Divine Reverence is a foundational principle of Eastern wisdom. The ability to be fully present and participate in each moment with Divine Reverence brings a peace and connection to all things that rushing through life will never bring. To quote the beloved Thich Nhat Hanh:
“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves –
slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.”
Do not get caught in the illusion of what is important. Do not give your power to the structure by which others live their lives. Instead, drink your tea slowly and know the importance of who you are in each moment. Be reverent in every thought and deed. Let Divine Reverence be your focus this week, this month, this year.
