☯️ H A R M O N Y ☯️
The soul knows －
To manifest your desires
Your thoughts, words and actions must be in harmony.
To heal the Earth
The human heart needs to be healed.
To heal the human heart
Harmony with Nature and one self must be restored.
Obsessive thinking. We all do it.
How often do we actually find time to sit down and think about our life purpose, our life vision?
When you do, the minute you step into the world you get knocked off your feet by the whirlwind that is built on a concrete society.
Even though I had been meditating for a couple of years by the time I met Tea in this celebrated form
I was finding it hard to practise what I felt during meditation when I am not meditating.
The first time I met Tea, my heart broke open.
(This is a moment I often refer to as my Jaku Moment.)
It has flourished into a beautiful relationship since then
Me and Tea.
In Cha Dao,
There is a liminal body within the Tea that we share as we explore the many excursions of the Dao.
We connect to the shamans of ancient times
Who had sought answers in the elements of nature for all things that matter and mundane.
When we sit with Tea we stay with Tea
We cultivate the no-mind
The effortless effort
Going into the zone where the subject becomes the object:
For there is nothing else that really can matter when you are here living in this present moment.
Just as there is no form in emptiness and emptiness in form;
As there is darkness when there is light,
And light in darkness.
There is nowhere else to be.
Not the next destination you have to be in the next hour
Not the last thing you have done regrettably late.
When you hold yourself in your own presence
You become the light.
When you become present to yourself
You stop chasing.
You are made of what you choose to believe is true.
And so it is
In walking the Way of Tea ※ Cha Dao ※
We find harmony in the yin and yang
The beliefs and non-beliefs
The being and nonbeing
The mind and no-mind －
Your true, infinite self.
