#Change / #Reaction

*As a carpenter went home after shutting down his workshop, a black poisonous cobra entered his workshop.*

_The cobra was hungry and hoped to find its supper lurking somewhere within. It slithered from one end to another and accidentally bumped into a double-edged metal axe and got very slightly injured._

*In anger and seeking revenge, the snake bit the axe with full force. What could a bite do to a metallic axe? Instead the cobra's mouth started bleeding.*

_Out of fury and arrogance, the cobra tried its best to strangle and kill the object that was causing it pain by wrapping itself very tightly around the blades._

*The next day when the carpenter opened the workshop, he found a seriously cut, dead cobra wrapped around the axe blades.*

_The cobra died not because of someone else's fault but faced these consequences merely because of its own anger and wrath._

*Sometimes when angry, we try to cause harm to others but as time passes by, we realise that we have caused more harm to ourselves.*

_For a happy life, it's best we should learn to ignore and overlook some things, people, incidents, affairs and matters._

*It is not necessary that we show a reaction to everything. Step back and ask yourself if the matter is really worth responding or reacting to.*

_People that show no inclination to change, are best handled with silence and prayer._

THIS is a good story and could help us take some fantastic decisions.
