Be content...Be happy...

When a group of working adults visited their University lecturer, they started complaining about stress in work and life.After listening to all these things, the Lecturer served them with water in a different assortment of cups - porcelain, plastic, glass and some rather expensive/exquisite ones. After they picked up one for each of them, the Lecturer observed that cheap / plastic cups are left out.He said: "Your problems and stress are due to your thirst for the best things in the world for yourselves. Even though you needed only water, not the cup, you had gone for the better cups unconsciously.If you consider Life as water, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold/maintain Life, but the quality of Life does not change. If we only concentrate on the cup, we won't have time to enjoy/taste the water in it."
