Three bites

First bite, eat the food and think of the wise ones, your teachers. Offer it to them.

Second bite, think of someone who has been kind to you, offer it to them.

Third bite, offer to everyone who is starving or suffering.

This slows us, and opens up gratitude, compassion, and empathy.
