397. Listen yo your heart

  • Sari was a very spiritual person.

    For a long time Sari had wished to go walking to the sacred city of Benares in India to bathe in the Ganges and be purified.
    Just before finally departing on his journey, he ran into the wise man of his village.
    “Why do you want to go there”? he asked Sari.
    “To be closer to God”, Sari answered.
    The wise man then said, “Give me all the money you have saved to go on this pilgrimage”.
    Sari was a little confused, but as he trusted the wise man, he gave him all his money.
    After a few days, the spiritual leader saw Sari in the street and told him:
    “I know you would have gone on this pilgrimage because of your faith in God, but I must tell you that you don´t need to purify yourself in the Ganges river.
    Take this canteen full of water and wash yourself with it”, the wise man said.
    After Sari cleansed himself with the water, the spiritual leader told Sari:
     Listen to your heart
    “You have achieved your purpose without the need of making such a long journey and spending all your money.
    Take your money and return home with the certainty that you have fullfilled your good intentions to God.
    I want you to know that God is always in the hearts of man.
    If you want to speak to God, all you have to do is seek God in your heart.
