Took me 42 years (give and take) to realize that while I like the taste of apples, I don’t like the process of eating an apple. 

I don’t like biting into a hard spherical surface (the mechanics of this action just don’t seem to feel good).  And then, of course, there is the issue of the core and the seeds…  But the taste is just  so to my liking… 

What to do?  “Keep eating apples,” mind says, “mindfully, not labeling the experience into “like” or “dislike”…  Ok… “Or,” mind adds, “keep on labeling (since it helps to know what you like and what you don’t like).”  Ok… 

Mindfulness – it seems – answers some questions and poses new ones.  Makes sense: mindfulness is a quest.
