There was a King with two sons. He wanted to leave all his kingdom to only one son. He tells them that whosoever reaches the faraway Kingdom first will inherit all that he has. He gives them each a pair of shoes and has only one rule.

1. The man with the SLOWEST shoes will win the race and inherit the kingdom

The two young men wander around for days trying to be the SLOWEST. They finally give up and go and talk to the wise man. The minute the wise man gives them the answer of what they should do, they start running towards the far Kingdom like all of hell is on their heels.

WHAT did the wise man tell them to do?

Nope. It's by the shoes to win or lose. It's the shoes that have to be there.

No, I crawled out of the muck and I'm not required to reenter.

We should give him a branch to hold on to---the muck is really quicksand.

People choose their own fate. I offered him a branch, he chose to serve the world, money and Self are his gods.

We haven't spoken in years.
