[teladan] Coffee OR Cups - Facts of Life


The happiest people in the world are not those who
have no problems, but those who learn to live with
things that are less than perfect.'

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

When all the students had a cup of coffee, the professor said:
'If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up,
leaving behind the simple and cheap ones. While it is normal for
you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your
problems and stress. Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality
to the coffee. In most cases, it is just more expensive and in
some cases even hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted
was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups...
Then you began eyeing each other's cups.

Now consider this:
Life is the coffee; the jobs, money and position in society are the
cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, and the type of
cup we have does not define, nor change the quality of Life we live.
Sometimes, by concentrating on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee
God has provided us. Enjoy your coffee!.'

The happiest people don't have the best of everything..
They just make the best of everything.'

1. Live simply.
2. Love generously.
3. Care deeply.
4. Speak kindly.
5. Leave the rest to God.

You are the miracle;
Your life either shines a light OR casts a shadow!
Shine a light & Enjoy the Coffee...
