"The Circle of 99" – Jorge Bucay
Once upon a time, there was a big king, powerful and immensely rich but also very unhappy. This sad king had a very happy servant. The servant was bubbly, smiley and he was always singing happily. The king became impatient with his happiness and asked him: – Why are you always so happy?
In few days, the tired and haggard servant serving the King when the latter asked– What’s wrong servant? Why are you not smiling and singing like before?
- Sir, I do my duty as I should. You pay me to do my job, I don’t need to give you explanations for my behavior or frame of mind – The upset servant replied.
The king laid off the servant for being insolent and understood perfectly this was how he entered the circle of 99. He stopped being happy.
99 coins are the 100% of our treasure. Nothing is missing, no one stole anything, 100 is not as round as 99 is. It’s just a trap, a carrot they swing in front of us, to make us stupid enough to keep moving tired, unhappy and compromised. A trap so that we never stop to push so that everything remains the same. Things can change only if we become able to enjoy our treasures as they are.
@beyond, great story man.
@beyond, worst post ever
@beyond, im totally joking, i really enjoyed the story!
@ilooklikeawaterbottle, you’re depending too much on entertainment. :)
I heard this story 2 years ago, but I got angry at the people who shared it. They didn’t get it. There was always something missing in their lives. Maybe I got angry because I was too much into “Into The Wild” then, and I couldn’t make them see what THEY ARE SHARING. They didn’t understand the lesson from it, continued to be needy, greedy and complaining over small things and excited over fantasies. That’s the main reason I’m sharing it now. It’s like it went through their heads and ran away.
Stupid King! wont let others live happily also… Hmpf!
