You will never know (“kepastian” yang tidak abadi)

There once was a small village where a young child was bought a horse for his 9th birthday.. the villagers heard about this, and said that this was fantastic news… but when the Zen Master heard about this he simply said “we shall see”…

Three years later the boy fell of his horse and broke his legs, the villagers were distrought, “what terrible news” they said.. but the Zen Master simply said “we shall see”.

One year later the country went to war, and due to his injury the boy was able to stay at home instead of fighting, “what great news” said the villagers, and once again, the Zen Master simply said:

“we shall see”.

The purpose of me sharing this tale with you is to reinforce the fact that life is a series of ups and downs, and if you are at a low point right now, it may be for a reason, and if you are on a high, don’t take it for granted, don’t get too comfortable or lethargic, keep on working, and keep on having fun.

Remember, Life is just a series of peaks and troughs. And you don’t know whether you’re in a trough until you’re climbing out, or on a peak until you’re coming down. And that’s it you know, you never know what’s round the corner.
