Teahouse Wisdom

From the Hidden Peak teahouse journal:

-You are the immensity of life, spiraling galaxies and oceanic death.
You are eternity. Beyond all comprehension.
And who can threaten eternity?
Only eternity can play this trick on itself and fret over parking tickets and cry over losing what can never be lost-love.

-Master your actions with goodness.
Release anything that doesn’t serve your highest good and actions. Replace it with your newness.
Can’t let go? Find something similar but better for you and others around you. Take steps if you have to.
But please, for yourself and others, try to do your best for your spirit or soul and creation.
Your truth and inner light are always within.
Take a moment with yourself to check in with how you’re doing on your path.

One of my favorite phrases in Mandarin is 慢慢地走. It means walk slowly. But it is necessarily used to tell someone to walk slowly. It means be careful, take care, something like that. But when I think of it, I can’t help but remember to slow down while being careful.


Sometimes recovery is waking up early to write in coffee shops and practicing yoga and eating lots of fruit and chocolate and sometimes it’s staying in bed all day and hiding from the world until you can stop crying. All of this is okay. What’s important is that you take care of yourself no matter what kind of day you’re having.

Does anybody else think they have misophonia? I’d hate to self diagnose, but it’s something I’ve dealt with recently. Thoughts?


walk into any starbucks and say “i can’t believe they’re doing a secret screening of the unreleased Wes Anderson movie down the street” then collect all the macbooks that everyone who just ran out left behind. keep your favorite one and sell any you don’t need
