Foolish and Trouble

An Indian farmer’s woman had run away, so he started to look for her. Searching everywhere he reached the jungle and met a guru (holy man) who was sitting under a tree.

The farmer asked, "Have you seen my woman going this way? She has run away from home. I am terribly upset."

The guru asked, "What is her name?"

"Her name is Trouble." the farmer answered.

"Trouble!" the guru said, "You have given her a great name. All women are trouble, but only you have actually given the name. So what is your name?"

"My name is Foolish."

The guru started laughing and said: "Drop this search. Wherever you sit ‘Trouble’ will come. You don’t need to go anywhere. You being ‘Foolish’ is enough. Trouble will find you…!"
