An old and very wise man once said to his friend:

— look at the room carefully in which we are now, and try to remember things of brown color.

There was a lot of brown colour in the room, and his friend quickly coped with this task.

But the wise Chinese asked him the following question:

—Now close your eyes and list all the things ... blue.

The friend was confused and indignant:

—I did not notice anything blue, because I only remember things brown on your orders!

When the wise man answered him:

—Open your eyes, look around - there are so many blue things in the room.

And that was pure truth.

Then the wise continued:

— If you are looking for things in the room only brown, and in life - only bad, then you will only see them, notice them only, and only them you will remember and participate in your life. Remember: if you are looking for something bad, then you will find it and you will never notice anything good.

Three wise men sat in the shade of a large tree and enjoyed the conversation.

They argued about what is more important for a person - past, present or future.

One of them said:

─ My past makes me who I am. I can do what I have learned in the past. I like people with whom I was good before, or similar to them.

─ It's impossible to agree with this, said another, "a person makes his future." It does not matter what I know and what I can do now, I will learn what I need in the future. My actions now depend not on what I was, but on what I'm about to become. I like people different from those I knew before.

─ You've completely lost sight of it," interjected the third, "that the past and the future exist only in our thoughts." The past is no longer there. The future is not there, and regardless of whether you recall the past or dream of the future, you act only in the present.
