This morning, while eating sliced apples dipped in pecan butter, I was flooded with an image of the trees the apples and pecans came from. I could see the trees pregnant with their fruits. I could feel the sun in the tastes on my tongue. I had to sit back and reflect on this vision. It was powerful and profound at the same time.
As I continue to practice mindful eating (I’m far from mastering this meditation) new ways of being with food arise on the journey. I am filled with appreciation for the food that I ate this morning. I am filled with gratitude for the trees that bore their fruit for my meal.
I had no want to eat more than my stomach could process. I sensed the Sun and the Earth filling me with more than nutrients. I feel filled with light . . .
I am not sure if this vision will return with my next meal. Yet, I know that I can contemplate where my food comes from the next time I sit down to eat. This is all part of my mindful eating journey.
