What do you see?

Sepasang orang muda yang baru menikah menempati sebuah rumah di sebuah kompleks perumahan. Suatu pagi, sewaktu sarapan, sang istri melalui jendela kaca mereka, melihat tetangganya sedang menjemur kain.
A young couple who just married lived in their new house. One morning, while they were taking breakfast, wife saw their neighbor hanging clothes through their window and told her husband:

“Cuciannya kelihatan kurang bersih ya”, kata sang istri. “Sepertinya dia tidak tahu cara mencuci pakaian dengan benar.  Mungkin dia perlu sabun cuci yang lebih bagus.”
“She did not wash her clothes well,” she said. “Maybe she did not know how to wash well. Or, maybe she need a good one soap.”

Suaminya menoleh, tetapi hanya diam dan tidak memberi komentar apapun.
Her husband saw, but did not say a word.

Sejak hari itu setiap wanita tetangganya menjemur pakaian, selalu saja sang istri memberikan komentar yang sama tentang kurang bersihnya si tetangga mencuci pakaian-pakaiannya.
Since then, she commented the same to every woman clothes that hanging.

Seminggu berlalu, sang istri heran melihat pakaian-pakaian yang dijemur tetangganya terlihat cemerlang dan bersih, dan dia berseru kepada suaminya.
A week passed, wife surprised when she saw the their neighbor clothes that hanging were very clean, so she told her husband:

“Lihat, sepertinya dia telah belajar bagaimana mencuci dengan benar.  Siapa ya kira-kira yang sudah mengajarinya?”
“Look, she has been learn how to wash well. Who tell her?”

Sang suami berkata, “Saya bangun pagi-pagi sekali hari ini dan membersihkan jendela kaca kita.”
Her husband said, “I woke  up early this morning and cleaned our window’s glass.”

Bagaimana kita melihat orang lain dan hal-hal yang terjadi dalam hidup kita, tergantung pada pikiran yang jernih.
How we see people or things are depend on the clarity of our mind as our window.
