A guy followed me to Thailand to seek Elephant God's help for his career. He seemed to have an unforeseen change in circumstances or experiences that have affected his life.
When we reached the shrine, I asked him, " What would you like to ask ? What are you seeking for ? "
The man said, " Teacher, I would like to ask Elephant God about my career ? "
Elephant God said, " You have been banished by god, if you do not change your ways, you will experience a lot of hardship. "
The man scratched his head and said, " I have been very contented nowadays and would not mess around already. "
Elephant God said, " It is best for you to remember my advice, you had better not play tricks or indulge in mean actions behind people's back. You are courting death if you continue to do so. "
The man replied with his eyes wide opened, " I will, I will, I will remember your advice ! Iam not playing a double sided game with them, they were the one that asked me to be the middleman to help negotiate things. "
Elephant God said, " Don't try to act smart and think that other people are fools. Those who think that people are fools are the most foolish people. You have to be honest and reliable when you come out to the society and work otherwise nobody will trust you. You will only ruin yourself if you were to play a double-sided game. "
The man nodded his head and said, " I understand. "
Smart people tend to think that they can easily fool other people without being caught. They work by targeting the vulnerabilities in human because they always think that they are cleverer than others. But like what Elephant God has said, honesty and loyalty are the most important set of values in a person because if you commit evil deeds, you will reap what you have sown.
