“We have more money and more material comfort, but we aren’t really happier because we simply do not have time to enjoy each other’s company. There is a way to live our daily life that transforms normal life into a spiritual life (happy life?).
Even very simple things, like drinking tea with mindfulness can…enrich our lives.
Why would people spend two hours just drinking one cup of tea? From a business viewpoint, this is a waste of time. But time is not money. Time has much more value than money. Time is life (đời sống/buhay). Money is nothing compared with life.
In two hours of drinking tea together, we don’t get money, but we do get life”
