The Wisdom of Tea
My mentor, said her mentor taught her, that the most powerful thing one person can do for another is drink tea and unconditionally, and without agenda, LISTEN.
I drink my tea daily. And I listen. When no one is there, I listen to my deepest self. Without judgment, and without agenda to change the incoming information, to fully love and accept the information. The best information comes from listening to that still voice.
Another friend, a cancer survivor, takes 30 minutes every evening, sipping tea, and sitting with her dog outside - listens to the breeze. She says wisdom comes in when we are still and listen to the subtle breezes. Voices of our ancestors and helpers can be heard.
I am brewing my tea for today. Today, it is Yogi tea, Lemon Ginger (my body requests some tummy soothing herbs). On the tag are little sayings...I thought I would leave this one with you:
Todays Tea Wisdom:
DELIGHT the world with kindness, grace, and compassion.
Can you let these qualities flow today without inhibitions and doubt? Powerful stuff.
Love to you all,
