Work Accident

Merv was in a terrible accident at work. He fell through a floor tile and ripped off both of his ears. Since he was permanently disfigured, he settled with the company for a rather large sum of money and went on his way.

One day, Merv decided to invest his money in a small, but growing telecom business called Plexus Communications. After weeks of negotiations, he bought the company outright. But, after signing on the doted line he realized that he knew nothing about running such a business and quickly set out to hire someone who could do that for him.

The next day he had set up three interviews. The first guy was great. He knew everything he needed to and was very interesting. At the end of the interview, Merv asked him, "Do you notice anything different about me?" And the gentleman answered, "Why yes, I couldn't help but notice you have no ears."

Merv got very angry and threw him out.

The second interview was with a woman, and she was even better than the first guy. He asked her the same question, "Do you notice anything different about me?" and she replied: "Well, you have no ears."

Merv again was upset and tossed her out.

The third and last interview was the best of all three. It was with a very young man who was fresh out of college. He was smart. He was handsome and he seemed to be a better businessman than the first two put together. Merv was anxious, but went ahead and asked the young man the same question:

"Do you notice anything different about me?" And to his surprise, the young man answered: "Yes. You wear contact lenses." Merv was shocked, and said, "What an incredibly observant young man. How in the world did you know that?"

The young man fell off his chair laughing hysterically and replied, "Well, it's pretty damn hard to wear glasses with no ears!"

Sri Chinmoy

If we know the divine art of concentration, if we know the divine art of meditation, if we know the divine art of contemplation, easily and consciously we can unite the inner world and the outer world.
Sri Chinmoy

You can only hate someone whom you have the capacity to love, because if you are really indifferent, you cannot even get up the enough energy to hate him.
Sri Chinmoy

By hating that person, you have lost something very sweet in yourself.
Sri Chinmoy

Complete and total perfection will come about only when we feel that our perfection is no perfections as long as the rest of humanity remains imperfect.
Sri Chinmoy

Do not try to approach God with your thinking mind. It may only stimulate your intellectual ideas, activities, and beliefs. Try to approach God with your crying heart. It will awaken your soulful, spiritual consciousness.
Sri Chinmoy

Whether you accept or reject it, God's Love for you is permanent.
Sri Chinmoy

There comes a time in the seeker's life when he discovers that he is at once the lover and the beloved.
Sri Chinmoy

Be universal in your love. You will see the universe to be the picture of your own being.
Sri Chinmoy

If we call ourselves children of God, then others are also children of God.
Sri Chinmoy

Love is the only wealth that man absolutely needs. Love is the only wealth that God precisely is.
Sri Chinmoy

You hate someone whom you really wish to love, but whom you cannot love. Perhaps he himself prevents you. That is a disguised form of love.
Sri Chinmoy

He who loves, never grows old. God it a shining example.
Sri Chinmoy

  1. I think this article is unfinished, is anyone got hired? Merv accident is very unbelievable, I feel terrible for Merv having to lose his two ears because of the accident at work he had. That incident affect negatively to Merv, he become conscious and people can’t help asking how he loses his ears; but they should not judge him in the way he looks now. All I can say that even if we lose a part of us we still need to move on to our lives, things happen for a reason, don’t think about what other people might say, just be positive and live life to the fullest.

  2. Great post! Thanks a lot for sharing this information. Cheers!
