Have you ever see how animals eating their food?
Perhaps you might watch documentary about wild life.
When a lion is full, he will never go to hunt for food again even though he saw a group of deers.
A lion also will not hunt for food in order to store it for tomorrow.
If you’ve pet, you can observe their eating habit.
When our lovely cats, Little White & Little black is full, no matter what action we are taking to convince them to take more food, they are not going to take even slightly more.
This morning, I saw how careful was the tiny bee when taking nectar from flower.
It make me to further contemplate on our action when we are eating our food …
What is your eating habit?
Do you store a lot of food for tomorrow?
Do you eat when you need or when you want?
Do you eat regularly?
Do you easy to be tempted to eat more?
Do you waste your food?
Do you finish all your food?
Have you ever associate our eating habit with the preserving environment?
Imagine, if we don’t appreciate our food and cause wastage.
How much natural resources being wasted?
If our demand is based on “what we want” not “What our body need”, how much resources being wasted and also the impact to your good health?
Let’s learn from our animal friends, eat food when our body need, not want. Most important, do not give harm or damage to mother of earth and also all living beings when you are enjoying your food.
Always be mindful and be at present when you are eating your food. Then, then only you realize what you are eating.
“There are some people who eat an orange but don’t really eat it. They eat their sorrow, fear, anger, past, and future.”
