How do you feel when you are looking at a pile of dung?
Do you love it?
Do you want to touch it?
I am sure that most of you will answer:” Oh no…..”
However, do you notice that a worm is so attached to the pile of dung?
Recently, I read a very good book from Ajahn Brahm, “The Art of Disappearing”, he mentioned that “a worm is so attached to the pile of dung in which he lives that he’s not willing to give it up, even he’s promised a place in heaven. His job as a teacher is pulling people out of their own piles of dung. Often, people simply love to stay in dung. You pull people out a bit, and then they decide to crawl back. “
Be silence and contemplate about it…
Are you so attached with what you have?
Are you willing to let go easily?
Are you greedy?
Are you making decision based on self-interest or self benefit?
Are you always in anger?
Are you ignorant? Are you seeking the TRUTH or blind believe?
How about your ego? “I”, “My”, “Mine”?
Are you willing to let go “I”?
Are you always doubtful in others?
Why are we keep living in a piles of dung? Why are we always thinking we’ve times?
Why do you need to regret at your death-bed?
Why NOT take action now to come out from a piles of dung while you are young, healthy, energetic?
