Life is simply a reflection of our thinking.

A son and his father were walking in the mountains.

Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams: "AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!! …
why did that stump trip me?"

To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain:
"AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!! … why did that stump trip me?"

Curious, he yells: "Who are you and why did you put that in my way"

He receives the answer: "Who are you and why did you put that in my way".

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."

And then he screams to the mountain: "I admire you!" The voice answers: "I admire you!"

Again the man screams: "You are a champion with unlimited power!"

The voice answers: "You are a champion with unlimited power!"

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 thinking.
