Once upon a time a young man who had been reported killed in action came home from being a prisoner of war. His family and his buddies, and even his girlfriend, had mourned him as dead and then, more or less getting over their grief, moved on.
His sudden reappearance was disconcerting, to say the least. They had all loved him, but they had in effect written him out of their lives. And his girlfriend was engaged to marry someone else. Moreover, he didn’t seem like the boy who had gone off to war. He was thin and haggard and haunted by horrible memories.
So, what do you think he did…?? Even though it was difficult to accept for him at first, he soon realized that change is a reality and that is wise to accept it with joy and forget the past, your old life, your old memories.
Because life is the reality now, not the past, not the future, not your memories, not your desires; but now you adapt to it, and you do whatever you have to do to enjoy life. Adjusting to change, to new conditions, is indeed what intelligence is.
To remain attached to your old life, to your views, to old ways of behavior, to your beliefs and desires, is what being a fool is; because the fool cannot accept the progress of life, new moral values, and new change. The fool has not developed his capacity for greater adaptation.
So, you must ask yourself with honesty, who are you??
