THE EMPEROR AND THE BEGGAR
An emperor was coming out of his palace for his morning walk when he met a beggar. He asked the beggar, "What do you want?"The beggar laughed and said, "You are asking me as though you can fulfill my desire!"
Go into one desire -- what is the mechanism of it? First there is a great excitement, great thrill, adventure.we feel a great kick. Something is going to happen,we are on the verge of it. And then we have the car,we have that special someone of our dreams,we have the dream house,we have all the luxuries, and suddenly all is meaningless again.
When the desire is fulfilled- the car in the drive, the luxuries at our home, the money in our bank account, the special someone in our life- again all the excitement disappears. Again the emptiness dawns, ready to eat us up. Again we have to create another desire to escape this yawning abyss.
The day we understand that desire as such is going to fail, comes the turning point in our life.
The other journey is inwards. move inwards, come back home!
Never Explain Yourself To Anybody
Becoz the person who likes you doesn't need it
And the person who dislikes you wont believe it.
