As a carpenter went home after shutting down his workshop, a black poisonous cobra entered his workshop.
The cobra was hungry and hoped to find its supper lurking somewhere within. It slithered from one end to another and finally bumped into an axe and got very slightly injured.
In anger and revenge, the snake bit the axe with full force. What could a bite do to a metallic axe? Instead the cobra ‘s mouth started bleeding.
Out of fury and arrogance, the cobra tried it’s best to strangle and kill the object that was causing it pain by wrapping itself around the axe.
The next day when the carpenter opened the workshop, he found a dead cobra wrapped around the axe blades. The cobra didn’t die because of someone else’s fault but faced these consequences merely because of it’s own anger and wrath.
Sometimes when angry, we try to cause harm to others but as the time passes by, we realise that we have caused more harm to ourselves.
For a happy life, it’s best we should ignore and overlook things, people, incidents, affairs and matters.
It is not necessary that we show a reaction to everything. Step back and ask yourself if the matter is really worth responding to .
People who show no inclination to change, are best handled with prayer.
Good day my friends.
