Stop Being A Glass

Stop Being A Glass :

Once an unhappy young man came to an old master and told him he had a very sad life and asked for a solution. The old Master instructed the unhappy young man to put a handful of salt into a glass of water and then drink it.

“How does it taste?” The Master asked.

“Terrible.” spat the apprentice.

The Master chuckled and then asked the young man to take another handful of salt and put it in the lake. When the apprentice swirled his handful of salt into the lake,

The old man said, “Now drink from the lake.”

As the water dripped down the young man’s chin, the Master asked, “How does it taste?”

“Good!” remarked the apprentice.

“Do you taste the salt?” asked the Master.

“No.” said the young man.

The Master sat beside this troubled young man, took his hands, and said, “The pain of life is pure salt; no more no less. The amount of pain in life remains the same, exactly the same. But the amount we taste the pain depends on the container we put it into. So when you are in pain, the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of things. Stop being a glass. Become a lake.”
