Finding A Soul Mate
Once upon a time there was a teacher and his student. They
lay down under a big tree near a big grass field. Then suddenly,
the student asked the teacher,
Student: Teacher, I'm confused about how we find our soul
mate. Can you please help me?
Teacher stays silent for a few seconds.
Teacher: Well, it's a pretty hard question.
Teacher: Look on that way. There is a lot of grass there.
Why don't you trying walking there. The only rule is that
you can only walk straight ahead but not backwards. On your
way, try to find the most beautiful grass and pick it up
for me. Pick only one grass.
Student: Well, ok then. Wait for me.
(Related : Short
Student walks straight ahead to the grass field. A few
Student: I'm back
Teacher: Well, I don't see any beautiful grass on your hand.
Student: On my journey, I found a few beautiful stalks of
grass. However, I thought I would find a better one so I
didn't pick any up. Before I knew it, I am at the end of
the field and I hadn't picked any grass. I didn’t
go back for the grasses as you told me to only walk straight
(Related : Life
Teacher: That's what happens in real life. The grass refers
to the people around you while beautiful grasses are those
people that you are attracted to. You were comparing between
the different grasses too much to notice the most beautiful
grass. Similarly, when going through the path of life, please
don't always compare your partner in the hope of finding
a better soul mate. By doing that, you'll waste your lifetime
away. Try to always accept what he/she is as nobody is perfect.
