A pair of sisters followed me to Thailand to pay homage to Elephant God to seek for their career and wealth luck.
When we reached there, I asked them, " What would you like to ask ? What are you seeking for ? "
The sisters said, " Teacher, we are force by our parents until we are going crazy already. They are our biggest test in life."
Elephant God said, " Actually, you have spoiled your parents ! It is not their problem, the problem lies with you ! "
The sisters opened their mouth in shock, then they asked, " Is our problem ? We have been slogging every day, supported them for over ten years, bought them a house, a car an provided them with everything that they needed. They lead a very comfortable life, there is practically nothing for them to worry about at all.
Elephant God said, " Cut off their allowance, they have to learn to be independent and support themselves. They have relied on you guys too much and become useless already ! If this is not your fault then whose fault is it ? "
The sisters came to their senses and said, " Yes ! It is our mistake... we.. made them incompetent ! "
Elephant God said, " Your parents take you as their pillar of strength, which is a good thing. But they have become over dependent on you guys that they are unable to even settle the simplest problem themselves. They threaten to commit suicide when faced with the slightest problem. If it is not your fault, then whose fault is it ? "
The sisters were both speechless already...
Human's behaviour, if is well-behaved, that is because they have been displined. If it is bad, that is because they have been too pampered. If kids are over pampered, they become very arrogant. And if adults are over pampered they become overbearing.
