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.
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... And 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 only 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."

and Leave the Rest to God.
