Healing and Nutrition

Before every meal we have a food blessing at the Mindfulness Project.
This is what food is for us:

With wise reflection I eat this food,
Not only for joy, or for pleasure,
Not for beautification or intoxication,
Just to maintain this body to live a spiritual life dedicated to the people who need our help.
May we use the energy of this food to help the people who don’t have enough to eat right now,
To help those without access to shelter, medicine or clothes,
And may we also use  the energy of this food to help the environment and animals.

May all living beings be full of loving kindness.
