A lovely story ♡ The Change Within
Few disciples went to the Master and told the Master that they are all going for a pilgrimage trip. The Master asked them the purpose of this trip and the disciples said it is for “ Inner Purification”.
The Master immediately took out a Karela (Bitter gourd) and handed over this to them. The disciples asked the Master what is that they are supposed to do with the Karela. The Master said carry this Karela with you, where ever you go and do Pooja, and keep this Karela also in the pooja. The disciples took the Karela with them and where ever they went kept the Karela in the pooja and brought it back.
After returning back from the trip, they met the Master and offered back the Karela to the Master. The master asked them to cook that Karela and serve the same to Him. They cooked the Karela and served the food to the Master. Master tasted the food and the karela and said it is still bitter. You took this to every temple and came back and yet it is still bitter. Disciples said it is the nature of the bitter gourd. The Master smiled and the disciples understood the meaning.
The significance of this story to all of us is that basically if we have to change, our nature our inner belief has to change. Simply going here and there, doing this or that, is not going to help. It is important for the container to be cleaned from the inside. Outside everything can be adjusted or created. The inner nature of the belief system has to change.
With this inner shift your belief and thus your perception to life shall change bringing in the true transformation - Inner and Outer. And with this inner change you shall only see and create opportunities even through biggest of the seeming obstacles.
