Do you all drive cars here in Bahrain? Yes! When you drive a car what do you do? You look at the side mirrors, rear view mirror and you look in the windshield as well. How do you balance all three? You can’t say, 'I will only look at the rear mirror', or, 'I only look in the front', or, 'I only look at the sides'. You have to simultaneously do all the three and you do that? Exactly same way!
Rear view mirror is like knowing the past. You should have little memory of the past. If you have done some mistake, it should not be repeated. Front mirror is like the vision of life ahead. That is why, the front windshield is very big and the rear view mirror is very small. Then there are side mirrors, these are for you to be aware of what is happening around you all the time. So how you use all three? Exactly same way!
