So work had created such turmoil and pain for a certain man; it was time for a break. He sought out every possible means to heal his soul and mind, because he was terribly stressed from the woes of life. He tried Auckland reiki, multiple forms of meditation, even church. He suddenly realized none of these forms of spiritual cleansing would heal him from what he was feeling. His wife thought he was silly to be going to these odds. Even his children laughed at him.
Broken and beaten, the man sat down on a bench in the park after the long, trying day. He buried his head in defeat and began to cry. At that very moment, a homeless man sat down next to him and said, “You think you’ve got it bad. Try putting on my shoes.”
Suddenly, life seemed to be much better for him.
