A fair, dainty and soft spoken lady followed me to Thailand to seek Four Face Buddha's help. She has a pleasant personality that makes you feel comfortable.
When we reached Erawan Shrine, I asked her, " What would you like to ask ? What are you seeking for ? "
The lady said, " Teacher, I would to like to know how should I lead my life in future ? My outlook seems bleak, my heart is heavy and I am exhausted with my life. "
Four Face Buddha said, " You are broken-hearted ! You just broke off with your boyfriend. "
The lady nodded her head as she tried to fight back her tears, " Yes, just broke off and I have not gotten over it yet. "
Four Face Buddha said, " Your family's Guan Ying is here and she said that your famiy worships her. "
The lady started crying out loudly, she kept nodding her head and said, " Yes, my family worships Guan Ying, that is absolutely right. "
Four Face Buddha said, " Your family's Guan Ying said that you just broke off with this guy who is a married man and you are also a married person with family too. "
The lady nodded her head and said, " Yes, he has a family and I am married and have a family. "
Four Face Buddha said, " Your Guan Ying is very worried about your marriage that is why she made both of you break off. She hopes that both of you will take good care of your family because she doesn't hope and want the two of you the families to be destroyed that is the purpose of her breaking up your relationship. "
The lady nodded her head and said, " I understand, I have been thinking of breaking off too but just that I couldn't bear it that is why I dragged on until only recently. "
Four Face Buddha said, " Look after your family properly. You married at a young age so perhaps you are not mentally settled. But since you have a family with kids, you should take care of your family. This is what your family's Guan Ying hope that you will do. "
The lady said, " Ok, I know, I will take care of my family. "
When we pray, we usually make wishes that life will be favourable and smooth sailing. God hears our prayer and answers our calls. In life, there are ups and downs but with god's blessing and protection we hope that we would be able to overcome our problems and live a blissful life. But of course, we have to play our part in order to achieve the desired outcome, this is then what god is truly hoping for.
