We can sip the tea together but remain alone

Arun:
Wish you were accompanying me. Together we can sip, still be alone. In aloneness one is really with the tea one is sipping. The tea is like an elixir, and it demands great attention. I just noticed that life is as delicate and fragile as that teapot. It needs the greatest care which is love.

Me:
I have always tried to suggest some friends that we could do just that: meet and remain silent, but no one over here dares…

Let´s say Tea is a metaphor for Life. In aloneness can one really sip life…as IT demands one´s greatest attention…In that aloneness there is relation, healthy relation with the other. Only those who know what true aloneness is, can have a meaningful relation…

You put it very wisely:

To see the delicacy and fragility of life, requires great sensitivity. After all, true sensitivity is the outcome of learning what aloneness is…

And without sensitivity and care – there can be no Love..
