When these ingredients are put into boiling water, each one reacts differently. The crunchy carrot goes limp, the egg becomes hard inside, while the coffee bean exudes its beautiful flavour and aroma into the water.
The boiling water represents the challenges of life, and the carrot, egg and coffee bean are three different types of people and their reactions to meeting those challenges.

What I share in the articleare things that I have learned from my spiritual teachers that I strive to personally apply in my life. In these days of world uncertainty and worry, these habits and disciplines are certainly worthwhile cultivating.
