We eat but don't taste

"We eat but don't taste, we listen but don't hear, we love but don't feel. We spend our lives lost in our heads."
John Daido Loori, Zen Master, founder and abbot of Zen Mountain Monastery in Mount Tremper, New York.

What a great quote. It reminds me that we need to experience and take in the world with our whole selves, not just intellectualise it!
