Be kind and compassionate, and the whole world will be your friend.
“There is always time for tea.”
Like the quote says, there’s always time for tea. Time to stop and smell the roses. We just have to make the time in our busy lives.
I drew this not long ago as part of a meditation through art project. I then stuck it up on my art site http://andysartworks.wordpress.com/
“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.”
-Thich Nhat Hanh (via japanese-zen)
I happen to listen to an interview today with Thich Nhat Hanh, and thought this a fitting quote. Especially since I am currently drinking a cuppa tea, from my lovely yixying buddah’s in a tree clay teapot. I am one of those who savor my cuppa. It’s nice to slow down sometimes, and allow ourselves to recharge. To soak up newly gained wisdom, or just ponder. I find comfort and solace in the Gayatri mantra I sing myself tonight.
Strength does not lie in what you have. It lies in what you can give.
It could even be as simple [and free] as a hug or smile that could easily uplift and transform someone’s day.
Being disabled doesn’t have to be a disadvantage.
We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.
– Jawaharlal Nehru
Real happiness lies in that which never comes, nor goes but simply is.
You can run after satisfaction, but satisfaction must come from within.
You must know that you can swim through every tide and change of time.
