Water or Tonic

Let's say that you are parched with thirst,
and there is water and tonic in front of you. Which will you drink?
Of course, people say that tonic is good for the body.
You also know that tonic is good for the body.
However, since you are parched, what you need now is just the water.

In our unstable lives, rather than following our will,
we occasionally follow a path that we don't want to take because of surrounding conditions.
If we cannot become the master of ourselves and follow our own will,
then like the example above, we may not be able to resolve life's thirst.
