What is the difference between "Potential" and "Reality" ???

A kid comes home from school with a writing assignment. He asks his Dad for help. "Dad, what is the difference between "potential and reality"? His Dad, looks up , thoughtfully , and then says:"Go ask your mother if she would sleep with Robert Redford for a million dollars. Then, go ask your sister if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for the same money. Then, come back to me and tell me what you've learned, please!"

The kid is puzzled but does as he was told. He starts:" Mom, would you sleep with Robert Redford for a million bucks?" His mother looks at him and answers:" Yes honey, but don't tell your father please!"

He goes to his sister and asks:" Sis, would you sleep with Brad Pitt for a million bucks?" His sis looks at him and says:" OMFG! Definately!!" The kid, goes back to his Dad and says:" Dad, I have understood the difference!" He continues:" Potentially, we are sitting on 2 million dollars but in "reality", we are living with 2 sluts !!!"

    great question madhavi:) yOU know though these words sound synonimous but still there lies a "deep" difference !! Happiness can be found of things which may not even be beneficial to our spiritual or psychological aspect like we may go out & have our favourite dish & clothes etc., we would feel happy. But satisfaction comes from a kind of achievent, if we get good grades in studies we would get a positive feeling that says "hard word paid off" now thats more beneficial isn't it ;p[ Now peace.... I think it depends on what attitude we adopt towads the "activities" we do for "happiness" or either "satisfaction", peace actually exist in our self, it just has to be found by us. A person of ignorance might feel peace while a hard worker could be strresed. It can be even oposite to that . So peace needs to found by us.
