New Things to Learn About Old Things

Today, as I sat with my food mindfully, listening to Sharon’s guidance, I noticed something.  Something that I had not noticed ever, to my recollection.  I was salivating.  I could feel warmth in my mouth.  I could feel the warm watery collection of saliva increasing.  The digestive process beginning inside my body before I even put a morsel of food to my mouth.  What a joy it was to revel in this new sensation today.  My own sense of touch and smell informing my body that it was time to eat and digest.  This component piece of body wisdom that went unnoticed until today.  There’s always more to discover.  New things to learn about old things.
