But rather than brewing tea, Suzuki means to kindle our awareness, and our spirit (ki ). Ki appears in many Japanese words - tenki (weather), kisei (elan), iki (spirited). In each of these cases, ki points to the latent potentioal to reveal its inner life. Atmosphere, life-force, beauty - each is composed of ki itself.
