I haven’t blogged for a while. I’ve been practicing every day but after each session I don’t feel like writing my thoughts; I feel like I don’t have anything insightful to add. Today, however, I took the opportunity to practice the eating meditation during my daily snack time. I am much more into my breakfast, lunch, or dinner and so I pay attention at those times. For snack time, however, I just shove the same thing in my mouth each day (cheese, peanut butter, and a piece of dark chocolate) and do so while I’m working. I never notice the texture or smell of the food, the flavor, the curves and dips of the peanut butter, etc. Today, was awesome! My cheese smelled lovely, a mild cheddar full of rich molecules that permeated my mouth and the back of my nasal cavity. The peanut butter was creamy and smooth. I salivated more which made the peanut butter go down well. My precious piece of chocolate tasted tangy with a hint of sweetness. It was a much more enjoyable experience and snack time was fulfilling for the first time in months.
