A WISE MAN

81

It is said that in the last century, an American tourist went to the city of Cairo, Egypt, to visit a wise man.

When the tourist got into the house he was surprised because the wise man lived in a simple and small room full of books. A bed, a night table and a bench were the only pieces of furniture this man had.

Where is your furniture? The tourist asked. But the wise man, quickly, asked him back:  And where is yours?

Mine? the tourist asked in a surprised way . I am here just passing through!

Me too, said the wise man. “Life on earth is temporary. However, some people live their lives as if they were going to stay on earth forever. That`s why they forget to be happy”.

“The value of things has nothing to do with the time they last, but the intensity they occur. For that reason we experience unforgettable moments, live awesome things and know amazing people”.

Remember:

God won´t ask you what car brand you had, He will ask you how many people you got into your car.

God won´t ask you how big your house was, He will ask you how many people you invited to stay in it.

God will not ask you for the brand of the clothing in your closet, He will ask you how many people you give them clothes for them to get dress.

God won´t ask you how high your salary was, He will ask you if you sold your integrity to be well paid.

God won´t ask you what the title of your degree was, He will ask you how good you were whilr doing your job.

God won´t ask you how many friends you had, He will ask you how many people considered you were their friend.

God won´t ask you in what neighborhood you lived, He will ask you treated your neighbors.

God won´t ask you for your skin color. He will ask you for your inner purity.

God won´t ask you why it took you too much time to receive the gift of Salvation, He will take you, with love, his house in Heaven and not to the doors of hell.

Remember these words to achieve happiness:

  1. Free your heart from hatred
  2. Free your mind from worry
  3. Live simply
  4. Give more
  5. Wait less
