Between Fairfax and La Brea,

Between San Vicente and Pico




in the morning,
my company is a cup of tea.

boiling water and leaves
make the drink of kings
even a poor man affords.

nature reveals its secrets
to the quiet tea-drinker;
the quiet tea-drinker
keeps no secrets from the world.

if the tea is too hot,
it is not tasted.

if the tea is too cool,
it is not savored.

if the tea is too strong,
it is not finished.

if the tea is too weak,
it is not valued.

there is a moment
when the tea is sublime~
step into that moment,
steep in that moment.

boiling water and leaves
make the drink of buddhas
even a poet affords…

but observation is the recipe:

know when to remove
the water from the fire.
know when to remove
the leaves from the water.

what results
is not fire nor water nor leaves.

what results
is a moment of peace
warming your hands
through a perfect bowl.

The blessthebody.com Spiritual Remedies most pertinent to the holiday season are Silver and Gold Lights. blessthebody.com Silver Light calms the frenzy; and Gold Light stimulates the party feeling. All the Spiritual Remedies are great stocking stuffers ~ go to blessthebody.com to select the perfect remedies for your loved ones or see the list at RoyAnthonyShabla.com. Shipping and handling are free of charge.
Silver Light

Hysteria, frenzy, and spacey-ness are antithetical to being productive and manifesting a glorious present and future. Anxiety/nervousness prevents you from being your authentic self.

Silver Light grounds you into the physical world and calms you in your physical life. It contracts your energy so you are not dispersed. This results in the ability to maintain focus. It is excellent for students, meditators, actors, councilors, and any detail-oriented work. Combine with blessthebody.com Bright Brain for deeper effects.

Gold Light

Inertia, lethargy, dullness are antithetical to being productive and manifesting a glorious present and future. Shyness/cautiousness prevents you from being your authentic self.

blessthebody.com Gold Light stimulates you in the physical world and excites you in your physical life. It expands your energy field so you become dynamic. This results in great magnetism, charisma, attractiveness. It is excellent for performers and other people in the public eye. Combine with Pink Light for attracting romance. Combine with Green Light for attracting health and money.

With global dimming (less sunlight due to pollution) and the Winter daytimes (less sunlight due to shorter daylight hours and the lower angle of the sun), blessthebody.com Gold Light is more important than ever. Lack of sunlight contributes to vitamin d deficiency (and all that entails), seasonal adjustment disease and depression, and various other glandular/hormonal imbalances. Use blessthebody.com Gold Light liberally throughout the Winter season to help alleviate sun deficiency and improve your general well being.
Body of Water

My handmade book, Body of Water, will be available this month. A beautiful work of art, this limited edition book includes a two-color letterpress, hand sewn booklet with an original painting; a dvd of the short film, Body of Water, with special artwork; packaged in a portfolio of handmade paper. Each is signed and numbered. $180. RoyAnthonyShabla.com

Feng Shui

One aspect of the Winter Holidays worldwide is the display of evergreen. “Christmas” trees predate the Christian era and Pagans and Witches decorate with evergreen as a symbol of hope, core vitality, and resurrection.

In feng shui, trees are a symbol of vitality as it pertains to prosperity and romance. But trees can also bring conflict ~ to avoid this, never group three in a room (trees are never allowed in the bedroom because you cannot rest properly with another “live” entity in the room ~ this includes artificial trees ~ and because they deplete your oxygen). If you have conflict in your life, dress your holiday tree with red lights.

Decorate your holiday tree with gold and silver balls to symbolize an abundance of money and harmonious dealings with money.

Decorate your holiday tree with soft pink balls to symbolize a vital romantic life.

If you have a history of trauma or grief, do not decorate with sentimental ornaments. Definitely never use broken ornaments.

Antique decorations offer the potential of stable finances and enduring abundance. Make sure they are in reasonable condition.

Trees work best in the North and the East and are most challenged in the West. It is not recommended to put a tree in the Southeast.

Always keep live trees healthy, beautiful, and safe; and artificial trees clean.

May the hope of the season grow in your heart.
