Pick up your kettle
pour from heart of your being
you are pouring your essence
the very vibration you are
into the teapot.
No need to pour in an Aisan way
No need to pour in a spiritual way
No need to pour in the right way.
Pour from the simpleness of your presence
the pureness of your intent and the
warmth of your heart.
who wouldn't want a cup of that
tea made in this way becomes medicine
and will heal in unexpected ways.
WHEN you serve tea you are serving you
the human body being is unimaginably powerful
even the best tea is corrupted
if you are not in alignment with heaven and earth
and firmly grounded in the truth of who you are in the moment.
Dont pour spiritually don't pour as a tea person, dressed in the cloths of culture and tradition
pour from the genuine unique person you are,
pour with love and virtue and clear intent
pour from presence, relaxed awareness and being.
both tea and water are like homeopathic templates
they are responsive to whatever vibration touches them
When you pour from a state of wholeness and genuineness
you are structuring water and tea in those principles
When you pour from love, love will be felt.
But you must be completely authentic, from the depths of your complex humaness.
You are pouring you
into each cup.
be as simple as you can
be as content and present
as an old tree.
hold you space and
at the same time give freely.
Pour from heaven
blessing earth with
the fill of each cup
this is the way to consecrate tea
this is the way to bless your guests.
remain in the flow of heaven and earth
become the holy marriage of their union.
When you are serving your tea
you are serving yourself
you are literally pouring your whole self into each pot
you mind, intent, body, spirit, soul, alignment-
are energetically imprinted on
the leaves and water,
it is their nature.
so pour from all of you
your personality, your being, your presence
all that you are in this world.
if you do this
all the love that you are in this world
will flavor the tea.
be natural, be you…
when you hold the circle of tea ceremony
you are initiating and energetic field
bring presence, clarity, grace and surrender to this vibrational field
it will teach you and your guests
it is a living thing
learn to listen to it
respond to it
tea moves into the spaces of the heart of hearts
it moves through a human being
a watery messenger of the five elements
bringing their wisdom of
the harmonics of nature
to the very cellular intelligence of the body
the whispering heart of nature
kissed into a leaf
drunk into the body
breathed into the soul of this being
sung into the lotus heart of wisdom
residing in the chest
watery messenger of the divine flow of light
fiery alchemist of elemental awakening
earthy mother welcoming spirit into from
woody freind of aspirational growth
mineral legions invoking transformational magic,
sparks igniting the laughing cells
into a dance of creation.
