A teacher shows three toys to a student and asks the student to find out the differences. All the three toys seemed to be identical in their shape, size and material. After keen observation, the student observes holes in the toys.
1st toy it has holes in the ears.
2nd toy has holes in the ear and mouth.
3rd toy has only one hole in one ear.
Then with the help of a needle the student puts the needle in the ear hole of 1st toy. The needle comes out from the other ear. In the 2nd toy, when the needle was put in ear the needle came out of mouth. And in the 3rd toy, when the needle was put in, the needle did not come out.
First toy represent those people around you who gives an impression that they are listening to you, all your things and care for you. But they just pretend to do so. After listening, as the needle comes out from the next ear, the things you said to them by counting on them are gone. So be careful while you are speaking to this type of people around you, who does not care for you.
Second toy represent those people who listens to you all your things and gives an impression that they care for you. But as in the toy, the needle comes out from mouth. These people will use your things and the words you tell them against you by telling it to others and bringing out the confidential issues for their own purpose.
Third toy, the needle does not come out from it. These kinds of people will keep the trust you have in them. They are the ones who you can count on.

Once, when some adults were discussing and wondering why dogs have shorter lives than people, a six-year old boy, who had been listening quietly, piped up, “I know why.” Startled, they all turned to him.
He said,‘ People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life — like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?” The young boy continued,‘ Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as long.” They had never heard a more compelling explanation and it had made a lasting impression on them.
People take years to learn to: Live simply. Love generously, care deeply and speak kindly.

The mind likes to play, give it a toy to think about ~ Art~
In life realize that there is a purpose for every person you meet. Some are there to test you, some will use you, some will teach you, and some will bring out the best in you.
Everyone is composed of 4 people, the person people think you are, the person your family and friends see you as, the person that you think you are and then there is the real you.
Life is a battle, the wrestling with-in the mind, grappling with and dealing with others and the fight to survive. Art~
may your day be filled with joy, love and purpose
