Last night, we friends were together and had a party. We had been talking about different issues related to this world at the moment and everyone agreed that the era we are living in, is full of turbulance and turmoil and that one must always strive for reducing the difficulties of others, not to increase it. In the meanwhile, a friend who was keeping quiet for a long time and was kind of indifferent, told us a story. This really affected me so, I want to share with you as well.

"Once upon a time, there was a king who used to rule over good people and the country was prosperous - no one had anything to complain about and people loved their king. One day, a saint came by and the king gave him respect he deserved. After a while, the king asked the saint to grant him any kind of token, like amulet, etc. which could help the king in difficult times.

The soldiers came, they fought and escaped the enemy somehow. They entered to another country, gathered his army and equipped with weapon, and at last went back to fight the enemies. After a fierce fighting, the king regained the country and sat on his throne with great pomp and show. His bravery earned him a great respect from the people and this made him proud on himself. All of a sudden, he remembed the words of the saint that said "This time will pass by, too" and he repented.

The morale of the story is, that never think that you are in sorrow and grief and this will last forever or never think the happiness you got is for ever; time will pass by and only those will be successful who know how to tackle the th
