sommore food for thought for today:) *Parable of an Empty Boatโ›ต* A monk decides to meditate alone, away from his monastery. He takes his boat out to the middle of the lake, moors it there, closes his eyes and begins his meditation. After a few hours of undisturbed silence, he suddenly feels the bump of another boat colliding with his own. With his eyes still closed, he senses his anger rising, and by the time he opens his eyes, he is ready to scream at the boatman who dared disturb his meditation. But when he opens his eyes, he sees itโ€™s an empty boat that had probably got untethered and floated to the middle of the lake. At that moment, the monk achieves self-realization, and understands that the anger is within him; it merely needs the bump of an external object to provoke it out of him.
From then on, whenever he comes across someone who irritates him or provokes him to anger, he reminds himself, *โ€œThe other person is merely an empty boat. The anger is within me.โ€* Take time for introspection & search for answers within.๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ™ #JWFfoodForThought good for when waiting in lines for brunch, sitting in crowded restaurant, missing your subway, or stuck in traffic;)

some food for thought today:) from @talia_sutra
Imagine traveling with everything you own: tables, chairs, books, dishes, sheets and clothes and beds...these things are useful but impossible to take from place to place. Experienced travelers pack light.
Equally, when we travel inwards, we must leave our useful thoughts, ideas and opinions behind and journey lightly, eventually empty of possessions and needs.

From our @jackswifecookbook ... "Jackโ€™s Wife Freda, the pair of downtown cafรฉs whose signs bear the illustrated face of their namesake grandma, is where Dean and Maya Jankelowitz have created a mecca of Jewish comfort-โ€‹ยญfood dining. Both New York immigrants, they have managed to meld the Ashkenazi and Sephardic dishes of their respective childhoods with the twang and spices of South African and Israeli flavors. But the comforts of their restaurants arenโ€™t limited to food. Something in their detailed coziness makes them worth queuing up for and inspires diners to linger after the plates are cleared. Consummate hospitality serves as the bedrock of their restaurants, and the communal, casual vibe feels oddly relaxed considering the flagship location is smack dab in the middle of SoHo, one of the cityโ€™s most kinetic neighborhoods. But there is a sense of traveling home when eating at Jackโ€™s Wife Freda, and itโ€™s no mistake that the restaurants are named after Deanโ€™s grandparents. Everyone has an origin story. Mayaโ€™s and Deanโ€™s stories started some 6,000 miles apart and eventually converged in a love song to New York". Introduction in our #JWFcookbook by @sveetee
