An energetic and adorable couple who are in their 40s followed me to Thailand to worship to Elephant God to seek for wealth and career.
When we reached there, I asked them, " What would you like to ask ? What are you seeking for ? "
The husband said, " Teacher, we set up a small business but business isn't good and we are unable to retain our staff. I am really troubled so I would like to ask Elephant God what is the problem ? "
Elephant God said, " You pray to Guan Gong, the temple that is near your house. "
The husband nodded his head and said, " Yes, I do. I worship Guan Gong for his assistance so that my business can improve and flourish. "
Elephant God said, " Guan Gong has followed you too, he said that you have been very unfilial to your parents, your ancestors are punishing you therefore you would not earn money. "
The husband was shocked and asked, " In what way have I been unfilial ? We have carried out our responsibilities and duties. "
Elephant God said, " Both of you brothers, have been kicking and throwing your parents from one place to another. And now you intend to send them to an old folks home. Your ancestors are unable to fathom why you did that. Moreover, it is not as if you are unable to take care of them, how can you put them in an old folks home ? "
The husband looked at his wife and said, " You see ! It's all your fault ! I told you that we shouldn't send them to the aged home but you insisted. "
The wife replied, " We are so busy and tired. If we send them to the home there will be people to take care of them properly, but we have not sent them yet. "
Elephant God said, " The money that is meant to send them to the old folks home can be used to employ a maid. Your ancestors simply cannot understand your actions. "
The husband said, " I understand, I will discuss with my brother to employ a maid instead of sending them to the home. "
In future, your children will treat you the same way how you treat your parents. You reap what you sow, so watch the way you live your life.
