Here I am practicing arpeggios and thinking of this zen story
There was once a sumo wrestler named Onami, ‘Great Waves’. He was immensely strong and could beat anyone at his school, even his teacher. But when he had to wrestle in public he became so nervous that even weaker men could easily defeat him.
Finally, not being able to bear it any longer, Onami decided that what he needed to do was go and see a Zen master for help. It so happened that a wandering Zen master named Hakuju was staying at a temple near the sumo school. So Onami went there and told the teacher of his problem. ‘Your name is Great Waves, yet you do not experience yourself this way,’ said Master Hakuju. ‘Stay here in the temple tonight and meditate upon yourself as huge waves, sweeping everything before you. If you are successful at this you will be unbeatable.’ So Onami sat throughout the night, trying to see himself as a great wave, washing everything before it. At first it was very difficult but after a long time of perseverance he was able to feel himself as a great wave, stronger and vaster than anything else. The waves grew bigger and bigger, washing away the altar in front of which he was sitting. Then they washed away the very temple in which he sat. The whole world was one great wave, rushing back and forth. By morning the waves had calmed down and the entire world was a vast sea, still and silent.
When Master Hakuju came back in the morning he found Onami sitting in meditation, with a small smile upon his great round face. He patted him gently upon his giant shoulder and said, ‘Now there is nothing that will disturb you. Remember, you are those waves, washing everything before you.’ The next day Onami entered a sumo contest. This time, instead of being too nervous to wrestle, he saw himself as the great waves of the sea and swept all opponents before him. From this time on, Onami was unbeatable.

Исключительный новый опыт, ритуал Чайной Церемонии.
Активно пактикую различные виды медитаций уже около 10 лет, и могу отметить, что хороший чай и правильная церемония прочищают мозг не хуже любой из них.
Останавливает суету беспокойного ума, помогает осознаться здесь и сейчас, ювелирно обостряя вкусовые и ольфакторные рецепторы восприятия.
С каждым кругом букет раскрывается и играет новыми нюансами и тончайшими оттенками - цветочными, древесными, травяными...
Собрали круг из на нашей парфюмерной стаи, отличное расширение рамок восприятия, и дополнительное единение.
Хочу выразить сердечную благодарность @masha_mystery

мой момент инициации ждал тебя🖤
