There are days I have to act blind on certain things that happen in my life. We have been conditioned in a way that we always react to situations even if we have the ability to ignore and forgive the person.
Until I read this story; it validated my thoughts on forgiveness.
This is the story;
A man married a beautiful girl. He loved her very much.
One day she developed a skin disease. Slowly she started to lose her beauty. It so happened that one day her husband left for a tour.
While returning he met with an accident and lost his eyesight. However their married life continued as usual. But as days passed she lost her beauty gradually.
Blind husband did not know this and there was not any difference in their married life.
He continued to love her and she also loved him very much. One day she died. Her death brought him great sorrow.
He finished all her last rites and wanted to leave that town. A man from behind called and said, now how will you be able to walk all alone? All these days your wife used to help you. He replied, I am not blind.
I was acting, because if she knew l could see her ugliness it would have pained her more than her disease. So I pretended to be blind.
She was a very good wife. I only wanted to keep her happy.
Moral: Some times it is good for us to act blind and ignore one another’s short comings, in order to be happy. No matter how many times the teeth bite the tongue, they still stay together in one mouth. That’s the spirit of FORGIVENESS.
May God grant us all the spirit of forgiveness, unity and togetherness.
It is well.
