I Won The Race....No One Cared A Damn - Spirituality Information
Ants move in groups. Ants never get tired. They are always on the move. I have never seen an ant take rest. Is the ant really making any progress? God alone knows perhaps it could be moving in the wrong direction who knows. Many of my friends are successful,wealthy and happy. They have made significant progress in their respective fields. They are always on the move. They are miles ahead of other people. Have they really made any progress? God alone knows perhaps they could be moving in the wrong direction who knows. Ordinary people applaud extraordinary or great beings. That does not mean that the great people are making progress. How do we know? How can you be sure that action and status signify growth? Who told you that forward movements always signify progress? Does comparison really matter when it comes down to the grind? . Your measurement of progress and growth could be totally wrong because the tool you use to measure growth is the same tool which helped you travel that distance.
It is equal to correcting your own papers during examinations. The results will always be biased when a human mind evaluates its own mind or any other mind superior or inferior to it. Human mind cannot judge itself. You need a superior tool,not a superior human being to judge your mind. Lets say for example that you were to monitor the evolution of an ant. Can you as a human being justify the progress of any ant. Can you pick up an ant and say that it has made terrific growth in its life span? What would be the criteria you would use for measuring the ant's growth? Would that criteria match the ant's mind? Think about it my dear friend. By all means your criteria for growth would not be in sink with the ant's mind.
The way you visualise the ants is the way God visualises you perhaps. He might have a different criteria for progress and growth than what you thought. You might well be moving in the wrong direction. Do not think that by walking further down the road you have made any progress.
You have only covered some distance. Action and movement might not signify growth. Do not be too much overawed by those people who are greater than you. They too are travelling in the same road. They might be miles ahead of you, but who is there to justify whether that it is the right road?.Winners and losers doesnt matter when the race is disqualified by the referee. The tiny ant pinched me on my foot.
