But the Zen master said, “We shall see.”
Some months later as the young boy rode up the hill, he fell down and broke his leg. All the villagers said, “That’s terrible.”
“We shall see,” smiled the Zen master.
A few years later all the young men in the village had to go to war. But because the young boy had bent his leg, he couldn’t go. All the villagers said, “This fellow is lucky.”
“We shall see,” replied the Zen master.
Life is always full of ups and downs. We should not feel depressed when things are not going our way. Instead we should motivate ourselves to overcome the hurdle and enjoy life.
When all’s well with the world, we should not be overjoyed. Every thing is temporary, life is always changing.
Look at the whole picture, never at parts of our life. And we should not be involved with each event. Take each incident as it happens and don’t attach too much importance to the outcome.
Life doesn’t always turn out exactly how you plan it. Sometimes it turns out better.
