“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.” Thich Nhat Hanh Does your life feel like a race to the finish line?

It seems everywhere you go, at the bank, at work people barking at you wanting more and more, when you are home there just isn’t enough time because the agenda is full.

There are so many companies trying to get more done with less. The stress piles up inside you.

It’s enough to take your breath away and leave you wondering how you got here.

It seems like yesterday so much of your life was in order.

The black box syndrome is everywhere.

It is the darkness created by shutting down your senses of feeling and emotion so the work can get done.

It leaves you with the awareness you are in a place with no way out.

There does not seem to be a path to take you to happiness, less stress and fulfillment that is missing.

Drink your tea slowly, but first bring your awareness to your heart and open a quiet place there.

Once you have opened a quiet place in your heart take the time to enjoy your tea. There actually is only a rush in the mind of the beholder.

We have made up a system that has as an operating premise, that speed is good and multi-tasking can help.

Drink your tea slowly, in the darkness at first because that is the way it is.

Then bring your awareness to the quiet place in your heart where you hold love, joy and acceptance. Let the steps forward unfold, as they will.

This is who you are.
