Edify your mind to hallmark a Blackboard for blissful livingWhen we think about a blackboard or a chalkboard, some of the common characteristics of it are that it simplifies things of teachers and students. But here I would like you to compare blackboard to our mind and upskill our mind to be one like it. Now, you might be wondering what skill can be compared between our mind and the simple blackboard or chalkboard.
As the board is black, it highlights anything written over it. When we use white chalk, it is visible to all even from the backbenches. We started using colorful chalks to add more detailing and help in an easy understanding of what is to be taught by the teacher. In the same way, when anything good is seen in others, we need to highlight it and let it grow. Whenever some mistake is done, it is easily erased by a duster without leaving a mark on the board. In the same way, when someone does some wrong to us, let our mind erase the fault without making a scar. During some important days, we wet the chalk and use it to draw or write on the board that remains there for the full day but when a wet cloth is used, it is wiped off easily. In the same manner, when at times, some major mistake or fault is done by other to us, let us take some time and try to wipe-off the mark and let no blotch remain in our mind as the more we carry it with us, the more we get destroyed within.
Let us try to train our mind to be like a black or chalkboard that has the feature of highlighting the good in others and quash or expunge the bad for our well-being and ecstatic living. The more we train our minds to waive-off the fault in others, the more we will start loving and enjoying life.
