Once upon a time in a kingdom, the king suffered pain in his eyes.
Many different doctors visited him but none of them were able to cure the king’s pain.
The King’s right-hand minister suggested: “There is a wise man in the Kingdom who knows everything, let him visit you.”
The king agreed and they brought the wise man to visit the king.
The wise man said: “If you see everything in green, your pain will stop eventually and your eyes will be cured.”
The king ordered every wall of his palace to be painted green. The king’s pain in his eyes was getting better exactly as the wise man promised.
The king ordered everyone to wear green. He asked for all the dishes, table cloths, furniture, curtains; every possible thing in the palace to be changed to green.
The project took a whole year. The palace started to become famous and known as the ‘Green Palace.’
The king’s eyes were completely cured. He felt no pain at all.
The king asked his minister to bring the wise man back to the palace as he wanted to reward him.
When the wise man came to visit, the king said: “Thank you for your perfect prescription. The color green really cured the pain in my eyes, but what an expensive prescription it was. We paid a fortune to change everything to green, but it was worth it.” And laughed.
The wise man replied politely: “I asked you to see everything in green. You just had to use glasses with green glass. You didn’t need to change the world around you, you just had to change your vision.”
-There is no need for us to change the world around us, in fact, it would be impossible. We just need to change the way we look at our environment.
