AWESOME STORY !.................

"Once upon a time...
there was a rich King who had 4
He loved the 4th wife the most and
adorned her with rich robes and
treated her to the finest of
delicacies. He gave her nothing but the best.
He also loved the 3rd wife very much and was always showing her
off to neighboring kingdoms.
However, he feared that one day she
would leave him for another.
He also loved his 2nd wife. She was his confidante and was always kind,
considerate and patient with him.
Whenever the King faced a problem,
he could confide in her to help him get through the difficult times.
The King's 1st wife was a very loyal
partner and had made great
contributions in maintaining his
wealth and kingdom. However, he did not love the first wife and
although she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice of her.
One day, the King fell ill and he
knew his time was short.
He thought of his luxurious life and
pondered,"I now have 4 wives with
me, but when I die, I'll be all
Thus, he asked the 4th wife,"I have loved you the 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
Her answer cut like a sharp knife
right into his heart.
The sad King then asked the 3rd
wife,"I have loved you all my life.
Now that I'm dying, will you follow
me and keep me company?"
"No!"replied the 3rd wife."Life is
too good! When you die, I'm going
to remarry!"
His heart sank and turned cold.
He then asked the 2nd wife,"I have
always turned to you for help and
you've always been there for me.
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."
Her answer came like a bolt of
thunder and the King was
Then a voice called out:
"I'll leave with you and follow you
no matter where you go."The King
looked up and there was his first
wife. She was so skinny, she
suffered from malnutrition.
Greatly grieved, the King said,"I
should have taken much better care
of you when I had the chance!"
In Truth, we all have 4 wives in our
lives ...
Our 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.
Our 3rd wife is our possessions,
status and wealth. When we die, it
will all go to others.
Our 2nd wife is our family and
friends. No matter how much they
have been there for us, the furthest
they can stay by us is up to the
And our 1st wife is our Soul,
often neglected in pursuit of wealth,
power and pleasures of the ego.
However, our Soul is the only thing
that will follow us wherever we
go. !!!
