Tale of that dirty laundry

A young couple moved into a new neighborhood. The next morning, while they were having breakfast, the young woman saw her neighbor hang the washed laundry outside.

“That laundry is not very clean”, she said, “she doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.”

Her husband looked on, but remained silent. Every time her neighbor would hang her washed laundry to dry, the young woman would make the same comments.

About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband:

“Look! She has learnt how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this.”

The husband said: “I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows!”

And so it is with life. What we see when we are watching others, depends on the purity of the window through which we look. Before we give any criticism, it might be a good idea to check our state of mind and ask ourselves if we are ready to see the good rather than to be looking for something in the person we are about to judge.

    Really nice article..but it takes a lot of effort to clean the window of our life. The pathetic side is that we never realises that the fault is at our ends.

      Yes Tanvi, that introspection is never thought to be necessary. Even if its done, its most of the time half hearted. We all are all the time so good in passing the buck and pointing fingers.

      Good to know you liked. Thankx..
