Put the Glass Down

Life's so easy, life's so tough,
it's all up to you how you take it
when it's rough.

Yeah...well got a beautiful mail from a friend which i suerly wud like to share wid u it is...

A professor began his class by holding up a glass with some water in it. He held it up for all to see & asked the students, "How much do you think thisglass weighs?"

"50gms! , 100gms! , 125gms" The students answered.

"I really don't know unless I weigh it," said the professor, "but, my question is: What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?''

"Nothing" the students said.

"ok what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?" the professorasked.

"Your arm would begin to ache", said one of the students.

"You're right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?''

"Your arm could go numb, you might have severe muscle stress & paralysis &have to go to hospital for sure!" ventured another student & all the students laughed.

"Very good. But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?" asked the professor. "No, Then what caused the arm ache & the muscle stress?"

The students were puzzled.

"What should I do to remedy this?" asked the professor again.

"Put the glass down!" said one of the students.

"Exactly!" said the professor. "Life's problems are something like this.Hold it for a few minutes in your head & they seem OK. Think of them for along time & they begin to ache. Hold it even longer & they begin to paralyze you. You will not be able to do anything.It's important to think of the challenges (problems) in your life, but even more important to 'put them down' at the end of every day before you go to sleep. That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh &strong & can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way!"

So, when u go to bed tonight. Remember to 'PUT THE GLASS DOWN, TODAY!

She stood there in the cold breeze, freezing her bones but releasing her soul. She could feel herself being torn in two but still it was accompanied with a sense of freedom.

Yeah most of us are just 'Pinjar', a soul caged inside a body. The soul is dead but the body continues to live mechanically. They smile for the world because they don't want them to know that they are just walking dead bodies. It's not wrong also, why shall they make their sufferings somebody's entertainment package? But is it right to pretend? Who are they kidding?

I have a question, a question my friend asked me yesterday. To hurt yourself is a sin and to hurt others is also a sin, but if one has to make a choice between the two what shall he do? Dilemma being if he chooses to hurt himself he will be punished again for it later coz it's a sin. So why shall he suffer twice for the same thing and if he chooses to hurt others it's still unethical. Well I thought it's always best to follow live and let live principle, but doesn't that turns you in a 'pinjar'?
