The Spirit of Tea

The final flourish of a great tree are its leaves.⁣

Imagine how much it took, what a journey it was, for these leaves to come into our teapot, and out into golden liquor that nourishes our soul.⁣

The Spirit of Tea is pure love.⁣

She never tires. Never complains.⁣

The Tea space where Cha Dao lives welcomes all.⁣

Host and guests become one...⁣

Every person washes away their forebearance and come into the space to share Tea.⁣

A chajin who comes to share Tea looks out for the abundant and beautiful and miraculous...⁣

To drop any judgement and simply receive. ⁣

What Tea I serve...⁣

What price I paid for the leaves... ⁣

What teapot I am using to serve...⁣

What ceremonial lineage it is...⁣

All of these things do no longer matter when we truly embark on the journey of Cha Dao.⁣

Listening for the joy. Looking for the kindness. ⁣

Because when the service comes from the heart...⁣

And is met with the guest's genuine openness to receive...⁣

We see each other with our heart.⁣

We treat all spaces within ourselves with love.⁣

No judging or shaming how we are not healed enough, not good enough, not broken enough, not big or small enough...⁣

We just breathe together, with love.⁣

We surrender to the non-linear. We surrender to the flow of the Universe. ⁣

When it all comes down to a tiny speck here on living Earth...⁣

Tea connects us all. She is accessible to all. She has no doctrine or dogma. Everybody can understand her language. She is kindness and hospitality. She is simply here to remind us of our cosmic magnificence, and she is also simply here to lift us up when we find ourselves downtrodden. ⁣

Soul before skill... This allows us to bow deeply to what is and always will be the wisdom keeper of the cosmos and earth. ⁣
