· Yūgen ·
I have held you in my hands before
and now I hold you like it is the first time.
Dust always gathers
Decay eventually sets in.
Let the sunlight burn through the silvery cobwebs of heartaches and ennui.
Your spirit shall rise
And dance along the shadows of mysterious love.
Let Tea pour into your cup
Let the waterfalls sing the song you have forgotten
So you could remember
How it is to empty out
And Let the stream flow.
See through eyes of a spotless mind
See beyond the skin and mask;
Read the blueprints of each soul who moves across the pages of our story.
Let Tea's quiet grace
Fill your heart up
And illuminate your soul.
The sun and moon are in you
So shine my loves. Shine even in your darkest hour
Because you know you are that light;
That you already and eternally walk with the Universe · the Dao · within you.
In awe of the ageless teachings of impermanence and the beauty that lies in simplicity. I still feel its evanescence impenetrable, but every day I feel as though I am also inching ever closer to the heart of it as I journey across the Dao with Tea Ceremonies that break my heart open every single time.
