This Food is the Gift of the whole universe:
The earth, the sky, and much hard work.
May we live in a way that makes us worthy to receive it.
May we transform our unskillful states of mind, live with compassion, and eat in moderation.
May we take only foods that nourish us and prevent illness.
We accept this food so that we may realize the path of understanding and love.

Beautiful, meaningful, mindful…a celelbration of all between Mother Earth and Father Sky. Yet without any bow to the supernatural or any dieties. No invocation or petitions (except to our own higher nature)…simply generating a posture towards the universe, towards all that is. 

~ Zen Buddhist Five Contemplations. TNH
