#Relate 001: Enjoy the Juice!
“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 juice, the professor went to the kitchen, and returned with a large pitcher of juice and an assortment of glasses porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some exquisite telling them to help themselves to the delicious juice. When all the students had a glass of juice in hand, the professors said. “If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive glasses were taken up, leaving behind the plain and the cheap ones, while it is normal for each of you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. What all of you really wanted was juice, not the glass, but you consciously went for the best glasses and were eyeing each other’s glasses… Now’ if life is juice, then the jobs, money and position in society are the glasses they are just tolls to hold and contain Life, but the quality of life doesn’t change. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the glass, we fail to enjoy the juice in It.” So, don’t let the glasses drive you… enjoy the juice instead. Life is a Gift- Get the best of it.”
