Mindless




 
We pour tea into the cup mindlessly, we drink it mindlessly. We go about our days mindlessly. How much different it would be if we were mindful instead; mindful of our own breath, mindful of the leaf falling from the tree and scraping along the asphalt parking lot in the afternoon wind, mindful of all that surrounds us, mindful of what is truly important here. If we are mindful of the teachings of the Dao, we can be at ease, at peace, and in perfect union with the universe.
