    Life is the COFFEE*The jobs, money and position in society are the CUPS*They are just tools to hold and contain life. The type of cup we have does not define, nor change the quality of life we live. Concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee. Enjoy your coffee and don’t always worry about the cup – it’s not the most important thing! The happiest people don’t have the best of everything.they just make the best of everything.

    The above is so true. We should be happy with what we have and not go for things which we cant have. Enjoy the simple things in life. Its in our hands to make our life worth living and enjoy life with whatever we have. That is the secret to success in life. In lifeiIf you are not happy with what you have, then keep in mind someone else is happy with a lot less than what .we have. .

    Nobody can make the whole world Happy. Learn to keep our own self Happy and remain Happy under all circumstances in life. The key to being Happy is a non-insisting mind, non-complaining mind, and a pure mind.

    An eye with dust and a heart with trust will always cry

    The biggest suspense of life is that you dont know who is praying for you and who is playing with you..

    We cant rely on everyone , so we have to understand them.If they respect you, respect them, if they disrespect still you respect them. Dot allow the actions of others to decrease your good manners, because you represent yourself not others. Those who really have concern for us may not meet us always but they think of us and our happiness. Those who really care for us they remain true at our back also. Love those whohold you when you fall from the heights

    Develop a mind which never minds
    Give an opinion which Never hursts
    Take a decision whcih never pains
    Maintain a relationship which never ends

    Make everyday as an opportunity to serve others and give others happiness and joy.
    What you give is what you will receive and sometimes what we receive is more than what we we give

    We should give to those who really appreciate us and who dont have much. Yesterday I had given Pongal and Avial to my maid. I had made more and after we both eating also balance was there. Today I asked her how was it. She was saying it was very nice, I liked the avial very much. Was saying I had it at 12.30 pm. when I was working in a tamlian house an dthat she asked who gave you so much. that person must be having a great heart for which th emaid said yes she has a big heart. I felt happy that she had it and liked it also. We always treat her as our family member and thats why she also helps me when I need her.

    I feel that both cup and coffee are equally important.We need something to sustain life.Coffee cannot stand in air.I am reminded of what my mother-in-law used to say.
    Kannadasan ,the great poet had untold vices, an addict to drinks. His poems were exemplary. After a few years the same Kannadasan realised his folly and wrote'Arthamulla Hindu matham' , a classic in itself.
    We bought all the volumes and I asked my mother-in-law also to read.
    She bluntly refused saying'one should be worthy of writing such philosophical texts.I told her not to consider the earlier life of the author and look to what he has produced.My MIL's words still are still ringing in my ears.
    "If you give the aromatic sweet payasam in a messy brass tumbler with green stains everywhere, nobody would have mind to taste the payasam, however nice it be.To enjoy the payasam, the tumbler also should be clean and neat "
    It is entirely a different issue that I argued with her and made her read the book and later she realised.
