"Good Coffee"

A group of alumni, 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 in hand, the professor said: "If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain 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... 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."

God brews the coffee, not the cups.......... Enjoy your coffee!

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

اسب کشاورز

روزي اسب كشاورزي داخل چاه افتاد . حيوان بيچاره ساعت ها به طور ترحم انگيزي ناله مي كرد
بالاخره كشاورز فكري به ذهنش رسيد . او پيش خود فكر كرد كه اسب خيلي پير شده و چاه هم در هر صورت بايد پر شود . او همسايه ها را صدا زد و از آنها درخواست كمك كرد . آن ها با بيل در چاه سنگ و گل ريختند
اسب ابتدا كمي ناله كرد ، اما پس از مدتي ساكت شد و اين سكوت او به شدت همه را متعجب كرد . آنها باز هم روي او گل ريختند . كشاورز نگاهي به داخل چاه انداخت و ناگهان صحنه اي ديد كه او را به شدت متحير كردبا هر تكه گل كه روي سر اسب ريخته مي شد اسب تكاني به خود مي داد ، گل را پا يين مي ريخت و يك قدم بالا مي آمد همين طور كه روي او گل مي ريختند ناگهان اسب به لبه چاه رسيد و بيرون آمد
زندگي در حال ريختن گل و لاي برروي شماست . تنها راه رهايي اين است كه آنها را كنار بزنيد و يك قدم بالا بياييد. هريك از مشكلات ما به منزله سنگي است كه مي توانيم از آن به عنوان پله اي براي بالا آمدن استفاده كنيم با اين روش مي توانيم از درون عميقترين چاه ها بيرون بياييم

شاد وپیروز وسربلند باشید
