I drank from that cup. Now, the cup could be described as half full or half empty. Is that really important ??? The cup that I drink from gives me pain and I experience suffering. What would be the right question if I have to drink from that cup ??? What I truly experience from my life, the reality of my condition is more important than my attitude towards my existence. The issue is not about optimism or pessimism. I need to focus on knowing the reality and I need to face the reality about what I experience when I drink from that cup of my life.
