Never stay in one place for long

Found this in the goodbye mail of a colleague leaving Yahoo! I liked the philosophy! 😉

Once when guru was travelling with his disciple, by the end of the day they arrived at a village, where they were treated with nice food, place to sleep, and overall hospitality. in the morning when they left the village, after coming out, the guru held his hands up to the sky and said – may they never live in one place for too long. may they wander the whole earth.

The next evening they reached another village where they were treated badly, like beggars and thieves and no one gave them any food to eat or shelter to sleep. as they left the village, guru again asked god to – may they always live happily in this village forever.

The disciples had somewhat accepted the last wish, but this one was too much, and one asked the reason for wishing prosperity to the second village.

Guru said – like a true sannyasi, good people should not stay too long in one place. how else will goodness spread in the world?
