Thich Nhat Hanh
Touching Our Suffering
“He then elaborated four kinds of nutriments that can lead to our happiness or our suffering: edible foods, sense impressions, intention, and consciousness.
The first nutriment is edible food. What we eat or drink can bring about mental or physical suffering. We be be able to distinguish between what is healthful and what is harmful. We need to practice Right View when we shop, cook, and eat…
Our suffering comes from not eating mindfully. We have to learn ways to eat that preserve the health and well-being of our body ad our spirit…
We have to look deeply to see how we grow our food, so we can eat in ways that preserve our collective well-being, minimize our suffering and the suffering of other species, and allow the earth to be a source of life for all of us.”
via The Heart of the Buddha’s Teaching, by Thich Nhat Hanh (Pg 31-32)
