Let us change our vision!

There was a millionaire who was bothered by severe eye pain. He consulted quite a number of physicians for his problem but could not be cured. finally  he consulted a  monk who was considered an  expert  in treating  such patients. The monk  understood his  problem  and advised him that for a few days he should concentrate only on green colours. 

The millionaire got together a group  of  painters  and purchased barrels of green color and directed that every object his eye was likely   to   fall be painted in green colour just as the monk  had directed.

When the   monk  came  to  visit  him  after  few  days,  the  millionaire's  servants ran with buckets of green paints to pour on him as he was wearing a red dress. Seeing this the monk laughed and said "If only you had purchased a pair of green spectacles, costing just  a  few rupees, you could have saved these walls and trees and pots and all other articles thereby saving a large fortune. You cannot paint the  world green." 

Let us change our vision and the world will appear accordingly. It is  foolish to change the world, let us change ourselves first.
