I saw her fluttering like butterfly wings in the wind.
I saw the sun rising and dipping her tips in gold.
I saw her rolling with great joy in the hands of the pickers, and then in the baskets that will transfer her into a portal of transformation.
Through different hands and temperatures and places, she rises anew, still joyful, joyful to serve, joyful to be returning to oneness with humanity.
Joyful to be in harmonious engagement with humanity's daily lives, daily thoughts, daily energetic fields.
Joyful to be Tea.
The Way of Tea is a way of living that invites us into a daily practice of un-knowing.
Tea brings the essence of the mountain to you.
The mountain of stability, that which withstands the test of time and the highs and lows that life brings.
The rivulets that carve through the body of the mountain, the pathways that go deep below into the space of alchemy and wisdom.
It is a testimony to the dignity and harmony born out of your inner strength and alignment with your True North.
Tea holds the legacy of Stillness ~ a legacy that has passed many hands, through centuries of Chan and Zen monks who have worked with Tea to sharpen the mind and move qi into the heart.
Through the poetry and art of Tea mystics and Daoist sages to allow the divine Dao to become one with them for transcendence and mastery.
Tea is truly simply being Herself. And by being, She reminds us that beauty, mastery, artistry and ceremony is lived through our own true essence － just as She stands as a bridge for heaven and earth to meet, so too does She remind us, cosmic beings having a human experience, that we are also pure Consciousness, eternal presence, and a formless life force directing the channel into creating your very own story in this dimension.
