Life is like a Cup of Coffee
I got this article from a directer when I graduated from the Rolfing Institute and this inspired to me a lot. For me, it is really meaningful, sweet and it has deep philosophy. I would love to share this with people who might like this, too.

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, and they helped 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 have been 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. Savour the coffee, not the cups! The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, They make the best of everything.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

How to do them is actually really simple, just imagine, you want to be like a jellyfish.
