YOU WILL NEVER COMPLAIN FOR ANYTHING IN LIFE | The other side | Zen story | Words of wisdom stories

[Music] once upon a time a young buddhist monk was journeying back to his home the young buddhist monk was travelling alone it had been long since he had visited home many days passed by walking one day on his journey back home he came to a river it was a beautiful day and the river was shining magnificently now the road chosen by the young buddhist monk required him to cross the river the young monk looked around trying to find a way to get across he tried hard but could not find anything after a long time of looking for a way to cross the river the young buddhist monk decided to give up and thought i am never going to find a way across this river just as he was about to give up on crossing the river he spotted a man on the other side the man on the other side looked like a zen teacher he was meditating the young buddhist monk called out loudly oh wise one will you answer a question of mine the zen teacher opened his eyes and looked at the young monk the young mom cast sir please tell me how can i get on the other side the zen teacher's face brightened up at the question he looked at the young monk and said my dear friend you are already on the other side if we see in our lives then we will find that as a human beings it seems as if we are constantly trying to get somewhere more staff better job next vacation if we relate it to the young buddhist monk in this story it is almost as if we are shouting to the word how do i get over there or right here it is not enough so how do i get over there just like the young buddhist monk we also look for things in our lives but we forget that we already have too much to be thankful for but every time we set our eyes on the things we don't have or possess we always want to get something better the other side here refers to the human desire of getting to the next best thing without appreciating what we already have the zen teacher was trying to tell the young buddhist monk that he was already there like the most of us therefore always appreciate what you have [Music] [Applause]
