It Is In Your Hand

It Is In Your Hands

A young man caught a small bird, and held it behind his back. He then asked, “

“Master, is the bird I hold in my hands alive or dead.”

The boy thought this was a grand opportunity to play a trick on the old man.

If the master answered “dead”, it would be let loose into the air.

If the master answered “alive”, he would simply wring its neck.

The master spoke,

“The answer is in your hands”.


We all have the power within our own hands; this story is just a simple demonstration to prove that point.

At any given moment we can be confronted with people’s opinions, others anger, frustrations or temptations within our life, it is completely in our own hands if we surrender our power, we can stay positive and cheerful in the midst of chaos it is our choice, today I choose a different way.

Let such tales help us reflect on our inner strength to tide over COVID-19.
