An Anniversary Wish
A married couple, both 60 years old,
were celebrating their 35th wedding
Anniversary. During their party, a
wizard appeared to congratulate
them and grant them each one wish.
The wife wanted to travel around the
world and poof – the wife had tickets
in her hand for a world cruise.
Next, the wizard asked the husband
what he wanted. He said, “I wish I
had a wife 30 years younger than me.”
The wizard picked up his wand and poof – the husband was 90 years old.
Unwholesome wishes sometimes come true in a most unexpected manner to the disappointment or detriment of the wisher. Beware of the mental defilements of desire and craving, aversion and delusion. They will cause you real suffering.
