Look Inside

Chapter 1 - An Unimportant Thing

“Money is not important, right?” the young boy asked.

“Absolutely,” the Universe replied lazily. “That’s why make a lot of it. After all, which wise man or smart woman would like to spend his or her precious time and mind worrying about an unimportant thing like money, or the lack of it?”

The young boy nodded, rolled up his Spider-Man t-shirt sleeves and went to work.

The Universe got its chequebook out.

Chapter 3 - Bad Luck

“I lost my crayons…” the young boy came home crying. “They were my favourite…”

“Hahaha…” the Universe erupted in laughter.

The young boy punched the Universe in the stomach and said, “Stop laughing! This is serious business!”

“Huhuhahahaha…” the Universe bellowed.

“You are making fun of my misery?? You know how much I loved my crayons? All my important work, my homework assignments, my spaceship blueprints, everything I drew with them…”

“Hohohahahhahhaha…!” the Universe was rolling on the floor now.

“Stop it!” the young boy went on his knees beside the Universe, urging it, pleading it to take him seriously. 

The Universe was clutching its stomach as it continued to laugh, “Hohohehahaaaa…”

“Stop it…” said the young boy as a smile started to spread on his face. “I like to take my troubles seriously,” the young boy protested feebly.

“Hoohohoooo….” the Universe hollered and started tickling the young boy.

“Stop it… hehehe…” the young boy managed as it joined the Universe rolling on the floor.

On his back, in between laughs, he told his best friend, “You know, a good response is the perfect antidote for bad luck.”

They both continued laughing and tickling each other as the Universe beamed with pride.

Chapter 12 - Along The Way

“What the! I can’t believe they did this…!” the young boy exclaimed.

“Who did what?” the Universe asked. 

“They just ended my favourite TV show, with one of those open to interpretation endings. What’s this fascination with open-ended endings? Why can’t they just make it clear what happened and whether it was worth it?” the young boy asked.

“Maybe it’s not the question of a better ending, but a question of better viewing, a better point of view on your part.”

“What do you mean?”

“The end is what it is – an end. Why do you seek fulfilment, happiness, and meaning as a destination at the end of your journey? Why not look for it along the way? Why not make it the way? Then, the ending won’t matter. You’ll be happy throughout the journey.”

The young boy smiled and turned his kite towards the happy skies.
