A water well is an excavation or structure created in the ground by digging or drilling to access groundwater in underground aquifers. That is the description of the “water well”. We will bail the water out as needed (could be every day) and the water well will be refilled again. Uniquely even we did not bail the water out for days, the water level will maintain at the certain level.
We like a water well and our knowledge and what we owned like a water. The more we are giving out to society, we will be filled up with a new things within us. In contrary we will always remain old and nothing new.
Our life could also like an empty cup. When we acquire knowledge, heard news, learning new skills equals we are filling up a water into our cup. If we keep on filling up the water, at one point our cup will full of water. If we never empty a cup, the water will flow everywhere and create a mess; we will not able to learn. We need to learn that we need to unlearn by being humble and kind to others like empty-ing a cup so that we could fill again with a water.
“A skill of rice” is one of natural behaviour which good as a guidance in our life. Rice during young age is empty, rice will face up; but when it starts fill up with rice, it will slowly face down according to the weight. Similar to ourselves, the more we are knowledgable the more humble we should be and more calm. Another scenario is like a dust bin, when the dust bin empty and we hit it, we would be able to hear louder sound compared than when it full. So when we should listen more and more although we already know it.
