Life (Forward)

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got
together to visit their old university lecturer. Conversation soon turned
into complaints about stress in work and life. Offering his guests coffee,
the lecturer went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee
and an assortment of cups: porcelain, plastic, glass, some plain-looking
and some expensive and exquisite, telling them to help themselves to hot

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the lecturer said: "If
you noticed, all the nice-looking, expensive cups were taken up, leaving
behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is but normal for you to want
only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and
stress. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you
consciously went for the better cups and are eyeing each other's cups."

"Now, if Life is coffee, then the jobs, money and position in
society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, but the
quality of Life doesn't change. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the
cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee in it."

So please, don't let the cups drive you...enjoy the coffee.......
