A long, Long time ago, When the world was young and the tiger Walked with the deer. There was a very well-off king who had four wives. One day the king fell ill and the truth dawned that his wife was soon to end. He thought of beautiful life he had led and feared being alone when he died.
The king love his fourth wife the most and adorned her with golden rings and jewelry. So he went to her and asked his forth wife. I love you the most, endowed you with the finest clothing showered gifts upon gift upon yo and taking great care of over you. Now I’m dying, Will you follow me and keep me company?
No way! she replayed and walked away without another word.
And the king also loved his third wife and was always showing her of to neighboring kingdom. However, He always feared that she would leave him or cold be taken away form him.
So the sad king went to his third wife asked her, I have loved you all my life, Now… I’m dying. Will you follow me and keep me company?
No! She replied, life is to good! When you die, I’m going to remarry.
His second wife was kind and considerate and always his trusted confidante and adviser in difficult times. So the king walked to his second wife and asked her, I have always turned to you for help and you have always been there for me. When I die, Will you follow me and keep me company?
I’m sorry, I can not help you out this time. But I will help yo with funeral and do all the arrangements.
Suddenly A voice called out the king in his sadness. I will leave with you and follow you no matter where you go.
The king looked up and there he saw his fast wife. He had always taken her for granted and never really cared about her, And now that he looked her in her eyes, She was so skinny and undernourished.
He felt ashamed. I always knew it and I should have taken much better care of you when I had a chance.
The truth is , The story is not about a king or his four wives. It’s about you and me and everyone. Because we all have four wives, our fourth wife, That’s our body. No matter how much time and effort, we lavish in making it look good, It will leave us when we die. It will be burned or buried or..
Our Third wife, That our possessions and our wealth. The thing that we own, materiel things and when we die, It will will go to others.
Our Second Wife that’s our family, our friends, The people they love us, No matter How much they have supported and love us all our lives, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave, they can’t come with us last step even If they want to Its not possible and that’s why the second wife says in the story That she will take care of the funeral and all the arrangement, but that she can not help him out this time.
Our first wife that’s our soul. She is our first time. We always had her from the beginning and That’s why we often neglect her, because she was given to us for free, and things that come for free you neglect You do not take care of them anymore.
But our soul will always be with us even when we die it will follow us. To the next step which we do not know what it is, But the soul will be with us forever. That’s why even through she was neglected in the story, The first wife screams and say king: I will follow you, No matter where you go!
