Clean Windows

E-mail Print PDF

 A young couple moves into a new neighbourhood. The next morning while they are eating breakfast the young woman sees her neighbour hang the wash outside.

" The laundry is not very clean",  she said, "She doesn't know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap."
Her husband looked out at the washing  but remained silent.
Every time her neighbour would hang her wash to dry, the young woman would make the same comment.
About two weeks  later the young woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband : "Look! She has finally learned to wash correctly!
I wonder who taught her this."
The husband said: "I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows."

Now that's an interesting story .
You're not going to believe it but something similar happened to me...

For many years I used to look at the college and the world and people I knew and worked with and the work that I was doing  and practically all of life itself through a somewhat uncleaned window.
OK, OK, so it was a stained glass window  and looked pretty like that but still it was not all that clean and what I saw through it was kind of blurred and not so beautiful.....
Then you know what I did?
Since I did not have anyone else to do it for me.... I had to do it myself so I did it :

I opened the window!!     
And suddenly a lot of things looked differently beautiful and natural and clear.
Just like it was  meant to be and actually was.... !
I do not easily jump to first-sight and first-impression conclusions now.
I check on my windows  first - clean or dirty, open or closed, - and then I relate to what I see.
Sometimes, though, I mess up and judge wrongly. If I do that then I generally correct myself and apologise for it.  Most people can handle and appreciate  well meant and sincere apologies .
And carrying on after that is a whole lot easier...
There is always so much to learn from windows and water bottles and  kites and birds and flowers and all the rest...
In the end much of the world around us is as we see it through windows or glasses
or experiences we have had earlier or attitudes we have developed over the years...
Cleaning up our windows or opening up our lives does more good to us than it does to what is out there beyond...
Doing it right away is a good time to be doing it.... don't you think ?
More happy and cleaned-clear windows to you there! And more beautiful sights that you open yourself to seeing and experiencing!
