Peace Be Upon you
Hi, my sisters and brothers. Here are some good old Chinese wisdom
An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on
the ends of a pole, which she carried across her neck. One of the pots had ***** in it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water.
At the end of the long walk from the stream of the house, the *****ed pot arrived only half full.
For full two years this went on daily, with the woman bringing home only one and a half pots of water.
Of course, the perfevt pot was proud of its accomplishments. But the *****ed pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and misearable that it could only half of what it had been made to do.
After two years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to that woman one day by the stream:
" I' m ashamed of myself, because this ***** in my side causes water to leave out of all the way back to your house"
the old woman smiled " Did you notice that there are flowers on your side of the path, but not on the other pot's side ?
That's because I have always know about you flaw , so I planted flower seeds on you side of the path, and every day while we walk back you water them"
" For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate my table.
Without being just the way you are , there would not be this beauty to grace the house"
Each of us has his own unique flaw
But it's the ***** and flaws we each have that make our lives togather so very intersting and rewarding. You' ve just got to take each person for what they are and look for the good in them
To all my friends, have nice and great day.
Remeber to smell flowers on
your side of the path
