“The Kingdom of Heaven is like a landowner who went out at dawn to hire labourers for his vineyard”.(Mathew 20:1)

This one parable has had a great influence in my thinking from early childhood.
I have always believed in “KARMA” and what we assume receiving in this lifetime is the resultant of all our past lives & deeds. Therefore I need to be satisfied with the present at all times.This thought has kept me in a State of happiness at all times. Let me not look over the fence and say ” Oh!! He’s got a better wife than mine” or “I wish I had his Car”. We all wake up and say”Oh! I am so Unlucky. The unlucky is nothing more than a frame of reference for the lucky that we assume. Unfortunately we never realize we too are lucky, until it’s too late. For instance, yesterday we were better off than today. But it took today for us to realise it. We are never happy with what we have. We want what we had or what others have. The grass is always greener on the other side, and we really do not know what we have, until it’s gone.

Why do we always feel the grass is greener on the other side?
What is it that keeps us from being content with what we have, where we are, what we are doing, who we are? We seem to be forever craning our necks to see what lies beyond our grasp; missing what may be right in front of us, and convincing ourselves we could be happy, if only we could have what we covet. Gratitude fosters contentment. Embracing acceptance, and choosing our perspective allows us to enjoy the moment before us. When we are in the moment, we are not looking over the fence, because we are busy living the moment with what is right in front of us. Choose Contentment over anxiety, and change our perspective from feeling stuck to being willing to use the time to our benefit instead of wailing on self pity and anger. We would be there either way. What a relief to remember we have a choice. The next time we find ourself peeking over the fence, learn to accept with gratitude. We might find the most beautiful green grass beneath our feet. Green ….Greener…..Greenest……………… grass beneath our feet.”

  1. Nice post.
    It took me a while to realize – but – I’m happy with the grass in my yard.

    This is beautiful! Most of us need to remember this most of the time. But if we’re living in the moment, there would be no need! 🙂
