Every one has a story or two to tell.
Once there was a young man who had a taste for antiques especially Tea cups. He felt that they had their own stories to tell. He travelled all around the globe to fulfill his passion.
Once in Turkey he saw a beautiful tea cup with Turkish influences. When he was examining it the tea cup spoke to him. The cup said," I am not just a tea cup. There was a time when I did not know what service means.I have witnessed wars come and go. One day a master came and took me to his house where he used to pound me on the table. He rolled, put me on a spinning wheel and did all kinds of experiments with me. I kept yelling "stop it". He always kept replying, "not yet". Then he put me in an oven which was very hot. I thought I could never escape. I tried to hold back my tears but tears came out in the form of sweat.
After two hours the master came back and put me in front of the mirror. I couldn't believe it. It was not me. My master then said that what he did was for the better of myself. He said that when he saw me for the first time lying on the ground he knew that he could make me better."
The young man felt tears coming out of the tea cup. He bought the cup and learnt a beautiful lesson that whatever happens to us is for the good. God knows what he is doing for us. From that day onwards he used the Tea Cup only when he made offerings to God.
