A young man followed me to Thailand to seek Elephant God's help for his career and wealth luck. This young man seemed rather well natured and kind.
When we reached there, I asked him, " What would you like to ask ? What would you like to seek ? "
The young man asked shyly, " Teacher, my studies and career have never been smooth sailing. I would like to what is the cause of the problem ? "
Elephant God said, " You look gentle but the way you talk is very harsh and hurtful. You do not think before you talk and you tend to criticise about this and that. This is a bad habit and you must change. "
The young man gave an inconceivable reply, " In what way is my talking harsh ? I have never done that. Neither do I hurt people when I talk perhaps I do complain about certain things at times but I have never hurt anyone with my speech. "
Elephant God said, " When you see people praying, you would pass remarks saying that what is the use of praying, you won't even know whether did god help you and maybe god doesn't even exists here... You would pass such kind of remarks and comments. Do you think that things will on go smoothly for you and you expect god to help you when you have passed such disrespectful comments and offended them. "
The yound man scratched his head and said, " I said that unintentionally, I was not being black-hearted. "
Elephant God said, " When there is a ceremony going on at the temple, you would say that it is so noisy, it caused traffic jam and you do not believe in this kind of ceremony. You would even dare to go to the extend of saying such things. "
The young man replied in surprised, " I only said that once, silently in my heart and did not say it out aloud. Nobody heard it, I was merely thinking in my heart. "
Elephant God said, " The god that you criticised, you said that you are doubtful about his power, is here complaining about you now. This god, Guangze Zunwang is from the temple near your house. "
The young man had such a shock of his life and said, " Yes, the temple near our house is deity Guangze Zuwang and my father is a member of that temple. "
God is great and powerful, they know everything that you are thinking in your heart, whether they are good or bad thoughts. Therefore, please do not have negative or bad thoughts and neither should you criticise about them.
