Holy Man

Word had spread throughout the countryside about a wise Holy Man who lived in a small house atop the mountain.

One man from the village decided to make the long and difficult journey to visit this Holy Man. When the villager arrived at the house, he saw an old servant inside who greeted him at the door.

“I would like to see the wise Holy Man,” said the man to the servant. The servant smiled and led him inside. In anticipation of meeting the Holy Man, the man from the village looked eagerly around the house as he followed the servant through the house.

The next thing he knew, he had been led to the back door and escorted outside. The man stopped and turned to the servant, “But I want to see the Holy Man!”

The old man replied, “You already have. Everyone you may meet in life, even if they appear plain and insignificant, see each of them as a wise Holy Man. If you do this, then whatever problem you brought here today will be solved.”

  1. Thank you Lea for sharing this. Each one of us has a divine soul that people can see…if we look for it!

  2. I’ve heard it said that each person who crosses our path has something for us and we have something for them. Even if it’s not true, it’s worth acting as if it is.

    I sometimes sit on a bus or in a public place and watch everyone passing by imagining what gifts we might have for each other. Just doing that helps me feel connected to the whole human race .. a huge gift in itself.

  3. Hi Ian

    I like your perspective. If more thought that way, then perhaps more people would smile while in public places ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you for sharing and have a great weekend ๐Ÿ˜€
