Once, some SAINTS were walking along the BANK OF THE RIVER GANGES... At one place a big depression was caused due to fall of water from a great height, resulting in the formation of 'foam' there.
From somewhere, a scorpion happened to fall into the foam & was struggling.
One of the saints lamented, "This scorpion is caught in the foam & is not able to come out of it. We must try to save it."
To save the scorpion, the saint got into the water & put his hand into the foam to remove the scorpion. At once the scorpion 'stung'. The saint was in deep pain, but again put his hand into the foam to save it. And again the scorpion bit his hand. Still he didn't leave his attempt & without caring about the pain, after a few attempts, ultimately succeeded in taking the scorpion out & put it on the ground!!!
The other SAINTS really admired this act & commented, "The scorpion didn't stop biting you even though you were trying to save it. You have really taken great pains to save this deadly scorpion! WHY?"
Then the SAVIOUR replied, "The scorpion didn't forget its' NATURE even when it was caught between life & death. Being born as a HUMAN BEING, should I forget MY DIVINE NATURE?"
"The difference between you & me is that I KNOW THAT I AM GOD and YOU DON'T KNOW THAT YOU ALSO ARE GOD!!! Your objective is to realize this ultimate truth about your DIVINITY."
DUST IF YOU THINK DUST YOU ARE.
GOD IF YOU THINK GOD YOU ARE.
AS YOU THINK SO YOU ARE.
THINK GOD AND BE GOD. – SWAMI
