"The ear that listens to the admonitions of life will rest among the wise."
An actor once approached the gates of heaven and asked for admission. "What worthy deeds have you done in
your lifetime?" the angel asked.
"Why, I portrayed the futility of materialism and the tragedies that result from dishonesty. People would
cry and become remorseful while watching my acting."
"Very well," said the angel. "You sit here at the gate, and as soon as the first person who repented as
a result of your acting will appear, you may enter."
Those who truly wish to change will seek the company of the spiritually wise who are able to teach them.
