As I was snipping tips, measuring length, trimming to size and packing green beans into mason jars for canning I had a luscious feeling of love move through me. Was I feeling love for my beans or feeling love from my beans?
Love is never a one way emotion. Love is energy in motion, a charged electromagnetic connection and circuitry. Love is the flow of energy through matter.
And there I stood, in the kitchen, feeling “in love with” my green beans. I had planted their seeds, watered, provided their pole structure, watered, guided their vines upward, harvested with gratitude, and watered some more. Now I was canning — preserving them for future nourishment.
I never knew canning green beans would feel so spiritual…so loving.
