Hope

Master, one day I asked, we have never seen you sad or worried, you are always full of hope and happiness, what is the secret of your hope that life would always turn out to be good?

And the Master said –

Once I met a happy man without arms. He said: when the world raises its arms, I raise my soul

Once I met a happy man without legs. He said: when the world steps up to climb, I step upon my sorrow

Once I met a happy man without eyes. He said: when the world opens its eye to see, I open my heart to believe

Once I met a happy man without friends. He said: when the world rejoice with friends, I rejoice with God

Once I met a happy man without home. He said: when the world seeks a home, I seek the earth

Once I met a happy man without food. He said: when the world eats, I breathe

Once I met a happy man without wealth. He said: when the world spends, I smile

Once I met a happy man without love. He said: when the world seeks love, I seek the ones the world has forgotten to love

Once I met a happy man without life (he was about to die). He said: when the world lives, I prepare to be alive


And one day I met a man who had everything yet he was miserable and distraught. He said: I have everything yet I am afraid and fearful since I am afraid of losing what I have, and I cannot get what I don’t have. I wish I had hope and faith and belief, but I lost them on the way to wealth.
