A successful friend of mine, felt its time to shut down his factory and go to the himalayas.
He left all his material possessions, became free and left in a jiffy.
There he fasted, meditated and waited for 20 years, and once he attained a kind of un-explainable peace, returned to his native land.
Many old friends and acquaintances flocked to see the new avatar.
This man was so friendly and compassionate that he slowly started taking up others problems as his own and got back into the same old entangled situation.
Thanks to his 20 years of practice, he could realize this soon, and he smiled at himself.
He realized, he needs to to be less passionate in his compassion and then on remained as a water drop on lotus leaf.
