A Mulla Nasrudin Story

Do you carry resentments, bitterness, acrimony in your heart? 
If you do, then do read this Mulla Nasrudin Story.

Mulla Nasrudin’s boss was a tyrant who used to bully and harass the docile Mulla Nasrudin. He had made made Mulla Nasrudin's life miserable.

One day the boss suddenly died of a heart attack.

Just before his funeral all members of his staff went to pay their last respects to the departed soul.

Suddenly Nasrudin picked up a big stone and threw the stone at the dead body of his boss.

Everyone was shocked and surprised at Nasrudin’s strange behaviour, but before anyone could say anything Nasrudin calmly explained, “All these days I was carrying a stone in my heart. Today I have cast it out.”

The moral of the story, Dear Reader, is that there is no point carrying stones” of bitterness, ill-will, rancour, resentments and acrimony in your heart. 

Remember, you are bearing the burden of these stones”  you carry within you and this causes you pain. 

Whatever is causing you bitterness inside, just get it off your chest right now, once and for all.  

Just throw out all these stones” right now and forget about them and see how light and joyful you feel.
