Why do we hesitate
Even when Spirit is speaking to us so loudly?
Even when the Universe is dropping signs all around us?
When I first sat for Tea, my heart broke open. Something deep inside me lit up, and yet, it took me one whole month since that moment, to go back to Tea and sit again.
I knew then that I had to heed the call. I had to concede myself, to surrender to the flow and serve Tea.
I love the beautiful ways that Tea can teach us to go with the rhythmic flow of the Dao
To reach in deep inside us and draw out the soul that we have learnt to hide away a long time ago.
What can so often happen when we could not hear the voice of our souls is the phantom need to try, to strive, to make, and to do.
We forget we are all part of this vibrational space that is the Universe
But there is this deep yearning
A cavernous hole within us that yearns to be filled.
The soul needs to be set free
So that you can see how you are truly blessed with love and abundance already, all around you.
Thank you Katie @pause_place for your wonderful words, as always. So it is the soul that yearns to be free to grow. In your words, "The soul is vast, expansive, all pervasive. The soul is what sees the beauty in this world and also feels its suffering." I see now what I have constantly been searching for.
The soul desires to be expressed through words. I used to think that I wrote for the betterment of others, for, like many of us in our childhood, I longed to escape my surroundings, and books had provided that solace, that sanctuary, for me. I used to think reading can improve me, make me better in spirit, in being, in the way I write. As a Malaysian-born Chinese with what I know now an empathic heart, I have almost always felt rather alien from my surroundings and family. Writing and reading since then have been the most soulful gift, and I would love to use this to touch more lives, lives that are lived out just like, or similar to, mine.
But now I know, it is the soul who wants to speak through these words that I write, and the soul continues to expand through Cha Dao. Raise a bowl 🍵 if you're ready to set your soul free ✨
