Te – Meditationer

” In my own hands I hold a bowl of tea;

I see all of nature represented in its green color.

Closing my eyes I find green mountains and pure water within my own heart.

Silently, sitting alone, drinking tea, I feel these become part of me.

Sharing this bowl of tea with others, they, too, become one with it and nature. “
