A Cup of Tea Slows the World Down

We never see anyone who rushes with a cup of hot tea.

A cup of tea allows you to pause for a moment.
When you want to enjoy some tea, not for your thirsty throat, you won’t have a huge bottle, walking and drinking. You will firstly slow down, sit around the table and let your body quiet down and breathe. Tea appreciation starts from the peacefulness of your body and mind.
If someone says to another: come for some tea, this is a type of a generous greeting.

A cup of tea creates a beautiful space for your heart.
There is a type of tea called Japanese samurai tea. When opponents meet, they garden and go into the tearoom through a garden without their Knives. They sit down face-to-face with a cup of tea between them. The whole world is getting quiet. The noises from the battlefield are fading away. What only exists in the whole world is the desire for the cup of tea. In Japan, the tea rooms are normally quite small. The samurais enter and sit down, the distance between the bodies is, the interval between several cups of tea. The environment forces them to almost touch their knees. The static body being so close to each other is very meaningful. People think that the soul will be in the heart of this close distance, and everyone’s beautiful realm of others can be achieved in drinking tea.

A cup of tea plants lotus flowers in your heart
Enjoying tea at this very moment is so important. Without sitting down together, no one would be able to understand the beauty of this. Buddha is enlightened in the lotus flower. Our hearts get peaceful with a cup of tea.
We all need to pause for a moment to review the peacefulness, kindness. Once we sit down with tea, the worries, anxiety and negativity will be cut off. Let alone that the secret of tea appreciation is to slow down.

We all are living in this noisy world where our lives are way too fast. When you are trying to find a way to relax and distress, please remember that a cup of tea that is patiently and respectfully prepared is all you need. Let’s sit still, adjust our breathing, relax our body and regain the joy and curiosity on our journey.

What is time? What is happiness? What is life? We can all find the answers from a cup of tea we are holding at this moment. We need it to take our time, pause, and look at this world, then look at ourselves. Maybe the world is better when you take time.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
