A heavy object needs energy to lift it. A crane can lift the biggest of cargo; yet no matter how mighty it is-it cannot lift up the broken spirit!
How can you mend a broken heart? How can you lift a sunken spirit? How can you heal a wounded soul? A smile, an embrace, a hug, a kind word, or wink of sympathy might do the trick.
Today I learned a little secret from the East-A remedy comes in the lightest of form and the most precious and tender plant-Saffron.
It’s been the ancient remedy since the beginning of civilization. A cup of tea made with few of the precious threads of Saffron and boiled water savored with honey or little ginger- one starts to feel instantly the positive effect, the warm cup of saffron will work like miracle to elevate your spirit and calm your anxiety. I don’t mean to say that it is a cure; rather I am trying to say that sometimes we need a little break from the throbbing pain inside…even if it is only while the cup of tea lasts. Suddenly, all is well with the world and life is gooood 🙂 Try it out and tell me how it made you feel?
My article is intended to inspire you to sit back and relax and savor a warm cup of tea…pause the worries and the pain and enjoy the warmth that it may provide for you.
It is a blessing that nothing lasts in this life…I like to remember this at times of pain and suffering.
I will only end this post with these verses by Mahjoor Kashmiri:
“O saffron flower! sitting in silent meditation
And radiating the fire of youth,
All others have run away,
Leaving the field for you,
Like the stars hide themselves
When the sun ascends the heavens. ”
Peace be with you all.
