” He who travels the road best is he who makes the road better for those who will follow”
Unselfishly thinking what others might experience, the statement above indeed is a wisdom we should all be taking and remembering as we travel the road of life. Remember, we are not alone here in the world, we’ve got plenty to live with, share the beauty of Earth and live the life with, thus, we really need to make a difference, not taking advantage of others, but helping them in any way. We were not created to live alone and be the master of the world, therefore, we should never possess anything here, not even a single cent, we just borrowed them, later, when the time comes, all the things we borrowed will be returned to the real owner, even the cheap rc cars you owned.
To give you a clearer insight here is the passage contained in an email forwarded by a colleague, a message to remember.
THE KING’S HIGHWAY
Once upon a time, a king had a great highway built for the people who lived in his kingdom. After it was completed, but before it was opened to the public, the king decided to have a contest. He invited as many of his subjects as desired to participate. The challenge was to see who could travel the highway the best, and the winner was to receive a box of gold.
On the day of the contest, all the people came. Some of them had fine chariots, some had fine clothing and fancy food to make the trip a luxurious journey. Some wore their sturdiest shoes and ran along the highway on their feet to show their skill. All day they traveled the highway, and each one, when he arrived at the end, complained to the king about a large pile of rocks and debris that had been left almost blocking the road at one point, and that got in their way and hindered their travel.
At the end of the day, a lone traveler crossed the finish line warily and walked over to the king. He was tired and dirty, but he addressed the king with great respect and handed him a small chest of gold. He said, “I stopped along the way to clear a pile of rocks and debris that was blocking the road. This chest of gold was under it all. Please have it returned to its rightful owner.”
The king replied, “You are the rightful owner.”
“Oh no,” said the traveler, “This is not mine. I’ve never known such money.”
“Oh yes,” said the king, “you’ve earned this gold, for you won my contest. He who travels the road best is he who makes the road better for those who will follow.”
Remember those words of wisdom as you travel the road of life!
So live your life peacefully, share your blessings with others. Be kind to all people and all those surrounding you.
