#OrganycLifestyle for Sensitive Skin

You must be completely awake in the present to enjoy the tea. 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.

If you are not fully present, you will look around and it will be gone. You will have missed the feel, the aroma, the delicacy and beauty of life. It will seem to be speeding past you.

The past is finished. Learn from it and let it go.

The future is not even here yet. Plan for it, but do not waste your time worrying about it.

Worrying is worthless.

When you stop ruminating about what has already happened, when you stop worrying about what might never happen, then you will be in the present moment.

Then you will begin to experience joy in life.

I’m having a deep moment, bear with me. My girlfriend is currently experiencing a forever yoga phase that seems to be escaping from her pores during every breathing moment. Apparently, it’s rubbing off, because this poem has truly touched me, and I have begun completely focusing on the herbal tea concoction she generously prepares for us before we go to bed. I’m tired of worrying about paying the bills, meeting deadlines, offending my annoying boss, forgetting birthdays, and whether or not I will one day be a homeowner.

My girlfriend is so totally obsessed about living in the moment that when I got my period, and told her I had cramps in the middle of our tea meditation, she actually replied, “What a beautiful moment. Live the fact that you’re bleeding, appreciate the goddess in you.” Then, she winked and said, “The Organyc pads are in the closet.” I smiled and returned to inhale the steam evaporating from my tea.

There is something so utterly simple about making and enjoying a cup of tea with the woman you love. A shared silence, where merely being brings a sensation of peace, serenity and wellness that remains with you and rocks you softly to sleep profoundly throughout the night.
