Life moves fast.
Living today means often a world of cellular phones, mobile computers and other high-tech gadgets. Not much connecting.
We make money and then try to make more money. Does it end? Does this matter?
What Should You Do?
I have read many books on life that pretend that money doesn’t matter. Bull.
So, I went to my longtime mentor. He laughed and then took me to a window,
“What do you see?” he asked me.
“I can see people walking to and fro and a blind dude pan handling. ”
My mentor smiled and then took me to the bathroom mirror. “Now look and tell me what you see?”
“Uh, that’s a good looking guy. That’s me, ” I answered.
My mentor laughed. “Now you can’t see anyone else. The mirror and the window are both made of glass, but with the mirror you see a reflection.”
My mentor folded his arms. “Compare yourself to the window and the mirror. With one you see with compassion and the other you only focus on yourself.”
“It takes courage to clear our eyes and see more than ourselves. You will get this. Just clear the crud.”
I have thought of what he said and come to the conclusion that he had a point. Money counts and we should not aim to lead a money free existence. Silly to try. But, I am going to do so by removing the crud.
Good advice. Don’t just live focusing on the reflection.
