What a delightful conversation! It so happens that tea is my favorite particle (especially in the company of the ginger particle :-)), so I can’t resist joining in this wave.
The first thought I have is that it’s very easy to trip ourselves up with words, so some awareness of that is helpful. Jennifer, in your first post, you asked “…I may ask what is this occurrence reminding me about who I am?”. The three references to yourself are evidently referring to different versions of the same self – one that asked the question, one that lies behind the first one and knows a bit more, and the One we suspect is behind everything and everyone :-).
I’m going to spend the rest of the day with this wave and see what thought particles fall out of it. 🙂
