Saying Grace

Here's a few words of grace I'm going to try out for the next few days before I eat or drink anything. I got them from my teacher, Dharmajim.

I invite you to join me in this practice, and comment as we go along....

Here is Jim's grace, edited ever so slightly by the guy who can't leave well enough alone:

With every bit of food
The whole world sustains me.
With every breath I breathe
The whole world sustains me.
I now accept this food
With gratitude and thanks.
May I use this gift of food
For the benefit of all sentient existence.



If you already say grace, keep doing it. Maybe you will decide to share your words of grace in the comments section.
