One Day I Decided To Quit


ONE DAY I DECIDED TO QUIT

I quit my job, my relationship, my spirituality… I wanted to quit my life.

I went to the woods to have one last talk with God.

“God”, I asked, “Can you give me one good reason not to quit?”.

His answer surprised me…

“Look around”, He said. “Do you see the fern and the bamboo?

“Yes”, I replied.

“When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them.

I gave them light. I gave them water. The fern quickly grew from the earth.

Its brilliant green covered the floor. Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo. In the second year, the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful.

And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo. He said.

“In year three there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would not quit.

 

The Suitcase – a meeting with GOD!

A man d-i.e.d, when he realized it, he saw God coming closer with a suitcase in his hand.

– God said: Alright son its time to go.

– Surprised the man responded: Now? So soon? I had a lot of plans…

– I’m sorry but its time to go.

– What do you have in that suitcase? the man asked.

– God answered: Your belongings.

– My belongings? you mean my things, my clothes, my money?

– God answered: Those things were not yours, they belonged to the earth.

– Is it my memory? the man asked.

– God answered: those never belonged to you they belonged to Time

– Is it my talent?

– God answered: those were never yours, they belonged to the circumstances.

– Is it my friends and family?

– God answered: I’m sorry they were never yours, they belonged to the path.

– Is it my wife and son?

– God answered: They were never yours, they belonged to your heart.

– Is it my body?

– God answered: that was never yours, it belonged to the dust.

– Is it my soul?

God answered: No that is mine.

Full of fear, the man took the suitcase from god and opened it just to find out the suitcase was empty.

– With a tear coming down his cheek the man said: I never had anything???

– God answered: that is correct, every moment you lived were only for yours. You never lived for somebody who is not related to you in any way.

Moral:

Do something for other people who can’t return the favor back to you. Life is just a moment. A moment that belongs to you.

– Live Now

– Live your life

– Don’t forget to be happy and make others happy, as that is the only thing that matters.

– Material things and everything else that you fought for staying here.

– YOU CAN’T TAKE ANYTHING
