Be Here Now

Only in the awareness of the present,

can your hands feel the pleasant warmth of the cup.

Only in the present, can you savor the aroma,

taste the sweetness, appreciate the delicacy.

If you are ruminating about the past,

or worrying about the future,

you will completely miss the experience of enjoying the cup of tea.

You will look down at the cup,

And the tea will be gone.

Life is like that.

~ Thich Nhat Hanh
