I sip the tea in front of me . I sense the taste engulfing my mouth proactively therefore the tea is to me a certainity but the tea is simply a matter , an ingredient dissolved in a concotion passing on the many stages of creation to purpose to dissolution and therefore so are we like the tea ourselves to a more evolved species or beings, that we may yet in time encounter .. are we all not connected matter to matter energy to energy as frequencies in the finite and the infinite of the interbeing in form and purpose.
And yet we think of ourselves so absolutely, so certain of our ingrained ways …and assume much significance through the mask of self importance. Just perhaps we also must try to sense a bit more and consider in seeing ourselves and others just like beings at different stages like the tea , each special and relevant in its own way to the whole, whatever the shape or form. For like unbrewed to the brewed tea from tender leaves that are easily blendable, and adaptable to the mature leave strengthened of flavour of experience of life and living , each evolving in the spaces between the certainity and uncertainity of life and living …. all in that one sip itself !
Just transitions of thoughts
Of the tree of life
Of leaves in the being
From human to tea
Leaving much to imagination
In the sensing .
For nothing is insignificant
When each evolves in time
To fulfill its purpose of being .
Haha! I know this is crazy… coming from a non tea drinker but just had to share as …all came from just a sip of this fresh hot tea on a cold winters day!😊
