The bus that never comes...

if you do not feel grateful for what you already have, what makes you think you'd be happy with more?

One day, a bus stop was created, with bus number 42 going through the following stops:

  • Thought
  • Consciousness
  • Mind
  • Spirit
  • Heaven

As always when something new is created, people come to explore it, with their previous knowledge of how something should be looked at. Little did they know that the other 4 stops, nor the bus, exist.


On the 4th day there were about 10 people who had visited the stop, wondering what it is about and for. The record then was to stay for about 2h and then leave, after no bus came.

Two weeks after the bus stop appeared, people began asking questions on reddit & twitter. It attracted more and more attention. Some transformed it into a riddle, others thought it is part of some kind of game (although they could see no players), third ones said aliens put it there... 

Over time, it became a famous spot for meditators. More and more people would come and sit there, in stillness. It would still attract attention of random passer-byers, but not as much as before.  


After three years, one of the people who had been coming to sit there over a period of several months, had a sudden awakening. Another one followed suit a couple of weeks later. Then a third person, a fourth, a fifth - all of them found Heaven... The bus stop became one of the most enlightened places on planet Earth.

If anyone lost their way again, they would come back to the bus stop.
