I’m A Fisherman In The River Of My Life

I’m A Fisherman In The River Of My Life, because I am the only who know, which fish I wanna catch !

Once upon a time was lived a man named Rosario. Rosario was the wisest man in their region, and people around the world are came to him for advice in the field of love, happiness, success.He advised them, briefly, clearly, and with a great deal of wisdom. There was even a saying, “You’re Smiling as you got Rosario’s advice.

 Rosario was an illiterate man. He came from a poor family.His whole life he was suffering. And nobody knew what was the secret of his happiness. He never charged for his advice. People have left him gifts, and he was unwillingly receive them .

One day, he was visited by an old man of 90 years. The old man was a wealthy owner of the fish market. Rosario was surprised with his visit,and he asked him “How come you seek advice from me,the old man, when you’re so old and with age comes wisdom”. The old man said, “The river of life that carried me all these years, has led me to you, in spite of my years “.

The same river that kept me alive so many years has led me to you, wise Rosario.This river is from an early age learn me how to fish a fish, and how to feed my family. But this same river is learned you how to feed the souls of all people who are hungry for happiness. I was not that lucky.

I have a daughter. She had everything in life. But she was desperate, sad, depressed.A many years ago, my daughter came to you hungry for happiness. She had a gap inside her soul, that no one could fill, and you filled it up.
For years I tried to do the same but I’m failed, and it bothered me for years, the same question How you helped her. I said to myself, before I die I will go to Rosario to tell me how he helped her. My time has come, and with that ,the question in which I need to know the answer.

Now she is very happy, she has found happiness in traveling.She is working for the famous magazine that she pays her to travel and report about that. She does not work at the company I started.

Oh, I remember those sad eyes. I told her” If you know which fish you want to catch,then you certainly know what bait you need“.

Dear friends,  we are the only ones who know how we need and how we want to live. We know what we want to do for living. Sometimes this is the opposite of what our parents want for us. Sometimes this is the opposite of what others want for us. Be believe me, the only important is what you want !!!

Grab you life in your hands, and live with full lungs your life, and you must know that You Can Do It !!!


Once in a time, I have discovered that we are, humans,we are walking universe.
That we create our own destiny. After that, nothing was the same !


  1. Ben, the giver of advice knew quite a lot about people. We may think we need advice but we should seek our own self-knowledge. Once we think deeply, we will find our direction and the way to go. Blessings, Ben. 🕊 🙂


    • Hi Robin,

      welcome to my blog 🙂
      That is so true. We are the best therapists for ourselves. The main question is are we honest enough to admit that we are wrong !? When we search our our mind without prejudice we will find all answers.

      Thank you so much for your wise comment 🙂


    • Hello Angelilie,

      Thank you so much for your comment 🙂


  2. Ben first let me tell, you are looking great in your new profile photo.
    In the story the Bait is the criteria.
    In this world also all want different Baits to get trapped.
    Good One !


    • Hello Shiva,my dear friend,

      I am glad that you like my new photo.I decided that is time to replace the old picture with new one 🙂
      I love changes a lot .

      Yes, the bait is our goal. If you want to be a hairdresser, learn to cut hear, no matter what others will tell you. Our actions must be in accordance with our wishes.If I want to catch a sea fish,I have to fish at the sea not at the river.

      Your life is your call

      Thank you so much for your kind comment 🙂


  3. people are locked in old mind set, and this beautiful post will be a key opener to many out there.

    may the doors of happiness opens widely for you dear Ben.


    • Hello my friend ,

      Yes they are. People except from others what they think is best. But only we know what is best for us,right.

      Thank you so much for your comment


    • Hi Reema,

      nice to see you here.Thank you 🙂 A lot of people spend their lives using the wrong baits.You must be brave to catch your fish with the right bait . But if you asking me it’s worth it 🙂

      Thank you


  4. Hi Ben! I, too, enjoyed your new picture! Tell u what? My only problem was, I did not know what in heaven’s name I wanted. One day I wanted black. The next day, I wanted white. Yet the very next day? I wanted grey.
    My children and friends? Didn’t know what to say! The Doctor, they claim. Bipolar the doctor declared me to be! Blessed me! Can connect in both north and south poles! hahaha!

    Now? I know what all the time I wanted. Now? I have that elusive ‘want’ of days gone by. My only want I have found: An intimate relationship with my Maker right here on these earthly grounds!

    So glad we visit each other! 🙂


    • Hello,

      I am happy you like them 🙂 I believe that is normal.Clear goal is not so clear in the beginning,not in the some mature stage.But by the time it becomes more visible for us. Life is always flakes and marmalades ,life is hard sometimes for all humans.And the biggest fight is in us and with us.

      Like fisherman in story, it is good to live only one day on the your way, on the way you want.Even one day. We will all die ,but are alive at all !? It is great to believe in something.Faith is great thing, because you are filled with love for others and for yourself and your life.

      And love is the key , love is the answer , right !

      Thank you so much for your kind comment !
      Stay blessed !
