Do any of us REALLY think about the food that we eat? – the animals that contributed to our meal – the rain – the farmers – Mother Earth ?
I do – maybe not every day do I say a prayer to all who may have contributed to the meal I am eating, but I try to do that several times a week.
IMHO it is very important to acknowledge all of those who contributed in whatever way to the food we eat.
Blessings to all.
The entire process of sitting down to eat, reflecting on food and its preparation, and then the eating of it should be a method—one among many—to take us further on the path to enlightenment.
