Flexibilidad en la vida

Permita que le cuente una pequeña historia.

Dos acorazados asignados a la escuadra de entrenamiento habían estado de maniobras en el mar con tempestad durante varios días. Yo servía en el buque insignia y estaba de guardia en el puente cuando caía la noche. La visibilidad era pobre; había niebla, de modo que el capitán permanecía sobre el puente supervisando todas las actividades.

Poco después de que oscureciera, el vigía que estaba en el extremo del puente informó: «Luz a estribor».

«¿Rumbo directo o se desvía hacia popa? », gritó el capitán. El vigía respondió «Directo, capitán», lo que significaba que nuestro propio curso nos estaba conduciendo a una colisión con aquel buque.

El capitán llamó al encargado de emitir señales. «Envía este mensaje: Estamos a punto de chocar; aconsejamos cambiar 20 grados su rumbo.»

Llegó otra señal de respuesta: «Aconsejamos que ustedes cambien 20 grados su rumbo». El capitán dijo: «Contéstele: Soy capitán; cambie su rumbo 20 grados».

«Soy marinero de segunda clase —nos respondieron—. Mejor cambie su rumbo 20 grados.» El capitán ya estaba hecho una furia. Espetó: «Conteste: Soy un acorazado. Cambie su rumbo 20 grados». La linterna del interlocutor envió su último mensaje: «Yo soy un faro». Tuvimos que cambiar nuestro rumbo.

Historia de Frank Koch “La revista del Instituto Naval”.

Vemos las cosas, no en los términos de nuestro sentido de la vista, sino como percepción, comprensión, interpretación. Cada uno de los grupos implicados está convencido de que el problema está «allí afuera», y de que si «ellos» (es decir, todos los otros implicados) «entraran en razón» o «desaparecieran de la vista», ese problema quedaría resuelto.

En otra historia, dos leones habían llegado al mismo tiempo a un pequeño río para beber agua, pero hacía tanto calor que el compartir no era una opción. Uno de ellos dijo ‘Yo llegué primero, vete’, pero el otro le contestó ‘¡No! Yo llegué primero. TU vete de aquí’. Ambos estaban tan ensimismados en su pelea que se abalanzaron uno contra el otro, despedazándose entre ellos. De haberse puesto a pensar que podrían tomar turnos para beber, no se habrían matado entre sí, pero la inflexibilidad los consumió.

A veces tenemos que dejar que nuestro brazo se tuerza en lugar de continuar con nuestra terquedad. Si insistimos con la idea de que estamos en lo correcto y de que los demás deberían acatar órdenes, nuestro destino se dirigirá hacia el desastre.

En vez de persistir con nuestra opinión, démonos un tiempo para ver desde el otro punto de vista. Nuestra visión del mundo se hará más grande cuando aceptemos que hay otros métodos para resolver problemas, para crecer y mejorar. No todos piensan meterse en nuestro camino o negarse a comprender por lo que estamos pasando, podemos enriquecer nuestras vidas si dejamos espacio para que otros entren, ya sean ideas, descubrimientos o personas, nos permitirá ser más abiertos, más listos, más sabios.

Recuerda que la lengua no se rompe, es blanda y flexible; los dientes son los que se quiebran porque son duros.
