yogi tea and the path to enlightenment
Today’s words of wisdom come from the tag on a teabag. It was only two or three cups of tea ago that I noticed that each teabag of ‘Yogi Tea’ has a little mantra on it. Isn’t that great? Baby steps to enlightenment along with a delicious cup of ayurvedic tea!
‘Love what is ahead by loving what has come before.’
This is good advice for all of us, but I find it particularly appropriate for someone trying to run a family home in a castle weighed down by history and by the accumulated treasures and detritus of generations of predecessors. Extraordinary though this place is, sometimes I have to remind myself to love it, not to see it just as a burden. So, thanks, Yogi Tea.
