Tea is the ultimate relaxation ☕️.
It is a feast for your senses to smell the aroma the tea spreads when brewed.
The cultural component of tea is vast and interesting.
It makes tea truly appealing how healthy and versatile it can be.
The chemistry hidden in tea leaves is simply mind-blowing.
However, it’s not the reason why I love my tea today. That’s something else 💁♀️.
I love ‘T’ because ‘T’ stands for thought and thought is to expand the experience of being alive ❤️.
And drinking tea is like taking a mini-vacation. It gives you a break when you and everything else around you, is simply running. You take a break and you think. While sipping tea, you get an opportunity to tame the train of thoughts when we have a lot going on.
While sipping from your cup of tea, staring in nowhere out of the window, you are just contemplating…
That old man that followed you on your way back from the school
Those mistakes that shaped you forever
The latest promotion you just had
That one brave move that changed everything
That lady you met on the bus
That smallest bone in your ear
Your awesome friends who make you smile
Those clouds looking like a laughing face
The dreams you see every other night
Those medicines that caused the reaction
The subject you chose for your thesis
The flood of tears when your trust was first betrayed
The silent prayers that keep you going…
Anything can be the subject for contemplation, and even a small breakthrough is a joyful experience. To become conscious of something that you were not conscious of before is an enlightenment experience of your very being.
To think is amazing ❤️.
To think is beautiful ❤️.
To think is blessed ❤️.
While enjoying my tea, I usually take a pause. As the sips awaken the mind, I think what I see, what I hear and what I feel.
It is He Who has created for you (the faculties of) hearing, sight, feeling, and understanding: little thanks it is ye give! [Al-Qur’an; 23: 78]
And, I feel thankful for all I have and for being conscious of that.
We can never be truly grateful until we actually appreciate the gift of this life; and, we can never truly appreciate unless we think and ponder over the things around us and within us.
The gift of understanding is from Allaah SWT.
Do not just get consumed in the run of this life. Live it. And, prepare for the next one.
Think. Reflect. Thank.
Take a break & think ☕️.
Take some ‘T’ea & have some ‘Thoughts’. After all, ‘T’ stands for ‘Thoughts’.
Enjoy the tea and the thoughts!
