Sharing : The sources of our PROBLEMS.

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 in looking and some looked rather expensive and exquisite.The lecturer offered his former students the cups to get drinks for themselves.

When all the students had a cup in hand with water, the lecturer spoke: “if you noticed, all the nice looking, expensive cups were taken up, leaving the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal that you only want the best for yourselves, that is the sources of your problems and stress.”

“What all of you wanted was water, not the cup, but we unconsciously went for the better cups.”

"That’s the same with life. Life is like the water. Jobs, money and position in society are the cups – they are just tools to hold/maintain life but the quality of life doesn’t change."

“If we only concentrate on the cup, we won’t have time to enjoy, taste and appreciate the water in it.”
