Our most intimate and telling connection 5-2-22

Food is actually our most intimate and telling connection both with the natural order and with our living cultural heritage. Through eating the plants and animals of this earth we literally incorporate them, and it is also through this act of eating that we partake of our culture’s values and paradigms at the most primal and unconscious levels.

By confining and killing animals… – 5-3-22

By confining and killing animals for food, we have brought violence into our bodies and minds and disturbed the physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual dimensions of ourselves in deep and intractable ways.

Like sponges, we learned – 5-4-22

As children, through constant exposure to the complex patterns of belief surrounding our most elaborate group ritual, eating food, we ingested our culture’s values and invisible assumptions. Like sponges, we learned, we noticed, we partook, and we became acculturated. Now, as adults, finding our lives beset with stress and a range of daunting problems of our own making, we rightly yearn to understand the source of our frustrating inability to live in harmony on this Earth.

Until we are willing and able to make the connections – 5-5-22

Until we are willing and able to make the connections between what we are eating and what was required to get it on our plate, and how it affects us to buy, serve, and eat it, we will be unable to make the connections that will allow us to live wisely and harmoniously on this Earth.

Eating animal foods is a fundamental cause of our dilemmas – 5-6-22

Eating animal foods is a fundamental cause of our dilemmas, but we will squirm every which way to avoid confronting this. It is our defining blind spot and is the essential missing piece to the puzzle of human peace and freedom.

Our behavior invariably reflects our understanding – 5-7-22

Our behavior invariably reflects our understanding, and yet our behavior also determines what level of understanding we are able to attain.
