I started with an egg salad sandwich. Before I bit in, I sat quietly, looking at my sandwich, and thinking about the eggs that made the egg salad.
Just how did those eggs come to be? I continued my serious meditation. Well, there had to be a boy chicken and a girl chicken, I think.
Then I started thinking about chickens mating. Hmm. I visualized the chickens in my mind.
I was so busy thinking about chickens going “all the way” that I absent-mindedly bit into the egg salad sandwich and continued eating it all up.
I don’t think this is how mindful eating is supposed to work. I will need to learn more.
