It’s not possible to see into the future. This is a good thing.

That said, I sure do waste a lot of time trying to predict it, change it … or just worry about it.  Enough of that.

As I gaze into my cup of tea today, I will shut my eyes and enjoy the steam on my face. The warmth of the cup in my hand. The sweet smell. The taste.

I will not search the tea leaves for answers because that not only takes away the pleasure of the tea I am presently drinking, it may make my future tea taste bitter with resentment.



You must be completely awake in the present to enjoy the tea. Nhat Hanh
