An instructive story on how to react to malice, envy and insults

An old wise samurai lived. He had a group of students and trained them in wisdom and military skills. One day, during the training, a young soldier came, known for his rudeness and negative attitude.

His favorite tactic was provocation: he insulted his opponents and easily lost patience, accepted challenges, but in anger he made many mistakes and of course, always lost the fight.

This is what happened this time as well: the soldier said several insults and began to observe the samurai's reaction. The samurai calmly continued the lecture.

This was repeated several times. When the samurai did not react for the third time, the soldier angrily left the lecture. The other students observed this situation carefully and with interest. After the soldier left, one of them could not stand it and asked:

- Teacher, why did you tolerate his attacks and insults? You should have challenged him to a fight!

The wise samurai replied:

- When someone brings you a gift, and you do not accept it, where will the gift end?

- At the owner - the students answered.

- The same goes for envy, hatred, insults and malice. Until you accept them, they will belong to the person who brought them.

It has been proven that people who are too busy with other people's lives and who insult others for every little thing, do not have their own life! They are ungrateful, dissatisfied and negative, so they want to harm others.

it is a truth known to wise men, if you do not accept the gift it is returned to the owner.

we should be careful to whom we give what we do not want for ourselves, we should not give to others
