Have you discovered that, when you lose or lack something, you will always remember it, but when you have it, it’s easy to overlook, even look without seeing it?
There was a very rich man. Anything that can be bought with money, he buys to enjoy. However, he himself felt unhappy, not happy at all.
One day, he had a strange idea, put all the precious things, gold, silver, and jewels in a big bag and went on a trip. He decided that just someone could tell him how to happy then he will give a whole sack of wealth to that person.
Everywhere he went, he searched and asked, and then came to a village where a farmer told him that he should go see a Grand Master, if the Master has no way, even if he goes all over the horizon. No one can help him either.
Finally, finding the Master sitting in meditation, he was overjoyed and said to the Master: “I have only one purpose, my whole life’s wealth is in this bag. As long as you tell me how to be happy, this bag will be yours.”
At that time it was already dark, night was about to fall, the Great Master at that time grabbed the bag and ran away. Phu Ong was afraid, crying while calling to chase: “I have been deceived, my whole life’s passion”.
Happiness is not far away!
Then the Grandmaster returned and returned the sack to the rich man. Phu Ong saw the bag he thought was lost and immediately hugged it and said: “That’s good!”. The Master calmly stood in front of him and asked, “How do you feel? Are you happy?” – “Happy! I feel so happy already!”.
At this time, the Master laughed and said: “This is not a special method, it’s just that people take everything they have for granted, so they don’t feel that its existence is natural. happiness, what he lacked was a lost opportunity. Do you know how important what you have? In fact, the bag you are holding in your lap with the previous one is one, do you still want to give it to me now?”.
This interesting story made me suddenly recognize myself in it. Have you discovered that, when you lose or lack something, you will always remember it, but when you have it, it’s easy to overlook, even look without seeing it?
If ever loved, you will understand it. First love…
The other party calls you to visit you, gives you gifts, makes you happy for a long time. However, once you’ve established a relationship or gotten married, it all disappears or it all becomes obvious. And when it’s a matter of course, do you still appreciate it?
People are always concerned and nostalgic for what they have lost but do not know how to appreciate what they have, are living in happiness without knowing they are happy. Perhaps, that is the greatest human misfortune and also the reason why happiness remains invisible.
God gives us the ability to see, then he will arrange for us lessons about loss, loss so that we can see. Seeing her happy holding !
