The Cup of Tea Philosophy
Life is like a “quick” stop to drink and enjoy a cup of tea. Ofcourse the only thing different is just we know when the tea is going to be finished but either way, it will be finished in anycase just a matter of how it’s finished. Some people choose to be grateful and some people does not. This philosophy seems to apply on how we value our life to our self and to other people as well.
Lets say we dont like the tea and we just drink it half way and stop drinking. The one making the tea for us is obviously trying to make the best tea there is to serve. There for the tea maker saw that we dont enjoy the tea and logically starts to ask questions like “what’s wrong with the tea?”. And we just say that well this is not my kind of tea, my taste is like this.. and like that…. i wanted to be.. like this .. and like that. There are even possibilities that you forcefully make the tea to be good according to your self, by adding more sugar or more tea leaves or even substance that maybe “hazardous”. The tea maker only makes that tea for you only once. Therefor there are only 2 options of events that may happen : either you leave the tea and move on or the tea maker will take that tea away from you and eventually you have to leave as there is nothing more to drink.
Now lets say we like the tea, we cherish the tea and enjoy every sip of it until the final drop. Knowing also that when the tea is finished then it is time to go. However the tea maker will probably saw what you feel and how you enjoy so much of the tea. Chances are, the tea maker came to you before it is finished and pour an additional tea. And ofcourse chances also you dont get that luxury and just leave once its finished.
There is another kind… Some people maybe too affraid to finish their tea, as they know it is very tasteful and yet dont want it to end, they are affraid to leave. They take their time to drink, at least they try, but we all do know that there is no such thing as “forever” the tea will eventually .. expires, the taste became un-pleasant. And at that time.. we suffer the consequences of the taste due to our own and eventually we have to leave as the tea maker says “I’m sorry sir, this tea is no longer drinkable…”
Ladies and gentlements, fellow readers, I’m just pointing out how life is short and should be cherished. Not too much but enough to show our Maker, that we apreciate the “tea” that has been given to us. And in time we will say .. “thank you, it was a wonderful tea” and we will move on to our next journey.
To my dear eldest brother, you have thought me of how life should be cherished, ferewell and have a great journey
