In SAVOR, we share a classic Zen story about a man riding a horse. The horse is galloping quickly, and it appears that the rider is urgently heading somewhere important. A bystander along the road calls out, "Where are you going?" The rider replies, "I don't know! Ask the horse!"
Does this sound familiar to you? Do you find yourself rushing through eating or through daily activities as though you are on auto-pilot? Do you find yourself in a rut, always responding in the same way to your surroundings? Do you act without thinking, without taking a fresh look at the situation and deciding whether you truly want to do what you are about to do?
