Meal Prayers and Inspirations from Around the World
A companion book to Soul-Full Eating
For millennia, humankind has expressed their heartfelt gratitude for the life-sustaining nourishment of food through the rituals of prayer, meditation and simple quiet moments of contemplation.
The many expressions of gratitude that are contained in this book have evolved over time. They come from all corners of the earth, perhaps initially offered by candle light in the inner sanctums of monasteries, or around massive feast-laden tables or perhaps over meager meals eaten by the fireside under the stars and moon. They’ve been offered not only as thanks for what is visible in the form of food, but for the invisible, immeasurable elements–the life sustaining miracle inherent in breaking bread.
Mealtime is the perfect opportunity to bless, to acknowledge the miraculous in the mundane, and to realize we all are ultimately nourished by the same Source. This book is offered with the hope that you will find treasures within it. That it will be for you an inspired doorway that brings you closer and closer to the Divine inherent in all, until you find the doorway opened wide that ever beckons us to be consumed–to enter in and fall into the heart of God.
Just Sit There
Just sit there right now.
Don’t do a thing.
For your separation from God
Is the hardest work in this world.
Let me bring you trays of food
And something that you like to drink.
You can use my soft words
As a cushion
~ Hafiz, Persian Poet (1320-1389)
