Living in today’s world of cell phones, laptops, and other high-tech devices is not just a hectic business, but a very impersonal one. We earn money and then we invest our time and effort to earn more money. Does it expire? Usually not because we are never satisfied. How many times have we convinced ourselves that if we had some extra money, life would be so sweet? But then after receiving a big raise, do we realize that it wasn’t enough and that we need more?
What should you do?
I have read many books about life like Robin Sharma’s books. The monk says this and the monk says it and they all seem to say that money is not necessary. But it is. Can you do without cash and a lot? I know I can’t.
So, I went to the Rabbi neighborhood and asked for advice to help me find my true path in life.
The rabbi nodded and led me to the window. “do you see?” he asked me.
I immediately replied: “I can see people walking from one side to another and a blind man begging in the left corner.”
The rabbi nodded and led me to a large mirror. “Now look and tell me what you see?”
The man replied, “I can see myself.”
The rabbi smiled. “Now you can’t see anyone else. The mirror and the window are made of the same raw material: glass, but since a thin layer of silver is applied to one of them, when you look at it all you can see is your own reflection. “.
The rabbi put his arm on my shoulder. “Compare yourself to these two pieces of glass. Without the silver cape, you saw other people and felt sympathy for them. When you are covered in silver, you only see yourself.”
I looked at the rabbi and looked. “I do not understand.”
Follow the rabbi. “You will only become a person if you have the courage to remove the silver covering that covers your eyes so that you can see and love others again.” I patted him on the back and he sent me on my way.
I thought about what he had to say and came to the conclusion that he was right. Yes. We need money and we should not aspire to live a life without money; It makes no sense and will only cause us and our families a lot of sadness in the future.
Instead, I suggest we follow the advice the rabbi gave me. When we approach life through a silvery cloak, all we can see is ourselves. But ignore this cover and you can see and feel others.
In life we are allowed and should be able to look at both types of mirrors, but we must remember that a mirror only reflects us; The window is the door to mercy, health and true wealth. In other words, seek wealth by all means, but don’t let it discourage you from life, people, children, the poor, and the needy.
