Excellent story about being aware, thinking outside the box (sometimes called Possibility Thinking) and choosing to create a higher outcome.
If we pay close attention and truly observe things we can often find things are not always as they seem or as they are being presented. It takes us using our perception to see that every event has both a positive, Beneficial side to equal the negative, Detrimental side.
It is a matter of which one we choose to look for, focus on and think about that we will ultimately decide to bring about.
In this story, had the girl just wanted a husband, she could have chosen either pebble. If she wanted to make trouble, she could have exposed his crooked tactics. But she wanted the higher outcome to both help her father and be free to marry an honorable man so she had to Create a higher outcome of her own.
Great story Nitima! Thank you for sharing it. Lotsa lessons hidden in it!
