Message for the Day…”Cultivate the broad idea ‘everyone is mine’, then, love, patience and forbearance will grow abundantly.”

Imagine your son and servant is at home. If your son is pilfering some things or developing bad habits, you will try and control him by correcting, scolding, and persuading him to return to good ways but will never take him and hand him over to the police – will you? On the other hand, if your servant steals a small spoon, at once, you will consider handing him over to the police, isn’t it? What is the inner significance from this situation? The reason for the difference in behavior is the narrow idea ‘this boy is my son’. Because the servant does not belong to you, there is no consideration for forbearance and patience! Cultivate the broad idea ‘everyone is mine’, then, love, patience and forbearance will grow abundantly.
