Food For Thought & A Savoring Meditation

I enjoy this Sunday and contemplate the beauty of each moment. I drink a cup of tea and consider the vapors that move through my nose and mouth, the tea soothes my throat, calms my mind and warms my being.

A Sunday Reflection for Savoring:

The past is already gone.
It is not the present.
With each present moment, there is an opportunity of a new beginning.

Seize it!

 

Greeting-Our-Negative-Emotions Meditation

It is human for all of us to have negative emotions on a daily basis unless we are a seasoned mindfulness practitioner who knows how to prevent and transform them. Whenever a negative emotion arises, be it anger, despair, sadness, frustration, fear, or anxiety, repeat the following gatha (verse) silently to yourself for three to six in-breaths and out-breaths. Breathing in, I am aware of my anger/despair/sadness/frustration/fear/anxiety. Breathing out, I embrace my anger/despair/sadness/frustration/fear/anxiety.

Standing-in-Line Meditation

In our daily lives, we often find ourselves having to wait in line. Sometimes we get irritated by the wait. It can be the checkout line at the supermarket, the security-check line at the airport, or the pickup line at our child’s school. Being in a line is a great opportunity to sneak in mindful breathing and refresh yourself. Breathing in, I use this time just for myself, to unite my body and mind. Breathing out, I feel refreshed.

The Five Contemplations

  1. This food is the gift of the whole universe: the earth, the sky, numerous living beings, and much hard, loving work.
  2. May we eat with mindfulness and gratitude so as to be worthy to receive it.
  3. May we recognize and transform our unwholesome mental formations, especially our greed, and learn to eat with moderation.
  4. May we keep our compassion alive by eating in such a way that reduces the suffering of living beings, stops contributing to climate change, and heals and preserves our precious planet.
