Regarding the current predicament, the word “Talk” starts with the letter “T” or the word “Tea.” It is not a mere occurrence of chance. There is a link that goes beyond the alphabet we all use. But before I go on to describe the delicate relationship between these two lovely elements of life, let me first “tea” up the issue by talking about speak. Talk is one of the most important aspects of human interaction.
We chat every day. When we are at home, we converse with our partners as well as our offspring. We interact with our coworkers and chat to our customers when we are at work. We converse electronically over the phone, email, and Internet chat in addition to the more conventional in-person meetings and conversations. Not only do we converse with one another, but we also have conversations with ourselves.
Talking is an essential component of our everyday lives, just like the meals and beverages we consume. Human beings are easily distinguished from other species due to our social nature and the fact that we live in communities. This is by far the most prominent trait that sets us apart. Talking to one another is the most common way that we engage with one another, and this has a significant impact on not only our ability to live but also our level of happiness and the level of success that we experience in life.
Let’s evaluate how effective we are at the talk.
I find we are great at opening a talk. We say “how are you” every day to everyone, to our neighbors, to our co-workers, and even to strangers. But I also find that we are not that good at talking when it comes to the real meaning of talk.
When we say “how are you?” we don’t really mean it. We don’t look at the person in the eyes and wait patiently to listen to his or her response. We don’t really care about the answer.
We don’t talk much to our spouses, to our children, and to our older parents. When we do talk to them, we tend to rush the conversation because we are stressed from our long commutes and challenging jobs in addition to mundane day-to-day chores.
Many of us are sons or daughters as well as parents. We know we should call and talk to our parents on regular basis. But many of us make the calls when we are on the road driving or waiting at the checkout line in a grocery store.
Not to mention our poor record of talk when it comes to challenging situations such as talking to mediate conflicts, disputes, and differences in ideas.
Along with unhealthy junk foods, talks have become hasty and unfulfilled.
Discovering the many health benefits of tea, more and more people are turning to green leaves for the health of our body, mind, and spirit. For the health of our human relationship, let’s add tea to our talk too.
Tea can calm our temperament down and warm our hearts up. Tea can slow down our pace and even help us pause when we attempt to rush. Only when we are calm and warm, we are able to enjoy the conversation and bring enjoyment to others.
People from eastern culture generally are not as expressive as those from western culture. For example, they hardly show their passion for the loved ones in words like “I love you.” That does not mean they talk less. They actually talk more. How can you say less and talk more? Isn’t it contradict? Well, the answer lies in the Tao of tea.
Next time before you pick up the phone and call someone; or when you and your friends get together, make a cup or a pot of hot and aromatic tea first. Let the rising mist, the unfolding leaves, and the soothing liquor kick off the talk. Infuse the magic leaves into the interaction gradually and take the time to brew the conversation slowly. You will be amazed by the results of a talk infused with tea through time.
Tea, talk, and time are the most powerful trio that works in tandem to enrich, enhance and enlighten our lives.
