A teacher and his student were sitting down under a big tree in the park adjoining the school. The student who had been pondering deeply over something, asked the teacher :

Student : “Teacher, I’m confused how can I find my soul mate ? Can you please help me?”

The teacher was silent for a few seconds, and then he answered, “Well, it’s pretty hard and easy question. To get the answer, I want you to do something. Go to the grassland there, and just walk straight ahead without looking back. On your way, try to find a beautiful grass and pick it up then give it to me. But just one. However if you dont find the one you like, you should not walk back, but must go further ahead to find the better one”.

Student : “Well, ok teacher.”
He walks straight ahead to the grass field. A few minutes later the student comes back.

Student : “I’m back….”

Teacher : “Hmm well I don’t see any beautiful grass on your hand.”

Student : “On my journey, I found few beautiful grass, but I thought that I would find a better one, so I didn’t pick it up. But I didn’t realize that I’ve reached the end of the field, and I hadn’t pick any. Because you told me not to go back, I didn’t go back. So now I dont have even a single grass with me.”

Teacher : “Now that’s what happens in real life too, when you search for a soul mate. The grass are the people around you. Beautiful Grass are the people that attract you. And the Grass Field is Time. In looking for your soul mate, once you have found someone, don’t always compare and hope that there will be a better one. By doing so, you’ll waste your lifetime in searching for the better one. And will also lose the soul mate you already have. Because remember (“Time Never Goes Back”)…. So try to accept what he or she is.”
