Is there really a long and winding road?

We are educated to believe that at the end of the road, somewhere there is a great prize waiting for you. Where we will reach this amazing point in our lives, after an enormous climb of the mountain we will discover the gold. What if all this is wrong? A lie……….! How about if we don’t have to do any of that, how about if everything is available. Could we consider this? There would be no need for disappointment as we would be expecting nothing. This story has travelled the world around and reminds us of our foolishness. Not so much to search for the truth, but to search in the wrong place.



There was once a poor, G-d fearing Jew who lived in the city of Prague. One night he dreamt that he should journey to Vienna. There, at the base of a bridge leading to the King's palace, he would find a buried treasure. Night after night the dream recurred until, leaving his family behind, he traveled to Vienna to claim his fortune. The bridge, however, was heavily guarded. The watchful eyes of the King's soldiers afforded little opportunity to retrieve the treasure. Every day the poor Jew spent hours pacing back and forth across the bridge waiting for his chance. After two weeks time one of the guards grabbed him by the lapels of his coat and demanded gruffly, "Jew! What are you plotting? Why do you keep returning to this place day after, day?" Frustrated and anxious, he blurted out the story of his dream. When he finished, the soldier, who had been containing his mirth, broke into uncontrollable laughter. The poor Jew looked on in astonishment, not knowing what to make of the man's attitude. Finally, the King's guard caught his breath. He stopped laughing long enough to say, "What a foolish Jew you are believing in dreams. Why, if I let my life be guided by visions, I would be well on my way to the city of Prague. For just last night I dreamt that a poor Jew in that city has, buried in his cellar, a treasure which awaits discovery."

The way the magician fools us in to believing the illusion is by diverting our attention, anyone for the yellow brick road?
