Source of stress

There is always complaints about stress in work and life. A senior lecturer explains this way to come out of stress. 

A group of people met this lecturer. The lecturer offered coffee to them. 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 coffee.

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 friends, don't let the cups drive you...enjoy the coffee instead..

Every day we are advising our children on the need to give respect to elders.

When a father/ mother finds an article in a magazine or  seeing a video immediately he/ she calls their children asking them to read or listern and follow. But unfortunately they forget it is meant for them also.

What we practise, our children will follow.

Reflection can not be seen in boiling water;
Truth can not be seen in a state of anger;

Getting anger will only spoil the situation further;
Try to tolerate, adjust, if required sacrifice;

விட்டுக் கொடுப்பவர்கள், 
கெட்டுப்போவதில்லை !
விட்டுக்கொடுப்பதில்லை !!
