5 Blind men


5 Blind men trying to figure out what kind of an object an elephant is. Each touches a different part of the elephant. The one who touches the legs says its a pillar, the one who touches the trunk says its pipe, the one who touches the tail says its a piece of a rope. Each ones opinions differ. Hence if they need to know what kind of an object an elephant is, they need to feel it from all sides. Most people are like these blind men. Trying to live life by looking at a single perspective of life.
To know the truth and reality we have to move beyond the ‘singular perspective’ of who we are and what we are doing.
