What gives you direction in life?

You know the story “The Monkey Driving the Elephant”… A monkey takes control of an elephant and shows him the way. The monkey embodies wisdom and direction which he imparts to the elephant as they journey through the jungle together. This story can serve as a metaphor for our own lives. Just like the elephant, we may feel lost or unsure of our direction at times, but we can find guidance and wisdom in unexpected places. This story is often used in Buddhism to teach the lesson that humans have the power to control their minds and emotions. It teaches us to conquer our fears and doubts and to evolve to a higher state of consciousness.
