“Suppose you are drinking a cup of tea… When you hold the cup, you may like to breath in, to bring your mind back to your body, and you become fully present.  You must be completely awake in the present to enjoy the tea.

Only in the awareness of the present, can your hands feel the pleasant warmth of the cup.  Only in the present, can you savor the aroma, taste the sweetness, appreciate the delicacy.  If you are ruminating about the past, or worrying about the future, you will completely miss the experience of enjoying the cup of tea.  You will look down at the cup, and the tea will be gone.  Life is like that.  If you are not fully present, you will look around and it will be gone.  You will have missed the feel, the aroma, the delicacy and the beauty of life.  It will seem to be speeding past you.  The past is finished.  Learn to let it go.  The future is not even here yet.  Plan for it, but do not waste your time worrying about it.  Worrying is worthless.  When you stop ruminating about what has already happened, when you stop worrying about what might never happen, then you will be in the present moment.  Then you will begin to enjoy the joy in life.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh
