Is There A Worm In Your Tea?The Seeker and Shaman Woman were sitting under a grape arbor having tea on a bright sunny afternoon. "It's a lovely afternoon," remarked the Shaman, as she soaked in the sun's warmth. Frowning, the Seeker said, "Yeah, I guess so, " apparently oblivious to the magic of the perfect day. "You are worrying again," observed the Shaman."What makes me worry so much, Shaman Woman?" asked the Seeker."It's like a worm in your tea," answered the Shaman.
Only half-listening, the Seeker replied politely, "Yeah, I guess." "Would you like some warm tea?" asked the Shaman as she poured a cup and handed it to the Seeker.
Thanking the Shaman, the Seeker took the cup. Just as he was about to take a sip, he looked into the cup and, to his horror saw, a worm in his tea. "Ugh, there's a worm in my tea. This is terrible! How awful! What if I didn't see the worm and drank the tea! What could have happened? I might have been poisoned. I could have dies!" The Seeker went on and on, becoming increasingly upset as he did."Is that a worm in your tea," asked the Shaman as she pointed to a grapevine above the Seeker's head, "or is it a reflection that you see?"
