I always thought there was only one way to peel a banana. In fact I had never even considered there might be a different way, perhaps even a better way, until my yen-year-old granddaughter taught me a method she learned at school. It seems that monkeys peel their bananas from the bottom. I tried it, and it works. I’m so used to doing it one way, and because that way works for me I probably won’t change. Why mess with something that works, right?
I went to the Internet and discovered an article that demonstrated eight different ways to peel a banana. Is there a right way or a wrong way? I don’t think so. As long as you get to the fruit inside, are able to eat it, and the method doesn’t interfere with providing nourishment to your body—what difference does it make?
I used to think there was only one way to connect with The Divine. I was wrong about that, too. People might make a strong argument that their way is the best way, and who is to say if they are right or wrong. One thing I’m convinced of; however is that their way is not the only way, and that there is much we can learn from one another if we will only keep our minds and hearts open.
