Who gets everything in life?

There is a beautiful story in the yogic lore.

 

A man went for a walk and accidentally walked into paradise. After the long walk, he felt a little tired and thought, “I wish I could rest somewhere.” He saw a beautiful tree, beneath which was wonderful, soft grass. So he went and slept on the grass.

 

After a few hours, he woke up well-rested. Then he thought, “Oh! I am hungry. I wish I had something to eat.” He thought of all the nice things he wanted to eat and all of them just appeared in front of him.

 

After he had the sumptuous food, the man thought, “Oh! I wish I had something to drink.” He thought of all the drinks he wanted and all of them appeared in front of him.

The man started to think,” What the hell is happening here?” I asked for food, food came. I asked for drinks, drinks came. Maybe there are ghosts around.

 

” He looked and there were ghosts. The moment he saw them, he got terrified and said, “Oh there are ghosts around here, maybe they will torture me.”

 

And the ghosts started torturing him, and he started screaming and yelling in pain. He said, “Oh these ghosts are torturing me, they are going to kill me.” And he died.

 

The problem was, he was sitting under a wishing tree or a Kalpavriksha. Whatever he asked for became a reality. A well-established human mind is referred to as a “Kalpavriksha.” In this mind, whatever you ask for becomes a reality. In life, you are also constantly sitting under a Kalpavriksha, so you need to develop the mind to a point where it becomes a Kalpavriksha, not a source of madness.

 

Do you know who gets everything in life?

 

People who tap into the powerful source of the human mind, who master their own mind and are not a slave to it :)
