The Cracked Pot

A very dear friend of mine sent me an email with this message, I thought it was so good I have repeated it here.  Let me know what you think!

An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which she carried across her neck.

One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water. At the end of the long walks from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

For a full two years this went on daily, with the woman bringing home only one and a half pots of water.

Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments.  But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it could only do ha lf of what it had been made to do.

After two years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the stream. ‘I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house.’

The old woman smiled, ‘Did you notice that there are flowers on your side of the path, but not on the other pot’s side?’ ‘That’s because I have always known about your flaw, so I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you water them.’ For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table. Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house.’

Each of us has our own unique flaw. But it’s the cracks and flaws we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding. You’ve just got to take each person for what they are and look for the good in them. SO, to all of my cracked pot friends, have a great day and remember to smell the flowers on your side of the path!

Hi all, I’m Terry.

Enlightenment! What a fascinating subject; I guess I’ve spent most of my life searching for it or even just to understand what it is!

I can honestly say now that I do believe I have found it.

Although Enlightenment is not something you can discover and then you suddenly have it. Reading, researching, talking to people, trying things out, joining different religions and groups etc, all these are great things to do and it’s a real buzz when you discover a new truth and it finds it’s way to the core of your being.

About Author

Since a very early age I have been interested in anything spiritual. First of all it was spirits (ghosts), as most children are curious about these anyway. I was fascinated. So needless to say, from the age of 8 years old I have been investigating, practicing and playing with all things spiritual. Yes, I did say playing, because although I do not suggest messing around with things in the astral planes, there are still many fun things you can do and develop at the same time. More of that in my future posts. As I am now in my early 40’s, you could say I have many years experience, although I will be the first to admit that I am not an expert on any one subject. Just a life long student of learning. Have fun and if you want to contact me just click on contact me and complete the form. I will then get back to you as soon as I possibly can. Love and Peace to you all Lisa
