A young couple moved into a new neighborhood.
The next morning, while they were having their breakfast, the young woman watches her neighbour hang the washed laundry outside.
“That laundry is not very clean”, she said, “She doesn’t know how to wash properly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.”
Her husband looked on, but remained silent.
Every time her neighbour would hang her washed clothes to dry, the young woman would make the same comments.
About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband:
“Look! She has learnt how to wash correctly.
I wonder who taught her this.”
Her husband said: “I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows!”
And so it is with life:
What we see when we are watching others, depends on the purity of the window through which we look.
Our life is a creation of our own mind.
So let us remember this story of ‘Dirty Laundry’ and clean our windows before commenting or concluding on others.
