Life story: Invisible abyss
There is a painter guy has long embraced the dream of leaving posterity a masterpiece. And then one day he started to work. To avoid the hustle and bustle of everyday life, he erected a 30-square-meter drawing on the rooftop of a windy high-rise building. The artist worked hard for half a year. He was so enamored of the painting that he forgot to eat and sleep. When the picture is completed, it will make his name live forever with time.
One morning, as usual, the artist continued to complete the brush strokes in front of the admiration of dozens of visitors. However, the presence of the crowd did not affect the artist. Immersed in the crazy passion, he blankly watched the fruits of his creative labor. Just like that, he slowly backed away to admire the picture without knowing that he was approaching the edge of the terrace. Of the dozens of visitors who were intrigued by the painting, only a few discovered the danger awaiting the artist: he took one step back and he would plunge into the immense void hundreds of tall. meters. However, no one has the courage to speak out knowing that a warning might startle the artist into the abyss.
A terrible silence dwells in space. Suddenly a man approached the easel. He grabbed a brush and dipped it into the color box and scribbled on the painting. A great perfection has been destroyed. The painter was angry, he roared wildly to the painting, snatching the palm tree from the other man’s hand. Not angry, the painter swung his hand to beat the man in a battle. However, dozens of people around the area rushed in, grabbed the artist and explained to him the situation. Then a silver-haired seniors came to the artist and said softly, “In our life, we are often engrossed in drawing pictures of the future. Although that picture can be very beautiful, very charming, it is the charm, fascination about the things that come often that makes us not pay attention to the dangers nearby, even right under our feet” .
So, if someone smears or damages the picture of the future that we paint so hard, please don’t be hasty. First review your own real situation. Maybe an abyss is waiting to open right under your feet.
