The way to catch a monkey is to use a box with a small
opening at the top- big enough for the monkey to slide
its hand inside. Inside the box are nuts to lure the
monkeys. The monkey will grab the nuts with its hand
and forms a fist. When the monkey tries to get its hand
out, the opening will be too small for the fist to come
out. The monkey has a choice to either let go of the
nuts in order to escape or to hang on to the nuts and
get captured. It is sad that the monkey will hold on to
the nuts and risks being caught.


The monkey was caught because of its greed. Most of us
behave like the monkey. We hold on to old things and
ideas that can no longer help us to succeed. We fear
the uncertainties the future may bring and so we refuse
to change. We are comfortable with where we are and
what we have, so we prefer to remain there. To move
forward in life we have to let go of the past and move
ahead in faith. We may even have to break traditions.
Let the dead bury the dead, just press on!

other man to die."
