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;
Live the actual moment.
Only this moment is life.
-- Thich Nhat Hahn --

I came back here to tell you that since I first read this, this one has stuck with me. A gentle reminder that reverence consists of the smallest of our actions.

Not that I have become so much more reverent at present. I have a tendency to try to tackle the big things first, and quite often I am not well pleased with the results.

But for the rest of today, at least, I will try to be more mindful of small things.
