An elephant took a bath in a river & was walking on the road. When it neared a bridge, it saw a pig fully soaked in mud, coming from the opposite direction. The elephant quietly moved to one side, allowed the dirty pig to pass & then continued its onward journey. The unclean pig later spoke to its friends in arrogance, “See how big I am; even the elephant was afraid of me & moved to one side to let me pass”. On hearing this, some elephants questioned their friend, the reason for its action. Was it out of fear? .The elephant smiled & replied, “I could have easily crushed the pig under my leg, but I was clean & the pig was very unclean. By crushing it, my leg would have become dirty & I wanted to avoid it. Hence, I moved aside.”
Realized souls will avoid contact with negativity not out of fear, but out of desire to keep away from impurity though they are strong enough to destroy the impurity. You need not react to every opinion, every comment, or every situation.
Kick the drama & keep going ahead.
Think about it...
