Tea is a wonderful medium for exchange and cultivation of relationships and community. The ‘Three Cups of Tea’ book author Greg Mortenson used this ancient cultural proverb below as a way to wend into the hearts and minds of Afghani communities as he raised funds and built schools to educate girls – against traditional philosophies there. He has helped build more than 65 schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
And back here at home, often a tea moment between friends is one of the sweetest and most nourishing times we can spend. With our schedules and family activities we may not make the time we once did for cultivating love in our closest community – our support systems. Sharing time and experience is a wonderful way to cultivate more love in your world.
And as within so without – so more love in your world is ultimately more love in our world.
So cultivate love in your life – make a conscious effort – with your BFF, neighbour or community group – share, be kind and speak from your heart. For love to grow and flow it needs to circulate – be receptive – listen deeply and practice your inner smile. Your community and our world will thank-you and appreciate your conscious cultivation of love in your life and in our world.
So who you gonna call…. 🙂 share a tea moment with your community – the closest and beyond! If they’re not close enough to do it in person, connect virtually.
This week, share with us your intention to cultivate love – and let us know who you gonna call… and be entered for a chance to win – 2 Libre mugs – one for you and one for your tea moment buddy.
