Many years ago,the late DrWayne w. Dyer took an orange on stage during a lecture and he asked this question: “if I were to squeeze this orange as hard as I could, what would come put?” Some voices from the crowd shouted “juice of course”.
“Do you think apple juice could come out of it?”, No!.. the crowd replied. “What about grapefruit juice?”,”No”, was the answer again. “What would come out of it?” And the general chorus was “Orange juice, of course”. He asked, “When you squeeze an orange, why does orange juice come out?” The crowd was confused with that question and mumbled a few answer but Dr Dyer raised the orange and made this statement: “ Orange juice comes out because it’s an orange and that’s what’s inside”. He continued: “lets assume that this orange isn’t an orange, but it’s you and someone squeezes you, puts pressure on you, says something you don’t like, offends you, and out of you comes anger, hatred, bitterness, fear, e.t.c. Why? The answer, as indicated by the doc. is because that’s what’s inside. It’s one of the great lessons of life.
Ask yourself, what comes out of me when life squeezes me?, when someone hurts or offends you. If anger,pain and fear comes out of you, its because thats whats inside. It doesn’t matter who does the squeezing-your parents, your spouse, your brother/sister, your children, the government..e.t.c.
If someone says or does something to you that you don’t like, what comes out of you is whats inside you. And what’s inside is up to you, it’s your choice!!.
I just decided to share this with you.
