There is an old tale about a King who wanted to see how the people in his kingdom thought and more importantly cared about others.

So, in the middle of the night he got a few of his men to place a large boulder in the middle of the main road leading in and out of the kingdom.

The villagers on seeing this big rock all moaned and proceeded to maneuver around it (especially difficult with their horse-drawn carriages).

This went on for a few weeks. Some people complained to the King who in return suggested they do something about it as it wasn’t a bother to him.

One day an old, poor, man approached the rock. He realised that this must be impeding the flow of traffic in and out of the village so be decided to move it.

He found a suitable large tree and cut it down and dragged it to the rock. He then went and found a rock large enough to act as a lever and applying physics, he (with great effort and energy) managed to get enough leverage under the rock to roll it off the road and into the bushes.

To his surprise he found a small leather bag where the rock had lain.

Inside where 10 gold coins.

This man was now very wealthy.

The King had placed it there with a note, the note stated that any man who was prepared to move this rock to make the lives of all those around him better deserved to be rewarded generously.

So what has this got to do with anything?

The moral of the story is that if we clear the path for others we will be rewarded.

But more importantly; If we clear the paths in our own minds we too will be rewarded.
