Life is a Reflection

I recently read an article which we can easily correlate it to the Karma i.e. “As you sow… So shall you reap…” or in Hindi we say “Jaisi karni waisi bharni


A son and his father were walking on the mountains. Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams: “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!” To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain: “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!” Curious, he yells: “Who are you?”

He receives the answer: “Who are you?” And then he screams to the mountain: “I admire you!” The voice answers: “I admire you!” Angered at the response, he screams: “Coward!” He receives the answer: “Coward!”

He looks to his father and asks: “What’s going on?” The father smiles and says: “My son, pay attention.” Again the man screams: “You are a champion!” The voice answers: “You are a champion!”

The boy is surprised, but does not understand. Then the father explains: “People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE.” It gives you back everything you say or do.


Our life is simply a reflection of our actions.

  • If you want to get good, do good.
  • If you want more love from the world, create more love in your heart.
  • If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence.

This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life; Life will give you back everything you have given to it.

“Your life is not a coincidence. It’s a reflection of you!”

Newton also said this in his 3rd law that “Every action has equal and opposite reaction“. It also proves this theory. Whatever you do, you’ll get the same. If we point a finger to someone we should always keep this in mind that other 3 fingers are pointing to ourselves and being in others shoes always help us to mature better.

We should all believe it and start thinking in these lines. Life is too short to be short tempered. No one in this world is too complicated to be loved, so spread love.

Believe me it is very easy to be loved… You just need to love everyone… Try it ..
