'My friends aren't talking to me', 'I am all alone', 'He always does like that!' We often use such phrases in our daily lives for our friends, isn't it? This makes our 'friends' who are like 'colours' get away from us. Have you ever thought why? Let's find out!
Carefully pour some milk in the dish or a bowl.
Add drops of the different food coloring on the same spot in the center of the milk.
Dip a cotton swab in the dishwashing liquid.
Gently touch the center of the food coloring. Push the cotton swab down in the same spot all the way to the bottom of the plate and hold it.
Did you see the food coloring move away from the soap-covered cotton swab when you touched it to the milk. Dish washing Liquid soap acts as a "degreaser" so the molecules in it attack the fat in the milk, causing motion which moves the colours away.
Milk = our surroundings (school or neighborhood)
Colours = Our friends
Cotton bud = You
Dish washing Liquid = Habit of seeing faults in others
We have friends at school & in our locality. By keeping opinions for them, we often see their faults. This makes our 'friends' who are like 'colours' get away from us. If we see their faults, point out mistakes, be rude or hurtful, then they will distance (bhed) themselves from us. It is, therefore, important that we turn that around, see their positive qualities and bring oneness (abhed). We should do pratikraman from within if we hurt them.
