An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his employer of his plans to leave the house building business and live a more leisurely life with his wife enjoying his extended family. He would miss the paycheck, but he needed to retire. 

The contractor was sorry to see his good worker go and asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favor. The carpenter said yes, but in time it was easy to see that his heart was not in his work. He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used inferior materials. It was an unfortunate way to end his career. 

When the carpenter finished his work and the builder came to inspect the house, the contractor handed the front-door key to the carpenter. “This is your house,” he said, “my gift to you.” 

What a shock! What a shame! If he had only known he was building his own house, he would have done it all so differently. Now he had to live in the home he had built none too well.

Once upon a time there was very intelligent and religious person. For the people of his town he was getting a temple built on his own land. He use to visit the place of construction regularly and observe the people doing their respective jobs. Once he saw that an artist was carving a sculpture of the GOD. Suddenly he saw that at some distance a similar sculpture was lying on the floor. He wondered and asked the artist “Do you need two sculptures of the same GOD?”

The artist replied, “No, I need only one sculpture, but the first one got damaged in its last finish, so I am making the other one.”

The wise man went near to that damaged sculptor and tried to find out what might have wrong with it. After a very long observation he saw a small scratch, almost negligible, near the nose of the sculpture.

He asked the artist, “Where will you keep this sculpture?”

The artist answered, “ On a 20 feet high pillar.”

“No body would be able to make out this scratch from such a height” the wise man said.

The artist looked at the wise man with a smile and said, “I know and my GOD knows that.”


The inner consciousness knows the right thing and always wants to achieve it.
