Bad luck? Good luck?


Maybe they occur to teach us a lesson or open our eyes! There are no accidents, a warrior said ones! Everything is a lesson! Trust your life and you will see everything has a purpose. Let the pain from the accident purify your mind and body. It will burn through many obstructions.

A warrior dosen’t seek pain, but if pain comes, he uses it for it’s best use.

The story

An old man and his son worked a small farm, with only one horse to pull the plow. One day, the horse ran away.


– How terrible, “sympathized the neighbor”. What bad luck.

– Who knows whether it is bad luck or good luck, “the farmer replied”.

A week later, the horse returned from the mountains, leading five wild mares into the barn.


– What wonderful luck! “ said the neighbors”.

– Good luck? Bad luck? Who knows? “answered the old man”.


The next day, the son, trying to tame one of the horses, fell and broke his leg.

How terrible. What bad luck!

Bad luck? Good luck?

The army came to all the farms to take the young men for war, but the farmer’s son was no use to them, so he was spared.

Good? Bad?
