Let's get this blog started by enjoying a
Cup of Tea, with Nan-in
Nan-in served tea. He poured his visitor's cup full, and then kept on pouring.
The professor watched the overflow until he no longer could restrain himself. "It is overfull. No more will go in!"
"Like this cup," Nan-in said, "you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?"Lest we forget, we cannot retrieve health. It is innate, homeostatic, and visits us when we are still, kind, and buoyant. From the prodding of Western medical minds to the hands of holistic care-ers the layout of a mind and soul are mapped in divergent realms for Northernamericans.
How do we solve the clamoring desires for youth, beauty, balance, painlessness and health if we cannot first learn to be still and accept life?
