Insight - "Shemushi": [32] Power Of Independent Decision

Published: 26.02.2009

Power Of Independent Decision

Taking suggestions from anyone is not bad or wrong. At the same time one should be able to exercise independent decisions. This is important so that ones thinking power increases and one can make and take rational decisions. Without this attitude man is always dependent.

Once upon a time there was a man with very poor vision. He was never able to do anything correctly because he wasn't able to see things well. One day he really got fed up with his problem and went to the eye doctor to get an operation.

After the operation, the doctor asked the man to pay him money.

The man simply replied "no" and said he would go back home and ask if he were seeing correctly, only then would he pay the money.

The doctor asked, " What do you think you would do in a situation like this".

The man replied that he wouldn't know because his family members or friends always make his decisions for him.

It is rightly said - A person who cannot develop his mind, no religious fact can be benefited from without understanding. Like a sightless person does not need a mirror.
