Coffee Musings

We are a creation of our past. Like the bean, the location in the world in the soil the nearby trees and birds the loving hands of care takers. The picking and drying shipping and roasting. Oh the roasting. All those effect our flavor and who we are as the bean.

interesting.....was thinking along these lines this morning, but thinking how not to be upset by the some past consequences, things that I had missed, but consider that their is more to it in the big future picture...what I missed was good indeed, but what is now and what is to come is far better....trying to keep shaking the hands, today, of those who wronged me yesterday...

...or in coffee speak: the bean may have traveled a tough road with some bad shipping issues, but in a nice mug, good coffee house with nice folks serving....it can still be a damn good cup of coffee....

...one may hide from others....but not from oneself.....
to anonymous "one".....
for also ones happiness is blurred by what was or may be....only now is what one poses....."ni-ju sichi" from "Tao Te Ching"...

in a broader sense of what is missed, not missed, present missed or future missed....consider that portion of the introduction to "Tao Te Ching, 25th edition...if one hasn't a copy of this....one may choose to spend a few moments at the book store browsing the publication....Rowena Pattee Kryder's introductory words are found on the page behind Jane English's comments....if one reads Rowena's words, the last four paragraphs ( second column if your read as the western world reads...).....
.....in reading the first anonymous post.....one can easily consider the perspectives of cause and effect....karma from the eastern teachings....( of interest may be this link http://www.thenazareneway.com/karma.htm
...those last four paragraphs put
"things" in perspective....including coffee....for one may also consider the high of the burning bush, amphetamines, and so forth, but the mind creations are far beyond ......best wishes for happiness and harmony....to those whose thoughts and intentions are in the true meaning ....
