Body and Spirit

cup of coffeeJust like a cup of coffee, the form sustains the formless.

The Body sustains the Spirit.
Yin is the material basis of Yang.
Without the coffee, it is just a cup.
Without the Spirit, it is just a body.
Without the cup, there is no place for the coffee to gather and become a meaningful event in our morning routine.
Without the Body, there is no place for the Spirit to reside and become the wondrous creation known as you!

    I don’t think I will ever drink a cup of coffee or tea and not think about this imagery.
