who would deny...

Who would deny that when I am sipping tea in my tearoom I am swallowing the whole universe with it and that this very moment of my lifting the bowl to my lips is eternity itself transcending time and space?

Who would deny that when I am drinking tea in my classroom (with a student and looking out at the wonderful view of the north shore) that I am swallowing the whole universe with it and that the very moment of lifting my cup to my lips is eternity itself transcending time and space?
