Think Big

''One should be strong enough like a kite’s thread, be flexible like a kite moving in the air, and should think high like a kite flying up in the sky.''

People have high ambitions but do not have High thinking . There are very few who could do so, for others selfish motive overshadows their their thinking. One needs a strong mental attitude to think beyond one’s own need.

Kind and generous people are often mistaken, one cannot be  blamed for being mistaken  it is quite normal of human to think so.

We are so selfish in thinking about ourselves that we fail to recognise and notice these high thinking people.They do not want to amass anything for them , would like to return to the society like the industrialist Tata .

The concern for the downtrodden society, self less service for the mankind shapes them with such a maturity of mind  to go for doing things beyond their capacity in awe of others.

These high thinkers never think of them high but would rather think of their society high.
I am reminded of a story.

Some sages with their guru are on a mission to cross a river. Therefore, all of them start swimming and suddenly a girl cries for help and the guru immediately dives to bring the girl to the bank. The shishyas see this, and they are perturbed according to them sages are barred from thinking of girls - leave alone touching them, and here the guru himself is going against the set of rules..
After reaching the bank one of the shishyas say to the guru, ‘Swami, you are not permitted to do so but you have carried the girl.’ The sage replies,’ I have left her long time back on the bank but you are still holding her by your thoughts’ this is not the right way. I have rescued and let her go in her way’.

The second is what I received in one of the mails here it goes…
A man saw a poor boy looking at his beautiful expensive new car. He offered the boy a drive.

After the drive the boy said, ‘Your car is so marvelous, it must be expensive, how much does it cost?

‘I do not know, my brother gifted it to me ‘,

‘Wow, so nice of him’.

‘I know what you are thinking; you also would like to have a brother like him’.

‘NO, I want to be a brother like him ‘

Always think and act higher than the people’s expectations.
