Once upon a time, there lived a poor fisherman and his greedy wife  in a humble cottage near the sea. One day, he went to sea for a living. Shortly thereafter in the net there was a golden yellow fish. He thought it was strange fish, and even more surprising that the fish could talk. The fish was said that he was the son of the King of the Sea. He also said if the fisherman was let go of him then he will grant any wish.

Up the beach and see the fish he had said his goal. The fish told him to went home and he was getting a new washtub. And at home, his wife was screeched. She told the fisherman to go back and look at the fish. She told the fisherman to asked the fish a big house. After getting a big house, without a sense of satisfaction she asked again with a real palace, fine clothes, and jewelry as well.

In the meantime, a storm had blown up. The sky was black and terrible flashes of lightning lit the darkness, while the waves crashed angrily on the beach. Kneeling on the rock amidst the spray, in a low voice the fisherman began to call the little fish. And when it came, he told it his wife’s latest request. But, the fish was heard in silence, and disappeared in the waves. The fisherman was waiting but the fish never returned. Then he came home and found everything was back to normal. His wife was and  in the depths of his heart, he was glad that everything was back to normal.

Next day and every day, he went back to his fishing, but he never saw the little golden fish again.

The House with The Golden Windows


I read on http://www.kairos2.com/golden_window.htm that tells about a young boy who lived with his parents in a cottage on a hillside facing a valley. He was very happy to see the house that was in another hillside at the end of the valley every night. When the sunset is the his favorite atmosphere. The house will be sparkling like a light golden. He imagineed how nice the people who live in a house like that. He hopes his house could also be like that.

One day, the boy went bring a favorite toy and a piece of bread to the house of his dreams. Apparently there’s journey takes longer than expected. When I got there how disappointed he saw his dream house. That dream house was just a shack turned out just like his own house, smaller and more rundown. The usual window and no gold at all! The people in that house was very friendly and offered him a place to stay because it was quite late.

The next day he was very excited to go home and leave the house that let it down. He came out when the sunrise. He looked across the valley toward his own house. He was amazed at his own house blew up in golden light shining dazzling!

This story give us the lesson to do not be a person who is never satisfied with what you have. If only! If only! If only! That the characteristic of people who are never satisfied, always wanting more. Begin to appreciate with what we have. OK! 😉

The Secret of Happiness

Well, I’m not going to tell this story in detail. This story about the secret of happiness that I read on  http://bemorewithless.com/the-secret-to-happiness/. One day, a shopkeeper sent his son to learn about the secret of happiness to the wise man. Then he went to the wise man. He traveled for 40 days across the desert. Finally he came to a beautiful castle on top of the mountain where the wise man lived.

He went inside to the main room palace. He saw all the people in the palace busy with their activities until he waited for two hours to get to talk to the wise man. After they met, he said the goal for the wise man. Because the wise man is still busy, so he told him to get around the palace, to see the beauty in his castle and came back two hours later. But he was told to bring a spoon containing two drops of oil and should not let the oil spilled. Then he went around the palace. But he focused solely on the scoop. Two hours later he came back to the wise man.

The wise man asked him what the beauty that he saw in his palace. And he felt ashamed and said he did not see anything. The wise man told him to see the beauty of the palace and back again. So he went and saw all of the beauty in the palace. While back, he told all that he sawto the wise man. But he forgot the spoon that containing the oil. The wise man said “There is only one piece of advice I can give to you. The secret of happiness is to enjoy all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon”.

Well, the moral value in this story is “Do not ever forget the responsibilities and enjoy the beauty of the world that we have.”
