    The Taste of Life

    An experienced & wise master grew tired of his apprentice complaining. One morning he sent the apprentice for some salt.

    When the apprentice returned, the master instructed the unhappy young man to put a handful of salt in a glass of water and drink it.

    "How does it taste?" the master asked.

    "Bitter," spit the apprentice.

    The master chuckled and then asked the young man to put a handful of Salt in the lake nearby.

    The two walked to the nearby lake. After the apprentice swirled his

    Handful of salt into the water, the old man said, "Now drink from the lake.."

    As the water dripped down the young man's chin, the master asked, "Now How does this taste?"

    "Fresh & Sweet" remarked the apprentice.

    "Do you taste the salt?" asked the master.

    "No," said the young man.


    At this, the master sat beside the young man who so reminded him of Himself at one time and held his hands.

    He told the young man, "The pain of life is pure salt; no more, no less.

    The amount of pain in life remains exactly the same. However, the amount of bitterness we taste depends on the container we put the pain in.

    So when you are in pain, the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of things . . .

    "Stop being a glass. Become a lake."
