The Way Of Tea

I fell into a soft space, a space filled with curiosity and mystery. ⁣

I vowed here to treat my tea utensils with more care and attention.⁣

To see all my guests even more diligently, with fresh pair of eyes always, and with an open heart and mind.⁣

To have patience for the silence⁣

And gratitude for the waves of high and joy.⁣

To serve with a tranquil mind ⁣

To embody peace and stillness.⁣

To drop knowledge, the knowledge facade we all feel duty-bound to carry.⁣

Drop all that is given to you by others⁣

And see how you can embrace fully the vicissitudes of the ever-changing life.⁣

🍃 ⁣

Completion is not something to achieve. ⁣

I see it now in brief moments and I am contented.⁣

It is not something to chase after. It is not a destiny at which I need to strive to arrive.⁣

There is a sense of completion right here right there, right now.⁣
