A gentleman, who works as an executive in a company, followed me to Thailand to seek Elephant God's help for his career and wealth luck.
When we reached the shrine, I asked him, " What would you like to ask ? What are you seeking for ? "
The man said, " Teacher, is there any possibility for me to climb to greater heights ? To have a higher position or salary ? "
Elephant God said, " Your family's deity Guan Gong said that he has helped you with all the obstacles by eliminating many of your competitors and also by helping you to gain many projects, that is why you are able to achieve this position. "
The man replied in astonishment, " Yes, we have an altar that is dedicated to deity Guan Sheng Di Jun in my house. I pray to him every day to seek promotion and good fortune, things have been very favourable for me these ten years. I thought that my achievement was due to my diligence, effort and intelligence, never did I expect that it was Guan Sheng Di Jun that helped me. "
Elephant God said, " You have far exceeded what you should have achieved. By right, you would only be an assistant manager or manager but now you are already a general manager and the salary you are getting is double of what you should have gotten. Your family's Guan Gong is panting from exhaustion already. "
The man scratched his head and said, " Oh so this is the case ! Hahahahaha.. It was Guan Gong that helped me with my career. I understand ! I will work hard and treasure what I have been given. "
Most of the time, god is beside us helping us but we do not know. We do not treasure and cherish what we have, if we do not continue our struggle and strive to move forward we will lose everthing due to our complacency.
