About life and living it right

Posted at this site (and many others I’m sure):

“A group of working adults got together to visit their University lecturer. The lecturer was happy to see them.

Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life. The Lecturer just smiled and went to the kitchen to get an assortment of cups – some porcelain, some in plastic, some in glass, some plain looking and some looked rather expensive and exquisite.

He offered his former students the cups to get drinks for themselves. When all the students had a cup in hand with water, he spoke: “If you noticed, all the nice looking, expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones.

While it is normal that you only want the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. What all you wanted was water, not the cup, but we unconsciously went for the better cups.”

“Just like in life, if Life is Water, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and maintain Life, but the quality of Life doesn’t change.” “If we only concentrate on the cup, we won’t have time to enjoy the water in it.”

  1. Thanks Greg for your Comments.
    I believe it and even i follow it.
    I probably attribute this to the unsatisfied nature of human beings.(Including Me, lol). Humans are not content so easily. They always want to go the next level, when they have attained a particular level.
    The Outlook towards LIFE has to change.
    That’s what i feel personally.
    Thanks again.
