A big brother followed me to Thailand to seek Elephant God's help for his career and wealth luck. He seemed rather gentlemanly, well mannered and a person that is pursuing religious practice.
When we reached the shrine, I asked him, " What would you like to ask ? What are you seeking for ? "
The big brother asked, " Teacher, can you please check for me whether is there any chance of progress in my career ? "
Elephant God said, " You pray to many deities and you are looking after a mountain with many deities in it. "
The big brother opened his eyes wide and said, " To tell you the fact, I worship taoist gods. I bought this mountain and built several temples dedicated to these gods. Initially, I planned to use only ten percent of the land for the temples and the remainig for my business. "
Elephant God said, " Don't waste your time investing in those non-profitable business, your deities would not agree to it. All you have to do is to take care of the place and your gods. "
The big brother looked very upset, he said, " My guess was right, I thought perhaps I could come and ask if I can venture into business. I did not expect to be in the situation that Elephant God said. "
Everyone has their own things to do or their own mission to carry out. Therefore, this big brother's mission is to guard this piece of land and the deities. If the deities do not agree, there is no way he can do business because no matter how hard he tries, it will never succeed.
