Slowing Down

Thinking, working too fast and constantly striving would kill our wellbeing. Here is an invitation to slow down, inspired by Thich Nhat Hahn’s poem Drink Your Tea, and in honor of his memory.

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.
