A Peanut Butter Moment


This is a photo that captures the emotion of absolute present mindfulness -  which brings forth joy.

We made our own peanut butter by roasting red skinned peanut, shelling them altogether around the table, popping them in the food processor and whizzing with a tablespoon or two of peanut oil.

We all hovered around that processor with teaspoons ready….Delicious… the taste of it, but more wonderful and delightful, was that JOY  i felt.  It’s so important to practice mindfulness daily…we think we are being present but the majority of us aren’t…the peanut butter moment was a great reminder for me of the gift of being in the ‘moment.
