Drink Your Tea Slowly.

Via on Apr 18, 2013


“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the earth revolves…slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh 

Some things in this life, really don’t need much further explanation.

And yet, sometimes it takes life stopping us dead in our tracks for us to shut off our minds and finally listen.

Never let anyone or anything hinder you from seeing the fullest beauty of this one single moment.

And, don’t wait on something stopping you dead in your tracks for you to find the time to appreciate the brilliance of these quickly passing moments.
