    A group of working adults got together to visit their University
    Lecturer. The lecturer was happy to see them. Conversation soon turned
    into complaints about stress in work and life.


    The Lecturer just smiled and went to the kitchen to get an assortment
    of cups - some porcelain, some in plastic, some in glass, some plain
    looking and some looked rather expensive and exquisite.


    The Lecturer offered his former students the cups to get drinks
    for themselves.


    When all the students had a cup in hand with water, the Lecturer spoke:
    "If you noticed, all the nice looking, expensive cups were 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 went 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."
