A Story Of Croaking Frogs.

by Seshadri_Sreenivasan


At daytime, your problematic thoughts are suppressed by the mind as it is active in your daily chores, and hence not aware of the problematic thoughts.

At night time your problematic thought flows as the mind is not covered by any activity and the problematic/disturbing thought flows are fully manifesting. During these nights, you will realize that the nights are long.

Practising meditation is one way to control these problematic thought flows at night time and have a happy and peaceful mind free of problems during night or day.

I wish you well and hope your long night ends and you find the happiness and Inner Peace which we all have inside us. Learn how to manifest it which is good for oneself and to all the living beings around you.

That takes me to a thought-provoking story that I received on my social media account some time ago.
 
An old farmer came into town and asked the owner of a restaurant if he could give him a million frogs. The restaurant owner was shocked and asked the man where he could get so many frogs!

The farmer replied, 'There is a pond near my house that is full of frogs - millions of them. They all croak all night long and they are about to make me crazy!'

So the restaurant owner and the farmer made an agreement that the farmer would deliver frogs to the restaurant, five hundred at a time for the next several weeks.

The first week, the farmer returned to the restaurant looking rather sheepish, with two scrawny little frogs.

The restaurant owner said, 'Well... where are all the frogs?' The farmer said, 'I was mistaken. There were only these two frogs in the pond. But they sure were making a lot of noise!


So, next time you hear somebody criticizing or making fun of you, remember, it's probably just a couple of noisy frogs. Also, remember that problems always seem bigger in the dark.

Have you ever lay in your bed at night worrying about things that seem almost overwhelming like a million frogs croaking? Chances are pretty good that when the morning comes, and you take a closer look, you'll wonder what all the fuss was about.
