Does this make sense?

Have you heard this story before?

If you have coffee in your cup and someone comes along and shakes you, you spill coffee everywhere.

Why is that?

– Because someone bumped into me!

Wrong answer.

Because you had coffee in your cup.

Had it been tea, you would have spilled tea

*whatever is inside the cup, is what will spill out

Similarly when life shakes you, whatever is inside you will spill out.

So the question you need to ask yourself is – What is inside my cup?

Are you filling yourself with love, joy, kindness

Or Anger and bitterness?


Does this analogy make sense to you?

It does not make any sense whatsoever to me.

I mean I get the message, be good and kind.

But the analogy isn’t correct.

When life shakes you it’s not as simple as shaking a cup of coffee. When life shakes you, when bad things happen, it’s like an avalanche of emotions.

All emotions get stirred up.

(It’s like samudra manthan if you know that story….)

And no matter how much you fill yourself with happiness and joy, when bad things happen negative emotions are the MOST logical reaction of any human being.

And overcoming stressful situations, heartbreaks takes nothing but effort.

You need effort to get back up, some days even getting out of the bed needs courage.

It’s not rainbows and sunshine all the time.

But you also need to remember,

this too shall pass

and you will be okay
