There was a depressed young man sitting in a corner of a café. An elderly man noticed him and approached him, “Young man, it seems you ran into some troubles in life, if you are willing, I would like to help you out”.

The young man glanced at the elderly man, aloof, and answered, “No Sir, I have too many troubles, you won’t be able to help.” The elderly man replied, “I will help you through all your problems if you believe in me. I want to bring you to a place. Would you like to come with me?”

The young man agreed. The elderly man drove him to the suburbs. When they got out of the car, the elderly man pointed to a row of tombstones and said, “Young man, you see, only these people have no problems. My child was unable to handle the ups and downs in life, so he took his own life.” The young man stopped frowning and began telling the elderly man his troubles.

Throughout our lives, we are constantly faced with problems, but we will also find solutions to them as they appear. Life is a process. As long as we are alive, the troubles are never-ending. Only with wisdom will we be able to resolve our problems and attain happiness. We must understand the Law of Cause and Effect. We suffer because we did not cultivate well in our past lives. Blessings are a result of the accumulation of blessings and virtues in our past lives. There is no need to be jealous of others.
