The Right Cup Of Tea

If you uttered to somebody nowadays that you think your destiny can be seen from the left-overs of your coffee mug or tea cup they would probably say!'you can what?' But rest assured; they would definitely think you are crazy. The crazier part is that people have actually welcomed tea leaf reading as a believable fortune telling ritual for centuries. This is probably due to the fact that psychiatrists didn't exist and there weren't any medications being handed out to treat delusions of downright stupidity. Tea leaf readings originated in Asia and spread primarily from China. In ancient times it isn't all that hard to believe that well minded people could be sucked into this practice because there wasn't a window such as the internet or television to post in your face how crazy and unlikely to be real a practice like this is, I mean after all, people still thought the world was flat. So who could to say that the left over useless crap at the bottom of your cup wasn't a window to the universe? At the very most a tea leaf reading session should be done only by those that are less than gullible and see it as something of a hobby or social session for fun, not somebody who uses it to 'see the future' or has Ms. Cleo on speed dial. If you won't be ripping out your hair during the preparation process because you just can't wait to find out what lays ahead on the road of life for you, then by all means you should invite some friends over, boil some water and throw some loose tea leaves in without the use of a strainer, and find a comfy room to relax in and serve some hot tea. Take a few moments to take in the pleasant aroma and sip the tea while engaging in healthy conversation. For giggles, you can leave half of a sip in your cup to swirl around and see where the tea leaves settle. With very little light-hearted research you can find out the tea leaf meanings of the settled leaves and see what 'destiny will bring you'.
