Have you ever parked your vehicle badly and bumped into the adjacent car or crashed it’s rear view mirror and moved on silently as if it wasn’t you? How many times have you aimed the dustbin and threw the chocolate wrap just right next to it and walked away nonchalantly? Or…Do you remember the last time you broke your neighbor’s valuable artifact/object and kept it right there as if you never even touched it? Or… the time when you tore the page of your friend’s/library book and kept it back on the rack quietly?
The word sincerity comes into picture only when we are surrounded by an audience, boss or the person concerned. Why should we be so shallow?
So here’s is this week’s story on Sincerity :
Be Sincere To Your Own Conscience
On a fine day, a renowned sculptor was busy working on his last piece for the city’s grand tower. A good friend of the sculptor stopped by his workplace to catch up with him and support him. That final piece was the sculptor’s mater piece and it was to be kept on top of the tower at a height of about 100 feet above the ground level. The friend noticed that the sculptor was making an exact replica of another piece which he had carved earlier that day.
Upon seeing that, the friend became curious and asked him “Why are you making the same piece all over again?“
The sculptor said “The edge of the sculpture’s ear is broken..Can you see that?“
For which his friend said “Oh yeah, that’s a tiny piece and it is going to be placed above 100 feet! Who’s going to know that a few millimeters is off the ear?!“
Upon hearing his friend’s simple yet logical statement, the sculptor smiled, nodded and said “Well, I will know!“.
Yes, that’s exactly what we are talking about.
Do something right because you want to. Not because somebody is watching you. Be sincere at work, home, and in every little deed that you do, not because you need to earn a good name in front of people, but because you want to have a guilt-free conscience.
