It is rumored that one day a king summoned 3 of his ministers to consult them in all the details of his daily life, and asked each minister to take a sack of burlap and take it to the palace garden, and fill this bag for him with the various goodness of fruits and crops in it without seeking the help of anyone in this task Or ascribe it to someone else besides them.
The three ministers expressed their surprise at the king’s request, but they carried out his instructions precisely, so each one of them took a sack of sackcloth and set off for the garden.
The Prime Minister made sure to please the king; He collected all the fruits the best and the best of the crop, and he used to choose the good and the good ones until he filled the bag on his father’s reel, while the second minister was convinced that the king did not want fruits and did not need them for himself and that he would not examine them at all. Fill the bag as desired.
While the third minister did not think that the king would care about the content of the bag, so he filled it with weeds, herbs, and tree leaves.
On the next day, the king ordered that the three ministers be brought to him with the sacks that they had collected from the garden. When he met them, he ordered the soldiers to take them to prison, each one of them separately with the sack that he had for a period of 3 months and in a place far away so that no one could reach them, and to be prevented Finally, food and drink are about them.
The Prime Minister continued to eat the goodness of the fruits he collected until the end of the three months, and the second minister lived the three months in distress and helplessness, relying on only what was good from the fruits he collected, while the third minister died of starvation before the expiration of the first month.
The story has ended, but the lesson from it has not ended and will never end, and here we must ask ourselves a logical question. What kind can we be? Is it like the first minister or the second or the third? If we were assigned a similar task, how would our behavior be at that time?
The stages of life since before our birth and even after our death and our departure are multiple stages, and we are now in the garden of the world, which is one of those stages, and our ages in it range from 60 to 70 years, depending on the contraction or expansion of our souls, and therefore we have a great task accompanied by complete freedom to choose What we collect from good or even malicious deeds, let us choose a way for us to collect their fruits, types and classifications.
Although ourselves colluding with Satan sometimes However, the seed of good is implanted in us and it cannot die forever, and when the defining moment comes the one in which we move from the world to the isthmus and are imprisoned at that time in narrow graves. The King of Kings will order us to come to our account for our deeds that have been recorded in our book.
At that time we will be alone, not our money, our children, or our property, only our deeds are who will be our only gentlemen.
Very difficult moments, we will search among its corners for good here or good deeds there, hoping that they will save us from the stubbornness of fear and the depth of the situation.
The ten missionaries of paradise were lucky to a large extent when our honorable messenger – may God bless him and grant him peace – gave them the tidings of their entry into gardens under which rivers flow, but we are living with ourselves a continuous struggle and a war that rages between fear and hope.
It is better to arrive safely and gently than slapping the cheeks and splitting the pockets, for the stations of our lives have not yet stopped, and our bodies still live on inhalation and exhalation, so can we awaken from the death that accompanies us between the alleys and joins us even in our breaths?
Are my words – which I remind myself of first – heavy on souls to the point of disgust and disgust? Or will some understand that I see her out of arrogance and arrogance, as if I am a guarantor of the committee? Or will they take it with its goodness and beauty? Or is it not?
Correct your path, improve your deeds, and remember your harvest. It is only a few days.
