The Window Through Which We Look

Windows through which we look


Value- Right conduct

Sub value- Non judgemental


A young couple had just  moved into a new neighbourhood. The next morning whilst  having breakfast, the young woman noticed her neighbour hanging the wash  outside. ‘Our neighbor’s laundry is not clean after the wash.Either she doesn’t know how to do her washing or perhaps she needs better laundry soap” remarked the young woman snidely.

Her husband looked on but remained silent. Every time their neighbor would hang the  washed clothes on the line to dry, the young woman always made the same disparaging remarks.

A month later,the young woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and pointed it out  to her husband and said, ‘Look she has finally learned how to wash. I wonder who taught her this’.

The husband nonchalantly  said, “I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows”.

And so it is with life. What we see when watching others depends on the purity of the window through which we look.

1. Never be judgemental about others.

2. One views the world with the glasses one wears. One’s thoughts are reflected on one’s comments.

3. Let us look into ourselves before judging or commenting on others
