Looking down from his cave high up on the mountain, the monk pondered life sadly. He had seen the world change in many ways yet still it remained the same. People had come to him seeking enlightenment. Then people had come to him seeking help. Finally they had come to him seeking shelter.
Every time he had advised “Move onward my child, staying still is the real danger. The storm is immense and its path of destruction will destroy any building put in its way, so move forward and enjoy the moments of safety when you find them.”
Of course, the advice he gave to others and the advice he gave to himself were different.
He looked down at the plain stretching into the distance. Even from this height he could see them roaming aimlessly, destroying plants, killing animals and polluting the water. He watched in fear, until, with a sigh he turned and went back inside his cave.
