I looked at the ancient tea bowl
behind glass in the museum.
Its beauty and simplicity beckoned to me.
My gaze brought it into my heart.
It became my soul for the moment.
I turned it on its side
and felt a pouring out.
I turned it back
and felt a filling up.
~Meditations by Shelley Richardson
The meditation comes from the book, Looking Deeply into Tea,
Thoughts and Prayers
I find I have an extra copy of this book on my shelf;
so I will be giving it away to one of you.
Leave a comment on this post and
there will be a drawing on Friday.
