The Villager and the Happy Man
 

Being good and being kind do not necessarily point to weakness. When you are good, you can also be strong. People sense your inner strength, and therefore do not impose on you. When you are strong and calm inside, you help people, because you can, and you want to. You then act from strength and not from weakness. Goodness can also go with power and strength, it is not a sign of weakness, as some people erroneously think.”ll

The Villager and the Happy Man
2
In a small village in the valley, lived a man who was always
happy, kind, and well disposed to everyone he met. He always
smiled, and had a kind and encouraging word to say whenever
necessary. Everyone, who met him left feeling better, happier
and elated. People knew they could count on him, and regarded
him as a great friend.
One of the village dwellers was curious to know what his secret
was, and how he could always be so kind and helpful. He
wondered, how is it, that he held ,no grudge toward anyone,
and why he was always happy.
Once, upon meeting him in the street he asked him: “Most
people are selfish and unsatisfied. They do not smile as often
as you do; neither are they as helpful or kind as you are. How
do you explain it?”
“When you make peace with yourself, you can be in peace with
the rest of the world. If you can recognize the spirit in yourself,
you can recognize the spirit in everyone, and then you find it
natural to be kind and well disposed to all. If your thoughts are
under your control, you become strong and firm. The
personality is like a robot programmed to do certain tasks.
Your habits and thoughts are the tools and programs that
control your personality. Become free from being programmed,
and then the inner good and happiness that reside within you
will be revealed.”
“But a lot of work is necessary. Good habits have to be
developed. The ability to concentrate and to control the
thoughts has to be strengthened. The work is difficult and
endless. There are many walls that need to be climbed. It is
not an easy task.” Lamented the villager.
“Do not think about the difficulties, otherwise this is what you
will see and experience. Just quieten your feelings and
3
thoughts, and try to stay in this peace. Just try to be calm, and
do not let yourself be carried away by your thoughts.”
“Is that all?” Asked the villager.
“Try to watch your thoughts and see how they come and go.
Stay in the quietness that arises. The moments of peace will be
brief at first, but in time they will get longer. This peace is also
strength, power, kindness, and love. You will then realize that
you are one with the Universal Power, and this will cause you
to act from a different dimension, not from the selfish, small,
limited ego.”
“I will try to remember your words,” said the villager and
continued, “there is another thing that I am curious about. You
do not seem to be influenced by the environment. You have a
kind word to everyone, and are helpful. However, people treat
you well, and do not exploit your goodness.”
“Being good and being kind do not necessarily point to
weakness. When you are good, you can also be strong. People
sense your inner strength, and therefore do not impose on you.
When you are strong and calm inside, you help people, because
you can, and you want to. You then act from strength and not
from weakness. Goodness can also go with power and
strength, it is not a sign of weakness, as some people
erroneously think.”
“Thank you very much for your advice and explanation”, said
the villager, and went away happy and satisfied.
