GRATITUDE -:

There is a story attributed to Chuangn Tzu, the legendary Chinese Taoist Sage.
Although, as is so often the case, there are many variations of the story, in the main
it goes something like this:

There was an old man who was well regarded in his village for his wisdom.  He had
two abiding interests in life: his horses and his son, whom he loved above all else.
He and his son shared their passion for horses and together they would ride out far and wide. The happy family and the valuable horses the old man owned were seen as
the good fortune that life had lavished on him.  When neighbors congratulated the old man on his luck, he replied enigmatically, 'May be. May be not.'

One morning, one of the old man's cherished stallions escaped.  The neighbors heard the news and expressed sympathy over the ill luck of the loss of such a valuable horse, but oddly enough the old man was not distraught.  He again said: 'May be.
May be not.'  He did not seem to consider that losing the prized horse was necessarily
bad luck.  It could not be predicted that the horse would escape, and now there was nothing that could be done about it.  It just happened. The neighbors also realized that there was nothing to be done and if the old man was not feeling sad why should they?

Soon after, the stallion reappeared and with him was a beautiful mare that came from a rare breed of horse noted for their stamina.  When the neighbors heard of this,
they quickly came to admire the mare and congratulate the old man on his good fortune.  Again, the old man was not thrilled at what happened.  He again said,
'May be. Maybe not.'  He explained that it was not necessarily good luck which had brought him this beautiful mare.  It just happened, and there was no reason to get
over excited.  Puzzled the neighbors left
