Not Serving Tea to some guests






“Leave your front door and your back door open.


Allow your thoughts to come and go.


Just don’t serve them tea.”


– Shunryu Suzuki –




My two cents:       60,000 to 70,000 thoughts move through those doors everyday for each of us.



Why would we ever serve tea to unworthy or negative thoughts.



In fact, why serve tea to any thought, when life is much happier empty of thought, focused on this present moment.

  1. Yes! I am currently present and not serving any tea to my negative thoughts.🍵

  2. Excellent

    We need not be perfect but we can build awareness and practice til it becomes habit

  3. I love the different visualizations

    Like my model

    No thought is needed while you focus on our breath cycle

    Practice practice practice

    Let go
