tranquility tip: tea meditation

tea meditation illustration by yumi sakugaura

love, love, love this quote by thich nhat hanh

Drink your tea slowly and reverently,
as if it is the axis
on which the world earth revolves
- slowly, evenly, without
rushing toward the future;
Live the actual moment.
Only this moment is life.

may our daily tea sipping offer moments of tranquility 
and lessons in mindfulness. 
namaste. xx

This is just so beautiful Kimberly... thank you for sharing it.

I was just reading "The Book of Tea" last night, about the way of tea and the tea ceremony... and then I wrote a post about it this morning... (scheduled for next week...) and then I read this. Fantastic. Now I must go have some tea.
