If we are going to eat turkeys on Thanksgiving, we should have a special animal to eat for other holidays.
New Years: Cheddar cheese stuffed mice poppers
Martin Luther King Day: Crows
Valentines Day: Love birds
Good Friday: Dolphins
Arbor Day: Robins and bluebirds
Memorial Day: Monkey burgers and small dogs
Fourth of July: Eagles (but of course not Bald Eagles as that would be wrong)
Summer Bank Holiday: Parrots
Labor Day: Dogs (Labrador Retrievers preferred)
Back to School Day: Chicks
Columbus Day: Newt, Panda, and Saint Bernard
Hanukkah: 7 Horses
Boxing Day: Dogs (Boxers preferred)
Think about it…it doesn’t make any less sense than eating turkeys on Thanksgiving does it?
Just because I like money doesn’t give me the right to rob people. Just because I like the taste of animals doesn’t give me the right to eat them.
Those who eat meat intentionally kill 50 billion land animals and uncounted sea animals each year. Alone in the US a million animals an hour are killed just because people enjoy the taste.
Peace begins with what you eat. Eat peacefully.
Eating meat is something you do to another’s body without their consent.
How large is a soul? To know the answer to this is the Red Pill; awakening a truth that you already know is there but you have held at bay for ease, to keep the world smooth, to take the Blue Pill.
You know something. What you know, you can’t explain. But you feel it. You felt it your entire life. That there is something wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it is there. Like a splinter in your mind.
Unfortunately no one can be told what the reason is for ahimsa, for not harming. You have to see it for yourself. I did not know until a bodhisattva—one who has who has forsaken nirvana to work for the salvation of all beings—asked
How large is a soul?
When a gnat flies to our food the thought is not of something in our food,
but of somelife that may end—of the struggle to aid another—to avoid harm to another—to repeal harm from another.
What size is a creature before it has a soul?
The size of a gnat; Of a ladybug; Of a lightning bug; Of a hamster; Of a rabbit?
Of a cat; Of a dog; Of a lamb; Of a calf?
Of your child?
Once you realize that all is a soul there is no going back, no way to take the Blue Pill and wake in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe—that harm to any is still something that you can do. Remember, I didn’t say it would be easy. I just said it would be the truth.
