I am Not Lost!


Once a man driving his car on a lonely road suspected that he had missed the path and was probably moving in a wrong direction. 

Then he saw a beggar walking along the roadside, so he stopped the car and asked the beggar, "Does this road lead to Delhi?"

The beggar said, "I don't know."
So the man asked, "Does this road lead to Agra?"

The beggar said, "I don't know."
The man, who was already irritated, became more irritated, and said to the beggar in anger, "So, you don't know much!"

The beggar smiled at him and said, "But Sir, I am not lost ...!"

Moral of the Story ....

Friends, the question is not whether we know or not, the question is whether we are lost or not. When one is lost one needs a map, one needs some knowledge, one needs a book. But when one is not lost, what is the point of carrying a book or a map?

Friends, once we become aware that we are the goal ourselves, we cannot be lost. Books and maps cannot help, because we are the truth. We have to be deciphered, because if we are wrong all the books that we carry will go wrong. All maps that we carry will indicate only the wrong.

The beggar is not lost, because he is not going to Delhi or Agra or anywhere. Wherever he reaches, that is the goal. He is not lost because he is not searching for any particular direction; he is not lost because there is no desired goal. Wherever he is, he is at peace, at home. There is no desire, no motivation.
Friends, for such a person future has disappeared and the present moment is enough....!

Enjoy this Moment Friends !
