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.

I love my tea, and was wondering, Kimberly, what is your favorite kind and flavor of tea?

Jiddu Krishnamurti telling a joke...

“There are three monks, who had been sitting in deep meditation for many years amidst the Himalayan snow peaks, never speaking a word, in utter silence. One morning, one of the three suddenly speaks up and says, ‘What a lovely morning this is.’ And he falls silent again. Five years of silence pass, when all at once the second monk speaks up and says, ‘But we could do with some rain.’ There is silence among them for another five years, when suddenly the third monk says, ‘Why can’t you two stop chattering?”
