If you chew a mouthful of food long enough to thank all of the people who have gone into growing, cooking, manufacturing, touching, shipping, stocking, pricing it—you may be chewing for ten minutes or longer. Yet, this is a practice of some cultures called Mindful Eating. This is why most of the food in these cultures come directly from the garden to the table. Almost every situation in life takes a symphony of mechanisms to complete the action. Eating is at the top of the list.
Another example of this #Symphony_of_Mechanisms: touching a warm blanket to your face. The symphony of mechanisms would include nerve ending on your face, neural pathways to your brain, a particular portion of the brain emitting chemicals to cause you to feel comforted, etc. Everything in the world, if broken down to its smallest mechanism—in the case of digestion, for instance—is a symphony of chewing, digestive juices, harmonious vitamins, minerals, various organs in the body moving nutrition to the muscles and the blood stream.
The problem happens when we interrupt this miraculous symphony by adding or subtracting to what is already perfect. Humans who think they know better than the Creator tend to make the symphony a lot less harmonious and often harmful to the body, discordant and rife with out-of-tune chemicals.

In the case of Fat Free Foods, for instance, someone you don’t know or trust has decided to take what Spirit has provided as a perfect, organic source and alters it for the sake of losing weight or providing less fat. This of course, obstructs the process of this beautiful symphony and causes food to be digested in a different way than intended. This is why most nutritionists who understand the body and its many proper functions suggest we shop on the outside aisles of the grocery store or grow our own food to use more organic, basic food sources.
If you think about it, the reason why we want to eat fat free or sugar-free anything is because we want to be able to eat more or the food that is less nutritious and tastes sugary and fattening.
In the past nine months I have decided to go back to the basics. I wanted to prepare food with as little use of boxed, pre-made substances as possible. When I have to use something manufactured, I look at every item on the list of ingredients and make sure no extra additives have been forced into my diet.
As a result, yes I spend more time in the kitchen, but I enjoy food so much more, and suddenly I am digesting food in a way I haven’t in years. My system is like a well-oiled machine. I feel and look so much better than I have in years.
Your body is precious. It is our vehicle for awakening. Treat it with care
When we consider how hard it is to get quiet for meditation, we might also consider how much sugar or caffeine we put into the body. This causes the muscles to be restless and the heart to struggle. If you think you can sit quietly with all of this going on, you might think again. For the body to be a mechanism of peace, we must start with how we take care of it. The two main ways of care are:
- Food, and
If you expect your car to run efficiently, you wouldn’t put kerosene in the gas tank and olive oil in the oil chamber.
We must not only consider the food that goes into the body, but how we treat the body in the form of sitting too long at the computer, on the couch, not walking, not exercising, over-stressing over every little thing in life. If you consider your life and all of its functions a harmonious symphony of mechanisms, you will begin to understand how to maintain a happier, healthier you.
