Work & Stress

Standard

Sometimes we get caught up in the problems of life so much that we really lose perspective of what we are really trying to solve.

The best analogy would be by looking at an assortment of cups – some porcelain, some in plastic, some in glass, some plain looking and some looked rather expensive and exquisite.

If each one of us is given randomly a cup with water, at some point all the nice looking, expensive cups would be taken up,  leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal that you only want the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. What all you wanted was water, not the cup, but we unconsciously go for the better cups.

Just like in life, if Life is 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 doesn’t change. If we only concentrate on the cup, we won’t have time to enjoy/taste the water in it.
