“Seeing Only Self”


One day a certain old, miserly, rich man visited a rabbi, who took him by the hand and led him to a window. “Look out there,” he said. And the rich man looked out into the street.


“What do you see?” asked the rabbi.

“I see men, and women, and little children,’ answered the rich man.”


Again the rabbi took him by the hand, and led him to a mirror. “What do you see now?”


“Now I see myself,” the rich man replied.


Then the Rabbi said, “Behold, in the window there is glass. But the glass of the mirror is covered with silver, and no sooner is the silver added than you fail to see others, but see only yourself.” --Dawn
