Start With Where You Are

026Someone played a YouTube Video about Happy Cows … It got me thinking about the consciousness of all beings; how the animals that live with me have personalities – feel things; maybe cows do too.  So why am I eating them – cows I mean?  And chickens?  And Pigs?  I might need to re-think a few things.

This, of course led to serious fretting about leather coats, shoes, purses.  If I stopped eating meat because of their “consciousness” – then I need to purge everything; because otherwise I’d just be a hypocrite.  But what about proteins?!  Will I get enough?!  STOP!  Just stop.  Start with where you are.  One thing I’m learning from meditation; I can’t do, be, change everything all at once, now, immediately – I just need to start with where I am.

Today I’m feeling the consciousness of cows.


““If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans.” ― James Herriot, All Creatures Great and Small
