Do you always look for shortcut during traffic jam?
We might assume that shortcut can shorten the time to arrive in our destination.
However, in reality this might not be the case.
Normally, we love to check the travel time and the best route before we start our journey. My recent experience was I tend to follow the proposed route with all short cut and can arrive to the destination in shortest time. However, in reality it took longest time to arrive destination.
Sometimes, we might think we are so clever that we know the shortcut and we can save our time. However, we spend more time by using the shortcut.
This incident reminded us that we love to follow shortcut in our life, like to get rich in short period, trap ourselves in scam, by corruption, by cheating others and involved in unwholesome action. Like our spiritual practice, some of us love to find shortcut, to believe in a wrong path that can attain fastest”enlightenment”.
Just imagine, what is the process of building a high-rise building? It must start from foundation and follow by floor after floor. There is no shortcut to build a solid and strong building. As such, always think clearly before you follow any shortcut in life!
