Enjoy D Coffee
A group of ex students visited their University Professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in life.
Offering them coffee, Prof returned from kitchen with a pot of coffee in different cups: Porcelain, Glass, Crystal, some plain looking, some expensive. When all had a cup of coffee in hand, Professor said:
-If you noticed, all the expensive cups were taken up first, leaving the plain ones. It is normal for you to want only the Best. But that is also the source of your stress.
-What you really wanted was Coffee, NOT Cup, But you all still went for the Best Cups & were eyeing each other’s Cups!
-If Life Is Coffee, then Jobs, Money & Status in Society are the Cups. They are just tools to hold & contain life.
-Don’t let the Cups drive you. Enjoy D Coffee!
I had a long career in Army. I was trained to follow orders, instructions and set rules, taking those as axiomatic. That strayed me a bit from free thinking as happens with all technology users. Basically I am a free thinker always and now in search of some basic truth in my own way. ([email protected]).
