Nudge the Balance

 A 91-year-old woman died after living a very long dignified
 life. When she met The Creator, she asked Him something that had
 really bothered her for a very long time. "If Man was created
 in The Creators image, and if all men are created equal, why do
 people treat each other so badly?"

The Creator replied that each person who enters our life has a
 unique lesson to teach us. It is only through these lessons
 that we learn about life, people and our relationships with
 The Creator.
This confused the woman, so The Creator began to explain:

 "When someone lies to you, it teaches you that things are
 not always what they seem. The truth is often far beneath the
 surface. Look beyond the masks people wear if you want to
 know what is in their hearts. Remove your own masks to let
 people know who you really are.

 When someone steals from you it teaches you that nothing is
 forever. Always appreciate what you have. You never know
 when you might lose it. Never take your friends or family for
 granted, because today and sometimes only this very
 moment is the only guarantee you may have.

 When someone inflicts injury upon you, it teaches you that
 the human state is a very fragile one. Protect and take care
 of your body as best as you can, it's the one thing that you
 are sure to have forever.

 When someone mocks you, it teaches you that no two people
 are alike. When you encounter people who are different from
 you, do not judge them by how they look or act, instead base
 it on the contents of what is in their hearts.

 When someone breaks your heart, it teaches you that loving
 someone does not always mean that the person will love you
 back. But don't turn your back on love, because when you find
 the right person, the joy that one person brings you will make
 up for all of your past hurts -- Times a thousand fold.

 When someone holds a grudge against you, it teaches you
 that everyone makes mistakes. When you are wronged, the
 most virtuous thing you can do is forgive the offender without
 pretense. Forgiving those who have hurt us is often the most
 difficult and painful of life's experiences, but it is also the
 most courageous thing a person can do.

 When a loved one is unfaithful to you, it teaches you that
 resisting temptation is Man's greatest challenge. Be vigilant
 in your resistance against all temptations. By doing so, you
 will be rewarded with an enduring sense of satisfaction far
 greater than the temporary pleasure by which you were tempted.

 When someone cheats you, it teaches you that greed is the
 root of all evil.  Aspire to make your dreams come true, no
 matter how lofty they may be. Do not feel guilty about your success,
 never let an obsession with achieving your goals
 lead you to engage in malevolent activities.

 When someone ridicules you, it teaches you that nobody is
 perfect. Accept people for their merits and be tolerant of
 their flaws. Do not ever reject someone for imperfections
 over which they have no control."

 Upon hearing The Creator wisdom, the old woman became concerned that
 there are no lessons to be learned from man's good deeds.

 The Creator replied that Man's capacity to love is the greatest gift
 He has. At the root of kindness and love, and each act of
 love also teaches us a lesson.

 The woman's curiosity deepened.

The Creator, once again began to explain:
 "When someone loves us, it teaches us love, kindness,
 charity, honesty, humility, forgiveness, acceptance, and all
 of these can counteract all the evil in the world. For every
 good deed, there is one evil deed. Man alone has the power
 to control the balance between good and evil, but because
 the lessons of love are not taught often enough, the power is
 too often abused.

 When you enter someone's life, whether by plan, chance or
 coincidence, consider what your lesson will be. Will you teach
 love or a harsh lesson of reality? When you die, will your life
 have resulted in more loving or more hurting? More comfort
 or more pain? More joy or more sadness? Each one of us has
 the power over the balance of the love in the world.
 Use it wisely!"

 Don't miss an opportunity to nudge the world's scale in the
 right direction!
