The Beginning Of My Awakening


I was young student in those days.In my  early twenties.I was in rising power, sportsman. The world was mine. A friend of mine was operated , and I went to visit him in hospital.He was lying in a room with three other patients who were seriously ill.One of them was deeply engraved in my memory.

I visited a friend, I talked to him a little  and I  was preparing to go when one patient is spoke to me.The patient who was lying next to my friend.What I have immediately noticed about him is his calmness. The calmness with which he was disarmed me.

He asked me what am I studying. I said law school.He said, please be fair judge. I said, of course I will be.He continued, these are my last days, but I am more than happy.I have a wonderful family, beautiful children,lovely home, I have met many wonderful peoples here, in hospital,and what is more important of all I am aware all of that.

He told me I’d never changed with you,with your ages, because I am past what I am past, but what is waiting you on your road, it is big question.

I’m stormed out of the hospital that day, angry at that old man.Why would not he changed with me. I have youth,I have  strength,  I have  all time on this world.I have even hear.It is insulted me whit his calmness.I was defeated that day from that old man,because maybe he don’t want to change with but I would like to change with him. For that peace behind those big blue eyes .

I went home, but I could not get out that old man from my  head.I was thinking about his sentence “,I have a wonderful family, beautiful children,lovely home” , of course you have, I was thinking, I also  have wonderful family…. “and what is more important of all I am aware all of that…I am aware all of that”…..say again…”I am aware all of that”,”I am aware all of that”….

I got also youth,health,strength… Then why am I so restless. Is it possible that I don’t see that .Is it possible that I am not aware of that ….Noooo…

Yeeeeeees…this is true.In that moment I felt a great relief…Hey I am happy too. I was so burdened by things that I do not have,that I’m totally disregarded the things which I already have. This for me was the greatest discovery in my life,because this is the key of happiness.

This was the beginning of my awakening.After that moment I have became always happy.

And the old my, he died that day. Old man, if you’re reading this from somewhere, I just want to tell you thank you .

So,happiness is in us.Happiness is now and always. We are born to be happy always. Children’s are happy always .If you want to be happy you should be aware of the things that you already have. Home, family,health…you can always find a reason to be happy, and vice versa .

Look around you.Find the  things that you already have,be happy, be grateful, because I am sure You Can Do It !

    There are people who never awakens and never will. So sad!
    You are very lucky, my friend, to have found the key of happiness!

    I also would like to thank the old man you ones meet; God bless hem.
    thank you Ben, this post is one of the best reasons why should one be happy {been regretful with what we have}.

    a wealthy man lost hes sight said: {I am willing to give my hole wealth just to be able to see again}.
    so if we can just see our children, beloved ones, colors, sun shin… we should be happy and grateful.

      You are stated great example. Health is the most important thing in our life.
      So important, and somehow undervalued.We are happy,we just need to somebody tell us that.

      Thank you
