THE CONTAINER AND THE CONTAINED


                                                                          





THE CONTAINED AND THE CONTAINER 


If this world Gives you a choice between Giver and the receiver ,then better is to be a Giver . So many hands are in wait . There is an enormous mismatch in the world between the Givers and the Receivers .

Oceans of receivers crowding along a few Islands formed by Givers . Imagine the World that had everybody as Giver. And the giver knows the profoundly satisfying bliss of sharing and parting with what is more than needed .
Why allow People with hands stretched out and Palms open to live and then leave this world in desperation ? Will we be able to transport anything to the other world ( if it exists ) at the time of saying goodbye to this world ?
So where you are ? A Giver or a receiver ! A Container or the contained commodity !

Jee chaahe to sheesha ban ja, jee chahe paimaana ban ja
Sheesha paimaana kyaa bananaa, mai ban ja maikhaana ban ja.

( Hazrat Baba Zaheen Shah Tajji )


My english rendering would be ....


Should desire to become , 
Then grow to be the Glass container or the Measuring Cup.
Why turn out to be The Glass Container or the Measuring cup ?
Why Become these containers ? 
Why not turn into the Contained, 
The wine and the Tavern.
