This is a wonderful ode to gratitude. It shows how we are connected with each other. Many unseen hands have been instrumental in creating the cup and creating tea. A cup of tea is a symbol and a reminder of the interconnectedness of existence. We all are everyday receiving gifts from nature and human beings from far and near. We need to be mindful of the visible and invisible thread that connects us all.We are grateful for the gifts that we receive everyday.
I have been blessed to receive such gifts everyday from the morning to the night in many many ways;My daughter making a cup of coffee for me and reminding me to drive to work safely.Children greeting me Namaste:by folding their hands lovingly. My colleagues extending their warm and kind hands when I need help from them.I feel happy to offer my gifts to my students, colleagues and parents. It is my experience that when I keep my mind and heart open, I realize how deeply we are connected with each other and how blessed we are to have such gifts everyday in our life.
When I take a walk in nature, I realize how the sun, the air, the earth and the water and the space are intimately connected with one another.We are grateful to have such gifts coming to all of us without discrimination.
May everyday be a Thanks Giving day. May we all be mindful of this interconnectedness and be grateful for such precious gifts.
