Warning To You

Borobudur

Early this morning, I received a notification on my iPad an email with the subject “Warning to you….” I thought to myself, ” Oh no, not again!” You see, my Macbook was infected with virus a couple of weeks ago when I trying to clear many of the old email that still archive in my inbox. It cost me a few hundred bugs and the assistance of a online technician from apple to have my MacBook clean.

The reason I  was clearing this is simple, I just making new goals and to unlearn, relearn and do something that I had been plaining for a long time but also finding excuses to procrastinate.

Seeing  the WARNING email, I immediately log in and read the email. It is a warning letter no doubt but a positive warning,  to me it came aptly to remind me that I MUST DO instead of  Thinking of doing.

How often we wanted to do something to change our status  of our life and the situation we were in but was overwhelmed by the challenges and obstacles in front of us. Remember the Rich Monk, Poor Monk. The Rich Monk who was thinking of going around the country to preach the teaching of Buddha, the Rich Monk is constantly preparing for his journey,  accessing and analysing the environment and situation and waiting for the perfect time.

If you are asked to walk a Thousand Miles, will you do it? In today technology, if you travel in a vehicle, probably takes about 10-15 hours, high speed train, 5-8 hours and aeroplane, about 2 hours. So why do we have to walk? Right?

Have you heard of the story of Rich Monk Poor Monk. Not the rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert t. Kiyosaki.. The story goes like this,

In ancient China, there was a Rich Monk and a Poor Monk. The rich Monk is rich because he taught in a big temple in the city where many ministers and dignities were his follower and willing done to his temple.  The Poor Monk was poor because he taught in small villages and helping the poor villagers to find peace of mind and overcome live   difficulty.

One day the poor monk went to the big temple and said to the Rich Monk, ” I will be going around the country to share the spread the teaching of Buddha and help more people to seek enlightenment.”

The Rich Monk asked, “What and who will you bring?”

The Poor Monk replied, ” Nothing, just my will to share the teaching of Buddha.”

“You must be insane,” said the Rich Monk, ” I have been trying to do this for years and with our temple financial status , I still cannot do it. What make you think you can?”

The poor Monk just smile, bow to the Rich Monk and started his journey of thousand miles, He visited many villages through the remote jungle and mountain and share the teaching and brought peace to countless villages and people. Along the way, he receive help from well wisher and followers. As days past, his followers grow bigger and bigger and words started to spread that ONE Monk had bring peace and joy and enlightenment to many people.

Years passed by, one day the Rich monk received an invitation to attend a preaching  by a very well respected monk in the capital city. When he attended the preaching, he was shocked to see that the famous monk was the Poor Monk. After the sermon, the Rich Monk asked the Poor Monk, “Brother, how do you did that? ” w

The Poor Monk replied ” Just a Will to achieve, my brother. As I go along, help and assist shall surface, when obstacles come, I earn to overcome it along the way. The more steps I walk and more preaching I do, I become better and obstacles become lesser. That is how I did it.”

The moral of the story is JUST DO IT. There is no  perfect time and situation.
