Sharpen Your Mind Motivational Story

There was one woodcutter. he used to cut wood daily slogging it out in the hot Sun, sweating. 

the same company employed another woodcutter as well. the second woodcutter used to cut more than the first. 

As a result of that, after one year the company increased his salary. 

the first woodcutter complained. I have been working so long in this organization, and you have increased his salary more than mine?

 They said, “look, we are production oriented. He is cutting double the trees that you are cutting, you also increase your performance will increase your salary more than his.” 

So he tried harder and harder. 

“But he was not able to increase his production.” 

So he went to them and said, “how does he cut so many trees?” 

They said, “why don’t you ask him?” 

He went and asked the second lumberjack, “How do you do it?” 

That lumberjack said, “every time I cut a tree I take a five-minute break in which I sharpen my saw. Do you sharpen your saw?” 

The other one (first one) said, “no, I just keep hitting and hitting and hitting.” 

Second one said, “That is the mistake.” “You need to sharpen your saw.”

 Similarly, you are working in the world. You’re running from morning till night.

 From crisis management, to problem, to difficulty, to resolution of conflict at home and the office, among the relatives with the people in India, over the phone and via Skype. But all these conflict resolutions etc. 

that you keep doing requires your own elevation of consciousness. The more sublime consciousness you bring to bear on your task, your work, your issues the more efficient you will be. So do you take time to sharpen your saw? 

you have heard in the past the example of milk and water. if you take milk and pour it in water, it will mix in the water. The milk does not have the strength to remain, to maintain its undiluted entity, when it is in association with water. 

Now you do something to the milk, keep it separate from the water and in isolation, you transform it into yogurt. 

Now turn the yogurt and extract butter. This button is now immiscible. 

It will sit on the water and float. It will challenge the water, Mr. water, you can do nothing to me now. as long as I was milk, you would dilute my concentration. People would throw me away.

you can do nothing to me because separate from you I transformed myself into butter.

How did that milk become butter? 

By staying separate from the water. like the milk is our mind. Like the water is the world. 

when you live in the world, the mind becomes diluted by it. and if you wish to make it invisible, for some time you keep the world away.
