Your Four Wives..!

As I hear about a guru, who mesmerized the youth with his clever words, and now lies in hospital, and as I remember scenes of the billionaire wedding, I’m reminded about the story of a king with four wives.

He loved the fourth 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 third wife very much and was always showing her off to neighbouring kingdoms. However, he feared that one day she would leave him for another.

He also loved his second wife. She was his confidant and was always kind, considerate and patient with him. Whenever the King faced a problem, he could confide in her, and she would help him get through the difficult times. The King’s first 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. Although she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice of her!

One day the King fell ill and wondered, “I now have four wives with me, but when I die, I’ll be all alone.” Thus, he asked the fourth wife, “Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?” “No way!”, replied the fourth wife, and she walked away without another word. Her answer cut like a sharp knife right into his heart.

The King then asked the same to his third wife, ‘No!”, she replied. “Life is too good! When you die, I’m going to remarry!” He then asked the second wife and she said, “I’m sorry, I can’t help you out this time!” . “At the very most, I can only walk with you to your grave.” The King was devastated.

Then a voice called out: “I’ll go with you. I’ll follow you no matter where you go.” The King looked up, and there was his first wife. She was very skinny as she suffered from malnutrition and neglect. Greatly grieved, the King said, “I should have taken much better care of you when I had the chance!”

In truth, we all have four wives in our lives: Our fourth wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making it look good, it will leave us when we die. Our third wife is our possessions, status and wealth. When we die, it will all go to others. Our second 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 grave.

And our first wife is our Soul: Cultivate, strengthen and cherish it now, for it is the only part of us that will follow us to God and continue with us throughout Eternity! I wonder which wife the clever gurus, godmen and world’s billionaires are looking after on earth?
