The Value of Life

True story of a famous Taiwan Xiao Ma.

The presentation goes like this:

Before I start my presentation, I would like to ask the audience a question.
“If there anyone here who don’t like money? including the panel of judges who are here today? Please have a show of your hands.”
The answer is quite obvious that everyone love money as there is no one in the audience or panel of judges raises their hand.

I used to love money very much, to have millions and lots of it in my pocket is my dream and my life.
Money can fulfill my desire and joy, it can complete my dreams. Money also allows me to do many things possible in life.
Having money is fantastic and it is my life !!!!

I used to grow up in a poor family, even my mother would say: “even a thief would cry after entering out house.”
With family of 6 staying in a small house, most of us will have to sleep standing up in the event if there is any relatives of friends pay us a visit and that is the size of our small house.

Couple of years later, my dad manage to make a living out of his business and we moved to stay in city.
Every child have their own room and that is the very first time I can feel the power of money and been rich.
From that moment on, I had make a wish or probably a goal in life that when i grow up, I want to earn lots and lots of money!

I’m fortunate that I become a actor and join the entertain industry. I worked hard and earned lots of money.
So, the questions is, what should you do when you have so much money?

Spend it with joy!

I start buying luxury cars, branded goods, get a few high end watches, enjoying high end cuisines and started traveling for holidays.
When I rich, I changes my girlfriends all the time, I can have all types of lovers when I’m rich.
Money fulfilled all my desires and wants.

But…

money also ruin my life, it started to erode my life.
I start to join party, go pubs and karaoke. I party every night and I love the companion of huge group of friends and crowds who always pay their attention to me.
Friends had become brotherhood and our private party get upgrade to a bigger size whenever the crowds increases.

There was an incident, when I’m at this party room, there was this beautiful lady who see me from a distance and started running towards me for a hug and start screaming.
“Hi, Mark! It been a while seen we last met, I miss you so much”. But the true fact is, she was singing with me the whole last night, WTF is she doing….now?

As times goes by, every nights the party still goes on without fail and for every night,
I can’t even remember who these people are, what’s their names, where they came from and whose friends’ friend,
but there is still one thing I love. I the central of all attention. I get the joy every night.Everyone know who I m, everyone keep calling my name, all girls hug me, I have all the attention that I desired and wanted for.

However, I would always wake up with a floor of empty the wines and liquor bottles on ground.
I start asking to myself, “if these empty bottles were my so call brothers and friends, who whose help me now when I’m laying here?”

Left with nothing…

Suddenly, I feel so lonely, I’m not happy at all, what is the problem with me? Is it because I not rich enough? I do not have enough money?
Maybe it is true. I decided to explore all others opportunities to make more and more money.

The days have come for me. I have a very good and close friend of mine. He is like a brother to me. I trusted him with all my faith and investment all my funds in his business.
In the end, he scam all my money and eroded with my girlfriend.
I was left with nothing.

Couple of weeks later, Taiwan experienced one of the worst typhoon in 50 years. Huge devastation and destruction was reported through the news.
Faces if these victims exactly reflected my current situation, they were left with nothing and I was too, left with nothing… …

The moment…

At this moment, a gush of adrenaline came through. I must help them, I wanted to be with them. I want to find ways to help these people who needs help immediately.
I decided to get all my friends join in as well, but when I pick up my phone, I do not know which friend should I call, I can’t even dial a number or call a friend because I really do not know who are my friend.

I posted my idea and mission to help the victims of this disaster on my Facebook. Many of them joined the mission.
All of them were strangers to me and these are the people who are willing to offer their help.
None of those friends , or so called “brother” who party with me every night joined me in that mission.

At the disaster area…

I rolled up my sleeve and went into the disaster area, the moment you enter it, you can smell instant death and destruction everywhere.
I was thinking to myself, what m I to compare with this kind of devastation. I’m just nothing at the end of the day.

I regain my focus and start working out to help the victims.
By the end of the day, I was totally exhausted and start to lay down on the muddily ground.
I feel so relaxed and happiness inside me that I never experience before.

Thank you…

From a distant, a elderly grandmother walk towards me with a bottle of plain water.
She said “After the disaster, she was left with nothing, all she was left with is this bottle of plain water and a words of thank you”
I looked into her eyes of appreciation, from that very moment, all my loneliness, hatred and pain were all gone.

I was filled with sense of satisfaction, a kind of satisfaction that you can buy with money at the party room every night.
I thought I had lost everything but now I the sense of satisfaction where money can’t buy.
This is where the value of life mean and I cried.
I always thought that I’m there to help but in true fact, I was there to save myself and pick myself up.

It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Teach others when you have learn the lesson. Give others when you earned.
Do it with Compassion amd Wisdom.
