Celebrating the Uposatha

Celebrating the Uposatha today because it is in one of the calendars we are using in the Daily Dhamma Study Group and I found out last night that my wife bought us tickets for a family drive in tomorrow. Normally I follow the Dhammayut dates but I figure it is better to observe one per week than to get hung up on a particular calendar and just forget it all together.

I found the quote above this morning and was struck by hoe true it is; especially during those times when one is fasting. How much trouble can we cause for ourselves by delighting overmuch in the taste of food? How often have I allowed myself to be tricked into believing that there is truly some lasting god to be had from food only for the results to end up in the toilet half a day later?
