The Broken Goblet is YOU

Love, love, love this little story a friend shared with me. Tell me what you think about it…

“You see this goblet?” asks the meditation master. “For me this glass is already broken. I enjoy it; I drink out of it. It holds my water admirably, sometimes even reflecting the sun in beautiful patterns. If I should tap it, it has a lovely ring to it. But when I put this glass on the shelf and the wind knocks it over or my elbow brushes it off the table and it falls to the ground and shatters, I say, ‘Of course.’ When I understand that the glass is already broken, every moment with it is precious.”

All of us are that (soon to break) glass. We know Death is inevitable. It is coming and while we may not be able to stop it, what we can do is use that knowledge to our advantage. We’ve talked many times about how we can’t live in the past or the future, only the present. THIS MOMENT is all we have – cherish it. Be present. Enjoy your time here. Share your life with your loved ones and savor every drop of it. LIVE NOW. That’s the path to building a life worth living.
