I reached the pinnacle of
success in the business world.
In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.
However, aside from work, I have little joy.
In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that
I am accustomed to.
At this moment, lying on the sick bed and
recalling my whole life,
I realize that all the recognition and wealth that
I took so much pride in, have paled and become
meaningless in the face of impending death.
In the darkness, I look at the green lights from
the life supporting machines and hear the
humming mechanical sounds,
I can feel the breath of God and of death drawing closer…
Now I know, when we have accumulated
sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue
other matters that are unrelated to wealth…
Should be something that is more important:
Perhaps relationships, perhaps art,
perhaps a dream from younger days …
Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn
a person into a twisted being, just like me.
God gave us the senses to let us feel
the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions
brought about by wealth.
The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me.
What I can bring is only the
memories precipitated by love.
That’s the true riches which will follow you,
accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.
Love can travel a thousand miles.
Life has no limit. Go where you want to go.
Reach the height you want to reach.
It is all in your heart and in your hands.
What is the most expensive bed in the world? –
“Sick bed” …
You can employ someone to drive the car for you,
make money for you but you cannot have someone
to bear the sickness for you.
Material things lost can be found.
But there is one thing that can never be
found when it is lost – “Life”.
When a person goes into the operating room,
he will realize that there is one book that he has
yet to finish reading – “Book of Healthy Life”.
Whichever stage in life we are at right now,
with time, we will face the day when the
curtain comes down.
Treasure Love for your family,
love for your spouse, love for your friends…
Treat yourself well. Cherish others.
