But why is it that you sometimes feel stuffed with one food, but still crave for another? I was stuffed with home made vegetable pad thai yesterday but still wanted something else. Also now, I am satisfied with fish, rice and veggie dinner but I so want that ice cream (no artificials)! WHY?
Why do westerners have such poor RASA? Wether it is art, furniture, food, etc.. - what lead our society to be so obease, unhealthy & shallow!
I am a chocolate addict. I hope this helps me!!
I have such a hard time with indulging chocolate! Yet i am a yoga instructor and massage therapist. I'm slightly over weight and desperately want to shed off pounds. After reading this article, I felt as though i wanted to go make a batch of cookies and stare at them as i eat a banana instead. haha. Thanks for sharing your mindfullness..hopefully i t will help me in the long run!
hi! it really is a splendid reveleation- this whole art of consuming in a mindful and sensual manner. I can't wait to improve my eating habits and experiences after reading such valuable feedback. NAMASTE.
I really enjoyed this article. As I am bringing mindfulness to each aspect of my life, eating was not something that even occured to me as a part of that presence. Thank you for another 'taste' of what it means to be truly present. Namaste

Thank you Mary for all the inspiration :)
I liked the description of food being "soul food" when one is approaching it with rasa in a mindful manner. It may help me to help my bulimic eating disordered clients and compulsive overeaters to replace their cognitive understanding that they need to eat food for entertainment versus true satisfaction and satiation.
