THE WISE KING

In a far away land, there was a beautiful kingdom with its unique rule. The rule said, Everyone may become the king, with all of his rights to govern the country for five years. After that he must be detained, his body will be tied and he will be thrown away to a remote island where the jungle is thick and there are plenty of wild animals and no human.

Then, one by one, people became the king. The first man said 'OK, I am ready to be the king.' And he became a king for five years. What he did in his five years was enjoying his position. He threw big parties, went to many beautiful places, married many women, collected many luxurious things and did many other things that pleased him.

That was all he did. Until one day the time came. One morning when the king woke up, suddenly the strong soldiers came to his palace and said,'We come to here under the order of the constitution. You have been a king for five years. And now the time has come when we shall seize you and take you to the remote island.'

The king wasn't very surprised of this, because he knew that the time would come. He just felt that the time passed by too fast. He had enjoyed himself in the past five years but now he had to leave all the things that had made him happy, and would undergo living in the very dangerous island. He was very scared but could do nothing and had to accept his destiny with tears in his eyes.

And when they got there, the soldiers put the dethroned king in the jungle and left him alone. They didn't know and didn't care about what would happen to him. All they heard when they left the island was just the voices of wild animals and the long scream of the former king ,and then silence again.

Back to the kingdom. The constitution was still effective. And now, there is a second king. Then the time showed that he behaved similarly as the first king. He used his time to enjoy an extravagant life, but after his five years was over, the soldiers took him to the island. He cried on the day he was thrown onto the remote island, and the voice of wild animals mixed with his scream was heard after he was left alone there.

Every other king was the same. Each one of them just copied their predecessors legacy. Laugh in the beginning, but cry in the end..

One day, a young man came and declared his wish to be a king. By the constitution he was granted his wish. He would be a king for five years before being thrown onto to the island. But if other kings would follow their passion for having fun after being inaugurated, he didn't. He realized that his time was only five years. Even if he had a happy life in the five years, his life as a king would come to an end.

So the king was always seen to be thinking. And not very long after that, he made a suprising decision. I won't make an extravagant live, but I attempt to use all of my power, even if I have to suffer, to prepare my life at the remote island.

In the first year he sent troops, veterinarians, and animals trainers to the dangerous island. The mission was to control the population of wild animals there or domesticate them for good use. Well the mission was so huge that it consumed a lot of the countrys resources. But it was the kings decision and he had calculated it, and he was ready to make sacrifices. So, all things had been used by all kings to have their fun, now it was used by the new king in this mission. He really dedicated all of his energy to the mission. The mission was successfully done.

In the second year, he sent a lot of farmers to the island to start a wide rice field there. In the third year, he built a lot of facilities on the island, from electricity to hospitals and schools. In the fourth year, he sent a lot of educated people like engineers, accountants, and many others to the island. In the fifth year, he sent his friends and his relatives to the island.

And finally the time came when the king had to be thrown onto the island. In the morning of the big day, the king smiled his widest smile ever in five years.When many strong soldiers caught and roped him, his smile grow wider. And finally he laughed a great laugh when the soldiers threw him onto the island.

Yes, how couldn't he laugh? If the previous kings found thick jungle and so many wild animals when they were being thrown away, the last king found many exciting things needed to live comfortably. All of his family were there and welcomed him. They cheered, Long live the wise king, long live the wise king!And the wise king lived happily ever after.

The story has a very good lesson for all of us. Actually everyone of us is like the king. We are given time to live in this world and do whatever we want. But after the time ends, we will be detained (by Izrail, the death angle), and being roped (with kafan) and then finally thrown away to the very dangerous place (grave, with its snakes, scorpions)

So many people are tricked by their life in the world. All they do in this world is all fun for them, and forget that the time will come when they will face a very different life. And when it happens, they are tortured and suffer forever.

But not with the clever people, they live in this world to prepare their next life in the afterworld, just like the wise king. This people will face death with a smile, because they wil livel a very good life in paradise. And the ending for these people is, they live in true happiness forever.
