I want to tell you this story about how I took by far, the biggest leap of faith in my life.
When I first found my awakening in a Tea Ceremony, it took me a while to take the leap. When I went back to study Cha Dao, I made what I felt to be my hugest financial investment in my own being. I know what it was like to be scouring YouTube for free materials and the online threads for complimentary bite size nuggets of information I could scupper together. But when I connected with Tea I knew and felt in my bones that this was going to transform my life. I needed to make this energy exchange to get from here to there. I was a water bearer ·chatong 茶童· and also had found so much joy in cleaning the teaware and dusting off the tea shelves. My family and friends would be so confounded whenever I told them what I did: "Oh I sit next to the kettle/I am going to help out with the big cleaning day at the tearoom!" All of these I just did and was really happy doing it. I just trusted the divine and stayed present. Something that my teacher always said stuck to mem "Cha Dao is 80% cleaning." For the first time, I tuned into my intuition and trusted Source to deliver me. If I had listened to the logical mind I would still be tethered to my desk. Last month, I again came face-to-face with another opportunity to take a big leap. When I took that leap I remember how my entire body broke out in cold sweat, and my hands were trembling as I handed over my credit card. I have no idea what the outcome would be like, or whether I could even afford paying the next installment, but I knew again, this feeling of how this was going to lead me to my next transformation in my dharma and ability to serve. Precious beings, I am saying this because there is not enough of us who are fully capable of receiving and giving to ourselves. Not enough of us are committed to something beyond our current situation. And I am committed to being that vessel for you to receive this abundance that awaits you on both ends of the bridge of the sacred and mundane. "The Zen attitude towards life is that of laughter, of living, of enjoying, of celebrating. Zen is not anti-life. It is life-affirmative. It accepts all that is." ~ Osho, This Very Body The Buddha Not knowing what the future will bring is always the truth of our existence. It is in the Dao that we can truly come to peace with this realisation, knowing that this not-knowing is in accordance with Nature. As I said before, this may not be for everyone. More joy, right now. More calm, right now. They are all here, right now. But if this speaks loudly to you, then this is my invitation to you. ⛰〰️🕊 SHUNYATA ➰ NO·THINGNESS ➰ 🌊 Alchemy of Tea ~ the two-way bridge between Heaven and Earth. 🌳 〰️ Spiritual transmissions from Tea Spirit 〰️ ⛰ Turning the ordinary into the sacred · Bringing the sacred into the ordinary moment. 🤍 Tune into the spiritual downloads of Tea Slow down.
