Reflect Beauty and Love

Originally Published 3/4/1999

 

Dear Cyberfriends,

  Please take a moment to clear your mind, perhaps taking 3 deep luxurious breaths and enjoy the following:

  A water bearer in India had two large pots, each hanging from opposite ends of a pole he carried across his neck. One pot had a crack in it; the other was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water after the long walk from the stream to the master’s house. The cracked pot always arrived only half full.

  Every day for twp years, the water bearer delivered only one and a half pots of water to his master’s house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its imperfection, miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do.

After two year of what it perceived to be a biter failure, it spoke to the water bearer.

“I am ashamed of myself and I want to apologize to you.”

“Why?” asked the bearer. “What are you ashamed of?”

  For these past two years, I have been able to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your master’s house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work and you don’t get full value for your efforts.” The pot said.

  The water bearer felt sorry for the old cracked pot and in his compassion he said, “As we return to the master’s house, I want you to notice the beautiful flowers along the path.”

  Indeed, as they went up the hill, the old cracked pot took notice of the sun warming the beautiful wild flowers on the side of the path and this cheered it some. But at the end of the trail, it still felt bad because it had leaked out half its load and so again the pot apologized to the bearer for its failure.

  The bearer said to the pot, “Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of the path, but not on the other pot’s side? That’s because I have always known about your flaw and I took advantage of it. I planted flower seeds on your side of the path and every day while we walk back from the stream, you’ve watered them. For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate my master’s table. Without you being just the way you are, he would not have had this beauty to grace his home.”

  Each of us has our unique flaws. In Spirit’s great universe, nothing goes to waste. Don’t be afraid of your flaws. Acknowledge them and you too can be the cause of beauty. Know that in our weakness, we find our strength.

  Affirmation for Today: I reflect out beauty and love in all I do, all I say, all I am.


With Blessings of love, light, affluence & bliss.
