1 – If we think about how good breakfast will taste while eating dinner, we won’t taste our dinner.
2 – Not tasting dinner, we imagine dinner doesn’t taste good, and insist that breakfast is better.
3 – Breakfast won’t be better, because we’ll be thinking about lunch, and won’t taste the food in front of us.
4 – Our shallow experience of the food in front of us is based on our inability to taste it, due largely to thinking about a future meal whilst eating this one.
5 – What’s crazy is thinking what happens after we die will be better than the life we are living. We think this for the same reasons we think breakfast will be better than the dinner in front of us. It has little to do with the quality of being alive, and more to do with the inability to be present for our lives. Maybe we aren’t present for our lives because of the belief there is a better one ahead.
6 – How would you eat if you thought this was the last meal you’ll ever have?
