Taste Meditation The Daily Stillness

Wednesday’s task was pretty simple. Or so I though. I read it at breakfast where I didn’t really feel ready to close my eyes. I should have done so as it is the only meal I usually eat alone.

The next time I though about it was looking at my clean plate at the end of dinner. So much for my intention to attention.

Yesterday evening, Friday. I spend a good bit more attention on cooking.

I don’t close my eyes. I do notice the taste to the food, the texture in my mouth, the way flavours mixed, how the wine tasted, the light in the kitchen, the colours of the food, wine, bottle. I listened and watched myself listening and watching my wife.

Number 4 in the list was easy. It does not get better than this.
