First learn to see what is ahead of you, then start telling others what is in their unknown future…OSHO
I am reminded about a great astrologer.
The story is from ancient Greece, from the times of Socrates.
The astrologer was looking at the stars in the night, and he was going to look at the stars at a place out of the city, in the open … to see better — he had only primitive instruments.
And because he was looking towards the sky and not looking at the earth, he fell into a well, and he shouted.
An old woman living by the side, on her farm, came to rescue him, and when he was out of the well he said to the old woman, "You may not know me, but I am the greatest astrologer in the whole land.
I am the astrologer not only of the king of Greece but of the kings of many other countries.
Even very rich people stand in line to see me, but for you I will do a favor — you have saved my life.
You can come any day you want and I will read your birth chart, look into your future, into your past, and I will not charge you anything."
The old woman laughed and she said, "Forget all about it, I am not going to come, because if you cannot see that a well is ahead of you, what more future …?
First learn to see what is ahead of you, then start telling others what is in their unknown future. Don't befool me. You can befool the kings. Even if you pay me, I am not going to come. I have seen your reality."
Man has always been interested in faraway things.
