四个老婆

有个商人很有钱,有四个老婆,但他最喜欢第四个。他给她穿华丽的袍子,给她买许多珍奇的首饰。可以说,他对她无微不至,总是把最好的东西赏给她。

 他也非常喜欢他的第三个老婆。他为拥有她而自豪,经常在朋友面前炫耀。但他也一直担心她会和别的男人私奔。

他也喜欢他的第二个老婆。她非常的善解人意,也很有耐心,实际上她是他的知心人。他遇到困难总会去寻找她来帮忙,她也是总能帮他摆脱困境。

而他的大太太则是他的忠实的伙伴,为他的财富和事业作出了巨大的贡献,并且一直照顾着整个家。然而,商人并不爱她,尽管她深深的爱着他,因为他几乎就不会注意到她。

一天,商人病了。不久,他就知道自己很快就要死了。他想到自己豪华奢侈的一生,“有四个老婆,可一旦死去,就成了孤家寡人了1。多么孤单呀。”

所以,他问自己的四老婆,“我最爱你,把最好的衣服给你穿,对你非常的关心,现在我快要死了,你愿不愿意跟我做伴?”“没门!”这个女人说完就夺门而出。

这话象刀子一样划在他的心里。悲哀的商人又问他的三老婆,“我这一辈子这样爱你,现在我快死了,你愿跟我做伴吗?”“别想!”这妇人说。“咱俩的日子就到这啦,你死后我还准备再嫁呢!”商人的心不由得慢慢的下沉变冷了。

然后他问二老婆,“我一直向你寻求帮助,而你也一直帮我摆脱困境。现在又需要你的帮助了,要是我死了,你能不能给我做伴?”“非常遗憾,这次我不能帮你了!”“最多,我只能把你送到墓地。”这话象晴天霹雳一样把商人给打懵了。

忽然,有个声音叫道:“我给你去。不管你去哪儿,我都会跟着你。”商人一看,原来是自己的大老婆。她瘦骨嶙峋,好像是营养不良造成的。商人受到极大的触动,说,“我应该在能待你好些时好好的待你!”

实际上,在生活中我们每人都有四个老婆

第四个老婆是我们的身体。无论我们如何的劳神费财的把它打扮的漂漂亮亮的,他还是在我们死时离开我们。

 

我们的三老婆?是我们的财产地位。一旦我们死去,他们也会和别的离开我们。

我们的二老婆 是我们的家人和朋友,活着时无论他们和我们有多亲密,他们送我们最远到墓地。

我们的大老婆是我们的灵魂,我们在追求物质生活.财富和感官享受时却经常忽略它。

猜到了没?这就是唯一能永远跟随我们的。或许,我们应该现在去培养它而非等到我们快死时才去悲伤。

There was a rich merchant who had 4 wives. He loved the 4th wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treated her to delicacies. He took great care of her and gave her nothing but the best.

He also loved the 3rd wife very much. He’s very proud of her and always wanted to show off her to his friends. However, the merchant is always in great fear that she might run away with some other men.

He too, loved his 2nd wife. She is a very considerate person, always patient and in fact is the merchant’s confidante. Whenever the merchant faced some problems, he always turned to his 2nd wife and she would always help him out and tide him through difficult times.

Now, the merchant’s 1st wife is a very loyal partner and has made great contributions in maintaining his wealth and business as well as taking care of the household. However, the merchant did not love the first wife and although she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice of her.

One day, the merchant fell ill. Before long, he knew that he was going to die soon. He thought of his luxurious life and told himself, "Now I have 4 wives with me. But when I die, I’ll be alone. How lonely I’ll be!"

Thus, he asked the 4th wife, "I loved you most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?" "No way!" replied the 4th wife and she walked away without another word.

The answer cut like a sharp knife right into the merchant’s heart. The sad merchant then asked the 3rd wife, "I have loved you so much for all my life. Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?" "No!" replied the 3rd wife. "Life is so good over here! I’m going to remarry when you die!" The merchant’s heart sank and turned cold.

He then asked the 2nd wife, "I always turned to you for help and you’ve always helped me out. Now I need your help again. When I die, will you follow me and keep me company?" "I’m sorry, I can’t help you out this time!" replied the 2nd wife. "At the very most, I can only send you to your grave." The answer came like a bolt of thunder and the merchant was devastated.

Then a voice called out : "I’ll leave with you. I’ll follow you no matter where you go." The merchant looked up and there was his first wife. She was so skinny, almost like she suffered from malnutrition. Greatly grieved, the merchant said, "I should have taken much better care of you while I could have !"

Actually, we all have 4 wives in our lives

a. The 4th wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making it look good, it’ll leave us when we die.

b. Our 3rd wife ? Our possessions, status and wealth. When we die, they all go to others.

c. The 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how close they had been there for us when we’re alive, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave.

d. The 1st wife is in fact our soul, often neglected in our pursuit of material, wealth and sensual pleasure.

Guess what? It is actually the only thing that follows us wherever we go. Perhaps it’s a good idea to cultivate and strengthen it now rather than to wait until we’re on our deathbed to lament
