An Elephant took a bath in a river and 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, allow the dirty pig to pass and then continued its onward journey.
The unclean pig spokes to its friends in arrogance,” see how big I am; even the elephant was afraid of me and moved to one side to let me pass”. On hearing this, some elephant questioned their friends, the reason for its action. Was it out of fear?? The elephant smile and replied,” I could have easily crushed the pig under my leg but I was clean and the pig was very dirty and I wanted to avoid it. Hence, I moved aside.”
This Story Reveals: 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.
