A Tale Of Reincarnation

6th December



There was a monk
well, a former monk
and he was handing out free cups of tea
to passers-by
As he did he spoke of
Great Energies
and letting go of material possessions.

I took him up on his offer and we conversed
but then he asked me about my job
and I ashamedly admitted that I felt down
I work for a corporation
but he held me in a soft, serene stare
and told me:

”It’s alright
It’s alright
It’s alright
It’s alright
It’s alright”

with that, he sent me on my way to continue my life’s journey

I saw him again on Tuesday
behind the desk at Santander
he offered me a credit card

Very funny Simon, its so true that many of us desire to do something we consider to be meaningful, yet spend our lives
doing something we despise.

It suggest's modern life is crap.

Simon - haha. Life in a nutshell - we all do what we need to get by, including reinventing ourselves if necessary! Like it as an observation.
