Teacup

One time a man was trying to drink tea. Every time he picked up a teacup to drink, the cup broke in his hands. He became increasingly frustrated until he realized that he needed to be delicate with the precious cups. The cups were not going to change for him, he had to adjust to the cups. When he realized this, he was able to drink the tea without breaking the cup he was using. Remember to adjust to your environment and do not expect the environment to adjust to you. That is how one lives in harmony within the Tao.
