There was once a rich man who lived in a mansion.He has many children.

One day he discovered that he had lost his watch. It was no ordinary watch because it had sentimental value for him.

After searching high and low in his room for a long while; he gave up and He ordered the children to conduct a search in the house.

He promised them that the person who found it would be rewarded.

Hearing this, the children hurriedly went through and around the rooms in the mansion but still could not find the watch. Just when the rich man was about to give up looking for his watch, his fifth daughter, Amaka went up to him and asked to be given another chance.The rich man looked at her and thought, “Why not? After all, his children look sincere enough.”

So the rich man waited patiently for her daughter. After a while the little girl came out with the watch in her hand! The father(the rich man) was both happy and surprised and so he asked her how she succeeded where the rest had failed.

She replied, “I did nothing but sit on the bed in each room and listen. In the silence, I heard the ticking of the watch in your room and just looked for it in that direction.”

Moral : A peaceful mind can think better than a worked up mind. Allow a few minutes of silence to your mind every day, and see, how sharply it helps you to set your life the way you expect it to be! ~ The soul always knows what to do to heal itself..The challenge is to silence the mind….
