The book Inspiration Coffee & Wisdom Tea: Daily Delight at the Divine Coffeehouse was written to inspire and encourage you with uplifting and wise messages of worldwide well-known people. Every morning, we wake ourselves up with a cup of coffee or a latte, with their intoxicating aroma, to help push us along with our daily tasks. In the middle of the day, we might pick up a cup of tea to calm our nerves down and help us finish up our day. As we go through this daily routine and rely on those external stimulants to get us through our day, I imagine how much more our spirit might need encouragement to stay focused and get inspired each day. That is how I have come up with the concept of having two sayings each day for this book. One is to inspire us, like coffee or latte, in the morning, while another, like tea, is to give us some wisdom to help us face our daily decisions with confidence. I give context and a short interpretation of each saying before wrapping it into a small package with a bow either called In-Flavor (Inspiration Flavor) or Wi-Flavor (Wisdom Flavor). Then I help mix that flavor and turn it into Inspiration Coffee or Wisdom Tea for you to enjoy each day.
Like our daily coffee and tea, I try to keep the two daily sayings and their reflections short and sweet. This book is designed to give us a quick spiritual boost as we try to run from one task to another in our busy schedule. Although the short-term goal of this book is to help us get through each day with joy and purpose, its long-term focus is to fine-tune our characters and make us better people at home, at work, at our worshipping place, in the neighborhood, and in other places. We need to talk and act differently than what we see on the news or witness in our world every day. When we can do that, we help change the world one person at a time, and others hopefully will follow our example. This transformation will not only make our world a better place but also make us feel much better about ourselves.
Another reason for me to write this book is because I have observed many decent people who might not be quite religious and have strong belief on certain values want to share them with the world every chance possible. The best way for them to do that is putting one of those values in a short saying at the bottom of their signatures or under a logo of a company. Check that out for yourself! In fact, I have seen two recent television interviews that people have quoted the sayings of inspiring figures who have changed their lives or helped them made important decisions. Furthermore, many of us enjoy reading a short message from the fortune cookie, which often makes us pause and think a little bit. That is what I hope this book will help us do each day: just to pause for a few minutes and think about those two daily sayings.
Finally, we have seen how national identity has been emphasized all over the world and turned people against one another. The truth is that we all belong to one human family, regardless of our races and religions. We need to learn to get along and help out one another.
