Jack wonders whether it would be all right to smoke while praying.
Max replies, “Why don’t you ask the Priest?”
So Jack goes up to the Priest and asks, “Father, may I smoke while I pray?”
The Priest replies, “No, my son, you may not! That’s utter disrespect to our religion.”
Jack goes back to his friend and tells him what the good Priest told him.
Max says, “I’m not surprised. You asked the wrong question. Let me try.”
And so Max goes up to the Priest and asks, “Father, may I pray while I smoke?”
To which the Priest eagerly replies, “By all means, my son. By all means. You can always pray whenever you want to.”
Moral of the story: The approval you want depends on the way u ask for it!! more
Asking for approvals is a task like any other which we do. Doing a task; is merely the result of our views; primarily about how our mind interprets and realizes the understanding which we gain; essentially about a situation outside; which largely depends upon the beliefs we believe in.
If we believe in the belief; that religion or praying and smoking are two separate and opposite issues; then our such belief will drive us to work for respecting religion and praying only and not smoking as well.
However if we have worked to ensure that we not only allow ourselves to believe in those thoughts and understanding of our own selves, which the guidance and driving ability of beliefs give to us; but simultaneously also; allow our selves to work for seeking and gaining the support of the knowledge and talent of the powers, intelligence, wisdom, and skills of the task which needs to be performed; especially by first giving respect to such knowledge and talent only; then we can enjoy the otherwise separate and opposite issues; both together. more
