FOOD FOR THOUGHT

An Elephant Took A Bath In A River And Was Walking On The Road.

When It Neared A Bridge, It Saw A Pig Fully Soaked In Mud Coming From The

Opposite Direction.

The Elephant Quietly Moved To One Side, Allowed The Dirty Pig To Pass And Then Continued Its Journey.

The Unclean Pig Later Spoke To Its Friends In

Arrogance, “See How Big I Am; Even The Elephant

Was Afraid Of Me And Moved To One Side To Let Me Pass”.

On Hearing This, Some Elephants Questioned Their

Friend, The Reason For Its Action. Was It Out Of Fear?

The Elephant Smiled And Replied, “I Could Have Easily Crushed The Pig Under My Leg, But I Was Clean And The Pig Was Very Dirty.

By Crushing It, My Leg Will Become Dirty And I Wanted To Avoid It. Hence, I Moved Aside.”

Lesson:

Great Souls Will Avoid Contact With Negativity

Not Out Of Fear, But Out Of Desire To Keep Away
