I did not write the following parable, but I like the lesson it teaches. Photo by The Humane Society of the United States – Flickr: “the Greats” CC 2.0


Who are you?

There is a story they tell of two dogs.

Both dogs, at separate times, walk into the same room. One comes out wagging his tail while the other comes out growling.

A woman watching this goes into the room to see what could possibly make one dog so happy and the other so mad. To her surprise she finds a room filled with mirrors.

The happy dog found a thousand happy dogs looking back at him while the angry dog saw only angry dogs growling back at him.

What you see in the world around you is a reflection of who you are.
