The way of tea, ocTAROTober & stillness
The way of tea
After a long day or a trying moment…nothing like a cup of tea to find your zen space. There are more quotes and musings about tea than we could count, not to mention the art of the tea ceremony!
Use your free writing to share favourite tea quotes and to describe your tea ceremony and why not throw in a tea drinking photo too!
I love opportunities to learn and practice my tarot skills, so when I saw this little challenge by @newagehipster333 on Instagram, the timing was right on.
I am intrigued by universal symbolism, which is why tarot appeals to me so much. Your task is to find and share a tarot image that speaks to you and let it inspire some written wanderings.
If you fancy, join the challenge too!
Despite the business of school holidays, stillness is something I ponder about regularly. I daydream (usually when I'm driving to work!), about wandering in the bush or sitting under a tree, being still and observing everything around me.
Strangely enough, when the opportunity arises to do just that, I feel restless, as if I should be doing something...seems I'm very good at being still and doing nothing in particular at home where there is always a to-do list!
This lovely library book jumped out at me, (as they do!), I've barely skimmed the pages and have already found much wisdom.
So now for a little meditation on stillness.
What does stillness mean for you? How do you achieve it?
Where is your still space or place?
For me, it seems there is not much difference between wondering and wandering. It has always helped me find inspiration. Creative dabbling is good for the soul, I couldn't imagine life without it and often surprise myself by what I come up with.
