Ian, this Dilbert comic strip (you linked to) is very good!

Conscious eating certainly is a meditation. I lived on an ashram for a year and all our group meals were eaten in silence - the point being to quietly contemplate that the food was nurturing our body. Just being in a quiet pose while awake and concentrating calms the body, emotions, and eventually slows the train of thoughts - from hi-speed to local. LOL.

Ian, the daily world peace group meditation in the first thread in the meditation forum asks you not to have refreshments while meditating, because it is a still sitting meditation. The point being to close the eyes, quiet the body, and concentrate on emitting waves of peace to our world.

Hence the first quote in my signature smile

Also when I began meditating the idea behind not eating beforehand was that it was "Too Grounding" in that Chi would be used in digesting the food that could be better used for the meditation.

Thank you!

I'm on the fence w/my memory - it's like re-learning everything all over again. The things I'm having to do for myself are things I remember long ago doing for a 5 yr. old (which was my daughter).

I'm like...don't I get another 40 or 50 yrs, before I get like this?

Anyway, yes, I'll get my board. It's in the basement. I need to anchor it so it's right in front of me. I just happen to have a clock that's the size of Garfield, can't miss it.

Plus this will take the load off having my husband explain it on a daily basis, lol.

Thanks again smile
