Efforts & Coincidences!
Mulla Nasruddin was building a house, so he appointed a well known architect for this purpose. However, the architect was having a difficult time with Mulla.
“...Nasruddin, please can you give me some clarity, some idea," pleaded the architect, "regarding the type of house you want to build?"
"Well," replied the Mulla hesitantly, "all I know and want to insist is that, the type and design of the house must go with an antique doorknob my wife has bought the other day."
Moral of the Story ....
Mulla has only an antique doorknob and all he knows is that the house should be constructed & should go well with that doorknob!!
Friends, that's how most of us are living our lives. When a small effort of ours has succeeded in life, we catch hold of that antique doorknob and accordingly we try to build the whole house of our life. Thus we create trouble for ourselves.
Many a times the antique doorknob may not even have happened due to our own efforts. Things go on happening in our lives of their own accord; they don't generally happen only due to our efforts. Sometimes it is just a coincidence that they happen.
Friends, we all must realize that, all that is beautiful, true and good in our lives, has simply descended on us in the form of Grace....in spite of our efforts!!
Have a Meaningful Day Friends!
