“As soon as you see something,
you already start to intellectualize it.
As soon as you intellectualize something,
it is no longer what you saw”. ~Shunryu Suzuki
A friend gave this as a house-warming present.
I’ve always wanted a Japanese cast iron teapot. I love this one so much. It was off-white, like the lid, but is growing warm with the color of the leaves that steep inside. It has become my daily reminder to create more of what I want life to be. And to savor it. Every second.
Drink your tea slowly and reverently,
as if it is the axis
on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly,
rushing toward the future.
Only this moment is life.
Thich Nhat Hanh
