 The world is as you see it,

How we perceive people, is how the world becomes.

In Sanskrit, there is a proverb that goes, ‘Yatha Drishti, Tatha Srishti – ‘As you see the world, that is how the world becomes for you.

If you see the world as full of horrible people, in your experience, only such type of things will happen.

If you see the world as full of good people, even in the worst criminal, you will see there is a very nice person hiding deep inside him.

In the Mahabharata the preceptor, Dronacharya, asked the eldest of the Pandavas (Dharmraj) and the Kauravas (Duryodhana), to go around the kingdom and find out how many good persons and bad persons were there.

Dharmraj came back and reported that he could not find a single bad person. He could find some negatives only in himself.

Duryodhana came back and told the Guru that he could not find a single good person. If there was any good man, it was only him, he said.

Dronacharya pondered over these divergent findings and realized that the outlook of each of them determined the nature, of their findings.

Dharmraj, being a good man, found only what is good in everyone.

Duryodhana, with his evil mind, could only see the bad side in everybody.

Everything thus depends on our outlook and not on the nature of the things we observe.

If you look at the world with a good mind everything will appear good.

There is nothing wrong with Srishti (Creation),

Just change your Drishti (Vision)!

If you look for the good, you will only find the good and if you look for the evil in everyone, you will only find the bad.

So, don’t judge people, or label them as bad people or good people.

In this wonderful year ahead, Look for only the good in Everyone and stay blessed forever.
