The way to take care of the future

“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

When everything we do becomes this, time becomes generous, peace and gratitude becomes possible, and everything changes. There is just a getting to know, and a melting away of anxiety.

And then in each moment, we know what to do because we do each thing slowly and reverently, and as we become complete in ourselves through our pure presence, our world becomes whole.
