7 Lessons Created By Sompong Yusoontorn From A Water Glass
A water glass can teach you many life lessons. Life is an exploration, and maybe certain lessons must be experienced to be understood. Here are 7 timeless life lessons from a water glass that we must know basically
Lesson # 1 : Free Your Glass Zen Master poured his visitor’s water glass full, and then kept on pouring. If it is overfull, no more will go in! It’s like this water glass, you are full of your own opinions and speculations. You have to firstly empty your water glass!!!
You can’t learn new things!!! You have to be willing to throw out what you already know and have a curiosity to explore new paths. If your glass is already full,
The amount of junk you have in your lives, is directly proportional to the amount of junk you have in your minds! So free your water glass. If you are full of your own ideas, there is no room for new ones!!!
Lesson # 2 : Don’t Fill Boiling Water In A Cold Glass!!! If you do - crack! You may break it. Heat expands. When a thing expands it needs more room. Anger in life is like the boiling water. By becoming more aware of how you feel when you are angry, You can take control of it before it takes control of you!!!
Next time you're confronted with an idea that makes you angry or uncomfortable, don't immediately dismiss it or attack it. Even it is Yes or No, There is something to be gained!!! Take a moment to evaluate whether it's really a bad idea, or whether it merely challenges your own preconceptions.
Lesson # 3 : Half Empty Or Half Full? Attitude is not just about your outlook on life, it is also about… Choosing what that outlook will be!!!
There are no real secrets to living a happy and fulfilling life All it takes is to have a positive attitude along with a proactive vision of what you desire in your life and then you will discover… that the secret of living a happy life is in your control!!!
Lesson # 4 : Put The Ice In First, Then Pour The Water Ice before water, because more of the liquid comes in direct contact with the surface area of the ice cubes, thus making more liquid colder faster. Also, judging exactly how much space to leave at the top for displacement can result in overflow!!!
This encourages you to put first things first by doing to the most important things in life, being clear about your priorities and acting on them. That sounds pretty easy and intuitive, but many people unconsciously fall into the trap of… Getting caught up in non-important things!!!
They neglect the larger life priorities until it becomes too late. To become a master of your time, you need to first be aware of… Your priorities in the larger context of your life!!!
Lesson # 5 : Broken Glass Of Water When a glass breaks, it breaks into many pieces and it is difficult to put it back together. So is a relationship!!!
We hope this will encourage you to keep all of your relationships in a positive manner. You can take care your water glass or relationship very well… By doing only good deed And saying only good words!!!
Lesson # 6 : Put The Glass Down!!! Your hand will begin to hurt!!! “What will happen if I hold a water glass for a few minutes?” “Nothing!!!” “If I hold it for an hour like this, what might happen?”
The problems and worries in life are like that glass of water. It’s important to remember to let go of your problems. Remember to put the glass down!!!
“I have lots of that at work, but when I come home, I remember to take it off – and leave them outside. I don’t take them home with me.” Maybe you should learn to do that too. Starting today. Remember to put the glass down and see the difference!!!
Lesson # 7 : Water, Not The Glass!!! Nor change the quality of life we live!!! Life is the water; the jobs, money and position in society are the water glasses. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, and the type of glasses we have does not define,
Be assured that the water glass itself adds no quality to the water. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted was water, not the glass, but you consciously went for the best ones, That is the source of your problems and stress!!!
Take your time in reading them. Inwardly digest them. Be challenged by them. Don’t discard them, once you have read them. Read them more than once. Seek to understand and ask yourself… What are the lessons I have just learned??? Thank You Very Much Sompong Yusoontorn
