But that’s life.

Years ago, I was telling one of my spiritual teachers (I’m lucky to have a number of them) all about how I started working with a whole foods chef to learn how to cook healing foods; it was very exciting. But I also had a complaint: that it took so much time in the day. I had to decide what I was going to have, go grocery shopping for the ingredients, prep the vegetables (wash, peel, chop, etc), then cook. Then eat, which took all of 20 minutes, then clean up. And then possibly do it again two more times in a day, every day. That’s a lot of time dedicated to food.

He said, “but that’s life.”

Asked I: “what is?”

Said he: “that which nourishes. Everything else if busy-ness.”
