Ancient Proverb

Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. We are more than the sum of our knowledge, we are the products of our imagination.

  1. This morning I woke up earlier than usual and a Yahoo chat friend greeted me with a Good Morning. She then asked me how was my day so far for the Saturday.

    I told her I cooked some rice porridge last night and I have just checked it is ready.

    Then she asked WHAT I added to the porridge

    I said: ” you didnt read my line, I said rice porridge and I didnt mention I added anything”

    Then she said she likes to add mnay many stuff to make the porridge taste better.

    THEN this came to my mind ” We live a life peacefully but some people try to add in many distracts, to make it better, but do or did all these additives made our LIFE better? or it is just stopping us from living a plain but peaceful life???”

    Quoting the conversation on yahoo messenger without any edition : (except name of the chatter friend replaced with xxx of which I also copied her this email)

    xxx: how was ur day so far
    driftermkm: last night started the cooker to cook rice porridge I just checked it is ready

    xxx: : u can put whatever u like in porridge

    driftermkm: no you didnt read I said cook rice porridge I didnt say I add anithing
    xxx: u like it plain
    xxx: i like to add lot of stuffs when i eat it
    driftermkm: so you like the porridge or the additives ? in fact
    xxx: taste better with more stuffs
    driftermkm: that is true to your life too
    driftermkm: you live a life peacefully and you try to add it too many distracts then you like the other matters more than your life without the true taste of your life
