Sometimes we run across something and the absolute simplicity of it makes us want to share it with everyone. This little gem is one of those instances. It's paragraphs hold a lot of power for making us more mindful eaters.  Here's one of them:

Eating a String Bean

Hold up a string bean and take a moment to see that it's a string bean with the whole world in it. There are clouds, sunshine and the hard work of the gardener. When we can see like that, we have wisdom. When we have wisdom it means that we have mindfulness and concentration. Don't chew your worries, your suffering or your projects. That's not good for your health. Just chew the string bean.
