Sralazem’s Wisdom Scroll™
A long time ago, in a remote village, lived a spiritual man who was said to possess great healing power and wisdom. So famous was he, that people would travel from near and far to be with the sage and become his scholars. His name was Sralazem.
All day, the students would be close to him and listen to their master’s teachings. They studied hard, and they learned much about life. They would ask for guidance, and they each prayed for an answer to their final assignment: “Find the most powerful word on your path to wisdom!”
One early morning, the kind Sage went to meditate in his garden, when he came upon one of his followers. Perched on a rock, tears were rolling down the face of the disciple.
“My child”, the master asked, “why are you crying?”
The student was quick to reply “Oh Wise One, it is not sadness that has captured my heart.”
“What might it be then?” Sralazem continued, secretly already knowing his scholar’s response.
“These are tears of joy, for I have completed the assignment. I have found that secret word!”
“You have searched with success and earned a special token of KINDNESS,” said the sage.
Reaching into a jute pouch underneath his simple robe, he produced a shiny object. And he gave his student a GOLDEN necklace, made with components that represent the wisdom of the ages: a shimmering tear drop, carried by a peace dove.
“May this be a reminder of your precious accomplishment. Wear it while thinking of the secret word, for nobody can gain wisdom without KINDNESS.” With that, you shall also gain peace.
The old man fastened the glistening Tears of Joy™ around his disciple’s neck and continued:
“You will always be a child – always a student of life, with yet so much to learn.
Twenty tokens of wisdom exist and wait for you to discover them, each being a powerful tool for life. You just have received one such token. Find them all to complete your journey.
Then, become a messenger. Go home and spread KINDNESS and peace among others, for it will bless them with far greater wealth than any rich man’s chest can hold.”
And so the great Sralazem dismissed the student and commenced his meditation.
And he knew in his heart that things would be well.
