This food is a gift of the whole universe, the earth, the sky and much mindful work.

May we eat in mindfulness so as to be worthy of it.

May we transform our unskillful states of mind and learn to eat in moderation.

May we take only foods that nourish us and prevent illness.

May we accept this food to realize the path of understanding and love.

My friend Andre Talbot writes, “The five eating contemplations now hang on my refrigerator door as a constant reminder to be grateful of the efforts and work that it took for this food to make it to my table. They remind me to chew my food slowly and mindfully (to allow for healthy digestion), to really enjoy the tastes and sensations, and to be fully awake and present in each moment of my life.”

Morning Sun, Morning Sun, Come my way, Come my way
Morning Sun, Morning Sun, Come my way, Come my way

Come my way, Come my way, Take my pain, Take my pain
Come my way, Come my way, Take my pain, Take my pain

Take my pain, Take my pain, down below, down below
Take my pain, Take my pain, down below, down below

Down below, Down below – healing waters down below

May you walk in Beauty in a sacred way
May you walk in Beauty each and every day.

May you walk in Beauty in a sacred way
May you walk in Beauty each and every day.

May the Beauty of the Fire, lift your spirit higher,
May the Beauty of the Earth, fill your heart with mirth,
May the Beauty of the Rain, wash away your pain,
May the beauty of the Sky teach your mind to fly.

May all sentient beings enjoy happiness and the root of happiness.
May we be free from suffering and the root of suffering.
May we not be separated from the great happiness devoid of suffering.
May we dwell in the great equanimity from passion, aggression, and prejudice.

Each line of this chant refers to one of the four limitless qualities:
The first, loving-kindness; the second, compassion; the third, rejoicing; the fourth, equanimity.
