Wisdom From Humor 88

The Three Wishes
A man walking along a beach came upon a lamp. He picked
it up and rubbed it. A genie shot out and granted him three
The man first wished for a million dollars and a million
dollars appeared near him.
Then he wished for a Ferrari and a Ferrari appeared behind.
“As for my last wish,” the man said, “I’d like to be irresistible to women.”
POOF! The man turned into a box of chocolates.
Not all your wishes turn out as you expect. Be prepared for disappointment. It is a fact of life that sometimes
* one gets what one does not want
* one does not get what one wants
* things or people one loves get separated away
* one encounters things or people one does not like.
Reflecting on the way things really are, let us cultivate the mind to have peace and equanimity in the face of changing fortunes.
