A king ordered his minister to visit the mental hospital and inquire after the health of patients.
Minister went to the hospital, in the corner of the ward he noticed a man quite reasonable to talk about.
He went there and asked him how he was. The man smiled gently and put the counter question.
He asked, when do we take the pleasure of our sleep?
The minister took it as a piece of cake and replied,
When we get up.
The insane said, how do we take the pleasure when it is gone?
The minister got bewildered and took another attempt, said,
We take the pleasure of our sleep before we sleep.
The insane again put another query,
How do we take the pleasure of the thing when it is not happening?
the minister took a deep breath and left another arrow, said,
We take the pleasure of our sleep when we asleep.
The insane said,
How do we take pleasure when we are not conscious?
The minister was taken aback. He didn’t get the solution except leaving quietly.
As there is no disease without a cure, so as the question. There is no question without an answer.
We think about only what is possible. We cannot even have the iota of thinking about impossible.
What do you think!!!
