Letting Go with Guy Finley

The first purpose of the food we eat is to provide us with the best possible fuel needed for our interior and exterior work. The second purpose of food is to remind us that whatever we’re given to nourish ourselves with should always be taken in with a measure of gratitude. The third, and last purpose of food is for the pleasure it can provide. Having these prerogatives out of order — as they now are all around the world — is not only the chief cause of most of the physical misery visited upon the individual human body, but also serves as one of the driving forces responsible for mounting global suffering.
