Yesterday I was sitting eating a bowl of fruit for breakfast.
The first bite of the pear was lovely. I tasted that real pear flavour and felt the grainy pear texture. After that bite I was staring into space thinking about everything that I could think of, things that I had to be doing, things that I had to say to people and it was filling my mind.
Before I knew it, the pear was finished and I hadn’t even noticed eating it which was quite disappointing because it was really a beautiful pear!
I sliced into my cling peach next. I noticed the colour – at least two different shades of orange. At that moment I decided to eat the peach consciously.
So I stopped thinking about everything that has to be done and I ate my peach with concentration. It was sweet and juicy, delicious, the colours so bright. I was suddenly struck by the miracle of it. This peach is amazing! It has been plucked off a tree!
I marveled at how the world and everything in it has been created with such beauty and functionality. Wow.
All that for a peach that I took the time to notice. I encourage you to try this sometimes and don’t stop at fruit, take notice of people too.
I wish you a beautiful day.
