Two friends were sitting in a park.
They sat in silence for several moments on this sunny afternoon when suddenly one friend turned to the other and said, “What are you thinking about?”
The friend said calmly, “I am praying for all those with troubled minds, broken hearts and weary souls. Praying that they may be comforted and that their spirits be lifted.”
The friend was astonished with this profound selfless thought and said, “I can never think of anything as nice as that.”
The friend replied, “Such thoughts require but one skill, my friend; a skill that all human beings have.”
“What is that?” the other asked.
The friend simply replied, “Selfishness.”
I was born and now it is today.
