Teaching Story - Change Your Course
by Life Positive
The captain told him to flash a signal to the vessel, directing it to change course. The vessel signalled back, "No, you change your course." Again the captain instructed the midshipman to command the oncoming vessel to change its course immediately. Again the reply was, "No, you change your course." With one last attempt, the midshipman signalled the vessel saying, "This is the Captain of a U.S. Navy battleship and you are to change your course immediately." The reply was, "No, you change your course. This is a lighthouse."
That story illustrates how we as humans tend to deal with pain and suffering. We always want the circumstances around us to change course, rather than changing ourselves to meet those circumstances. Maybe it's time to change our perspective about the way we look at our problems and take a different course of action by arriving at solutions instead!
