaire's servants ran with buckets of green paints and poured on him since he was in red dress, lest their master not see any other colour and his eye ache would come back. 

The medicine man laughed said "If only you had purchased a pair of green spectacles, worth just a few dollars, you could have saved these walls and trees and pots and all other articles and also could have saved a large share of his fortuneYou cannot paint the world green.

Let us change our vision and the world will appear accordingly. It is foolish to shape the world, let us shape ourselves first.
