Meditation, Life and Tea

Drink your tea slowly and reverently,
As if it is the axis on which the whole world revolves —
Slowly, evenly, without rushing to the future.
Live the actual moment.
Only this moment is life.

Thich Nhat Hanh

The best state of mind in which to drink tea is one of deep meditation.
The second best is while looking at a beautiful landscape or listening to music.
The third best is sharing a stimulating conversation.
In all cases, it is necessary to aspire toward a quiet and tranquil frame of mind.
