I have updates coming and I’ve been busy behind the scenes reviewing my first book and writing another review for Doctor Sleep but for now, I’d like to blog this post by one of my favourite authors, Paulo Coelho called The Hermit and The King, It’s only 30 seconds of reading but how inspiring is this?
An old hermit was once invited to visit the court of the most powerful king of those times.
“I envy such a saintly man, who is content with so little,” said the ruler.
“I envy Your Majesty, who is content with even less that I,” responded the hermit.
“How can you say such a thing, if this entire country belongs to me?” – said the offended king.
“For precisely that reason. I have the music of the celestial spheres, I have the rivers and mountains of the whole world, I have the moon and the sun, because I have God in my soul. Your Majesty, on the other hand, has only this kingdom.”
