Thanksgiving Prayer

As Thanksgiving approaches I thought you might enjoy my favourite mealtime grace. I highly recommend reflecting on it before eating. Each time I say or read it first, it really offers me a deeper connection with, and enjoyment of the food.
One Heart Grace

As we make ready to eat this food
We remember with gratitude
The people, animals, plants, insects;
Creatures of the sky and sea
Air and water, fire and earth
All turning in the wheel of living and dying
Whose joyful exertion
Not separate from ours
Provide our sustenance this day.

May we with the blessing of this food
Join our hearts
To the one heart of the world
In awareness and love
And may we together with everyone
Realize the path of awakening
And never stop making effort
For the benefit of others.
